LEAD CONFERENCE PARTNER
Contact Consulting Nigeria
Contact Consulting Nigeria seeks to help organizations gain in-depth understanding of food-related value chains in markets where data is critical but unavailable or unreliable. Led by Folusho Olaniyan, a 20-year veteran in the food industry and a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Cochran Fellow, the Contact Consulting team leverages its deep expertise and networks across various food and agriculture related fields to draw actionable commercial and operational insights that help to drive quality decision-making. Gaining clarity on market realities is key in making investment decisions and the Contact Consulting aims to bridge the gap between investment hypotheses and impactful results. Supported organizations include Informa, World Economic forum, West Africa Food Markets, Dalberg Global Advisors, Cassava Adding Value for Africa (CAVA) - a Bill & Melinda Gates sponsored organization focussed on cassava market development, and the Market Development for the Niger Delta program (MADE) - a DFID-driven initiative aimed at promoting economic growth through value chain promotion.
