About Safe Food and Feed Foundation

The Safe Food and Feed Foundation is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) based in Nigeria with the aim of increasing awareness on safety in food and feed processing and storage. It promotes entrepreneurship in agriculture, particularly among the youths. The SFFF intends to achieve the goals through partnership with relevant research institutions, individuals, solution providers, manufacturers of analytical equipment and materials, governments , farmers, food and feed industries, national , international bodies and other stakeholders.

The need to achieve our aim is underscored by the health implications of the consumption of dietary contaminants to man and livestock. The fact that the export of such unwholesome items constitutes serious economic loss to the country is also of note. Through meetings (seminars , workshops, trade fairs, etc) press release, online information, and collaborations, the Foundation hopes to achieve increased enlightenment and enhanced capacity building, thereby improving human health through wholesome nutrition.

So, let s work together.
