The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) has given Lagos-based Farmcrowdy Group the award for “Disruptive Innovation in Agribusiness Technology”.

According to a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) by the group on Thursday in Lagos, the award was given on Wednesday in Rome, Italy.

Onyeka Akumah, the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the group, said that it was a confirmation of the firm’s hard word to ensure sustainable agriculture and food sufficiency in the country.

Akumah said that the award was given at the UNIDO International Award 2019 of Innovative Ideas and Technologies in Agribusiness, which was the third in its series.
