Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came
My name is Jummai Victor Tela, I am married with four kids, living in the northern and I am a farmer. I have been farming peanut in subsistence level for the past eight years. Peanut is one of the natural resources in my country Nigeria, it is very rich but have not properly and efficiently utilized which I believed is one of the reasons why poverty and malnutrition is very high. I saw the nutrient value in peanut and the potentiality of using it to make nutritious yoghurt. That was brought this idea of making affordable peanut yoghurt for consumption in Nigeria.
