Fresh Agro Tours Necessary For Agri Business Investors.
Using agro tours to become international agribusiness operators – Business day 12th December
To be a major player in today’s business world requires exposure, networking, marketing and determination, a definite turnaround from old ways of doing business to new technology, internationally acceptable businesses.
Olufunke Taiwo, chief executive, Hadur Travels and Tours, a pioneer in agro-tourism, urges agro entrepreneurs, farmers and industrialists to avail themselves of the opportunity of visiting modernised and highly successful farms and agro-allied businesses to get firsthand knowledge on making agribusiness a money-spinner.
She says: “This is necessary for business operators who want to consolidate on their 2012 gains in 2013, because even in this hard times, there are farms and agro-allied businesses still raking in money.”
She adds that Hadur Travels locates such farms or agribusinesses and their operators and then provide opportunities for its clients to travel there to get practical insight into the success of those businesses and the know-how on applying such to their own businesses.
“The plan is so simple and it is a win-win situation for all. As tour operators, we package the tours to be stress free; we also take clients on visits to international exhibitions. The farmers/agro-allied business operators end up getting more for less as the package comes with the opportunity to grow their businesses along international lines.

Our success story in Businessday of wed 19th september 2012.
As a result of the business success stories of investors who went on tour of Israel and Songhai Farm in Benin Republic to understudy the success in agribusinesses, Hadur Travel and Tours has decided to organise more agro tours to these places.
Olufunke Taiwo, chief executive, Hadur Travel and Tours, says, “Apart from the collective and cooperative farms, there are private farms in Israel that have survived since the 19th Century when they were established, and also newly established private venture farms that use simple technologies with amazing results. We always ensure that our clients get to meet the people behind the amazing results on these farms and make connections with them so they can make extraordinary profit as well.”
She adds, “Songhai Centre is one of the world’s best examples of a complete cycle of farming, offering the visitor insights into the entire process of agriculture from conception to harvesting and marketing of products, all in one location. In addition, Songhai, to combat climate change, produces its own biogas by using plants mixed-up with animal droppings to clean and reuse waste from their staff toilet as gas to power its irrigation machines.”
Sesso Leone, a senior official and tour guide at Songhai Centre, said during the last tour organised by Hadur Travel to Songhai for investors, “nothing is wasted here. Even maggots that are naturally attracted to animal droppings are put into good use; they are food for the many varieties of fishes in the Songhai ponds.”
He explained this while guiding the Hadur Travel Agency clients round the centre.
