Nigeria’s foremost dairy nutrition company, FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria was recently conferred with the National Productivity Merit Award in Abuja.
The award, which was presented to the company by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, was given by the Federal Ministry of Labour during the National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM) awards ceremony, recently.
The National Productivity Order of Merit (NPOM) Award is given to the most productive organisations or individuals drawn from all sectors of the Nigerian economy.
Upon receiving the award on behalf of his company, the Human Resources Director of FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria, Mr. Tomi Oni, acknowledged that the award would motivate the company to strive even harder in upholding its mission of nourishing Nigerians with quality dairy nutrition.
“In times like this when the economy is sensitive and industries are struggling to stay up and break even, it is a lot of effort to keep staff motivated and more so earning a national recognition. It’s a great honour to be awarded with the National Productivity Order of Merit,” Oni said.
FrieslandCampina WAMCO aspires to be an inspiring and dependable employer that offers its employees opportunities, relevant training and education and a good and safe working environment.
FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria PLC has been a part of most Nigerian homes since 1954 through its iconic brand, Peak Milk.
The Company is a multinational manufacturing company and an affiliate of Royal FrieslandCampina of The Netherlands, one of the largest dairy cooperatives in the world.
They are the makers of Peak, Three Crowns and Friso brands of milk in Nigeria. To further increase its local content and support the Federal Government’s initiative to grow the Agriculture sector, FrieslandCampina WAMCO pioneered the Dairy Development Program (DDP) in August 2010.
The DDP is gradually developing into a full national program, ensuring the transfer of technology to male and female dairy farmers on best milk production practices.
