The Nigeria Agribusiness Register is powered by Commodity Development Initiative – a social enterprise – and Rossland Research. Both organizations were founded by Roland Oletu Oroh. Roland is also the founder and CEO of Rossland Group – a diversified business development services provider for the agriculture and food sector offering research, market intelligence, background checks, and human capital placement services, among other services.
The vision for the Register was borne during the time Roland spent with the U.S. Agency for International Development as Project Manager for Agribusiness and Enterprise Development, where he managed agribusiness development and trade facilitation projects from 2010 to 2017.
The Register creates a fact tank for agribusiness in Nigeria and it is expected to facilitate new projects into the agribusiness space through partnership with public sector institutions and agencies notably the Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission and the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
