LAGOS STATE MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE-
REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR SERVICE PROVIDERS FOR REGISTRATION OF FEED MILLERS
LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT
MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE
REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (REoI)
(SERVICE PROVIDERS FOR REGISTRATION OF FEED MILLERS)
The Ministry of Agriculture hereby solicits for Expression of Interest for the engagement of Service Providers, who would ensure identification, registration and monitoring of all Feed Millers operating within Lagos State with a view to curtailing feed nutrients’ insufficiency and/or excesses, thus improving food safety and quality, reducing feed production cost and maximizing the sub-sector’s potential for employment generation.
Animal Feed has a direct influence on the quality and safety of animal products such as egg, poultry, meat, fish etc. With a total of 600,000 MT of feed estimated to be produced in Lagos State on an annual basis for the livestock and fisheries industries, consumers and farmers within these industries expect feed manufacturers, distributors and retailers to supply safe and high quality feeds. However, empirical evidence on the reliability of Feed Analysis Data suggested an inconsistency in the composition of the feed ingredients in variance with standard dietary requirements (United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, FAO 2011).
In view of the sub-sector’s potential to provide direct and indirect employment for over five (5) million people in Lagos State, as well as the need to ensure quality feed production and safe, value-oriented consumption, the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture urgently desires to identify, register and monitor all Feed Millers in the State. Therefore, eligible applicants are invited to express their interests as Service Providers to carry out the under-listed services, amongst others, in collaboration with the Ministry:
Identify Feed Millers in the State; ii. Ensure that the Feed Millers are registered with the State for easy regulation and monitoring; iii. Monitor and update the registration status of the identified and registered Feed Millers on an annual basis; Ensure that Lagos State Government-approved laboratory tests and analyses are carried out on random samples collected from each Feed Miller on a regular basis;
