The Commercial Dairy Ranchers Association of Nigeria (CODARAN) was incorporated by five Promoters (who constitute its Board of Trustees) at the Corporate Affairs Commission, on the 24th day of January 2017 in Abuja, Nigeria. CODARAN is the nationwide apex body and collective voice for the interests of indigenous commercial dairy producers, ranch operators and dairy farmers of small, medium and large-scale. CODARAN is a non-political membership organization.
Our efforts are aimed at:
The missions provide opportunity for dairy stakeholders across the entire dairy value chain to learn world class practices, technologies and solutions in the dairy industry, and to transfer this knowledge and skills to help propel Nigerian dairy to the next level by leveraging on business partnerships.
We act as the collective voice of dairy industry operators in Nigeria by expressing the views of members to shape progressive policies and reforms.
We provide short courses to promote best practices and build capacity in the Nigerian dairy industry.
We provide mentoring and advisory services for newcomers in the dairy business and others who need guidance to reposition their dairy businesses for optimal productivity.
Our international dairy conferences bring together dairy farmers, companies, investors, researchers, regulators, and policy makers for knowledge-sharing and networking to the benefit of businesses and the growing Nigerian dairy industry.
We explore and discover new knowledge and ideas, gather and measure information of interest to build an industry that thrives on best practices and data-backed decision making.
We publish monthly newsletters, quarterly and annual reports on the outlook of the Nigerian, African and global dairy sectors.
