Utterlyyum Partners With Local Fabricators To Innovate Home-grown Agricultural Technology
Launches Exciting, New Fruit Juices and Dried Fruits Product Line
UtterlyYum is expanding its portfolio of products and has been in development to ensure it continues to produce high quality fruit and agricultural products to meet the ever-growing demand from customers.
The development process involved working with fabricators in the country to build a functioning prototype machine for the processing of fresh Coconut. This collaboration with local fabricators, is part of UtterlyYum's commitment to promoting homegrown science and technology and the commercialization of agriculture in Nigeria while delivering quality and affordable products to consumers.
UtterlyYum continues its tradition of innovating to optimize its production processes and sharing these innovations with other local manufacturers to achieve similar levels of flexibility and efficiency. This latest coconut processing machine is simple to use but prior to now only existed abroad. The new machine safely takes out a step in the coconut production process and therefore reduces the need for heat treatment of coconuts.
Given the energy saving benefits, the machine is fast becoming the standard for coconut-based product manufacturers, as processors continue to seek ways to reduce their growing energy costs.
The three new products will be available for purchase in major supermarkets and fast-food restaurants where UtterlyYum is currently sold. They are also available on the company's website.
Speaking on the launch of the new products, the Innovation behind them and projections for the future, Shola Adekoya, the Founder of Utterly Yum had this to say:
"While gearing up to begin production of our Pineapple and Coconut juice, Dried Pineapple and Coconut and our Dried Fruits and Nuts, one of the challenges we faced was that of the time between when we develop products and lead time for machinery import. We had developed three different products that require us to process fresh coconuts. We have had to make innovation a core part of our culture and we always ask ourselves, is there a better way of doing this? I am confident that we will see more process optimizations as we go along… We plan to eventually build a juice concentrate making plant in Nigeria taking inputs from within Nigerian farms and processing it for Nigerians and the rest of the world."
