Notore was honoured with a prestigious service award of excellence by the Nigerian Customer Service Awards (NCSA) at the first edition of their awards ceremony on October 31st at the Bolingo Hotel and Towers, Abuja.
Notore outscored other nominees in the agriculture category and was recognized for the strides we have made in the industry as well as our incredible impact on Nigerian farmers.
Innocent Okuku accepted the award on behalf of Notore. He thanked the NCSA for the recognition and pledged the organization’s commitment to continuous improvement in customer service delivery.
Notore Chemical Industries Limited (Notore), operator of the only urea fertiliser plant in sub-Saharan Africa, has achieved another important milestone by winning a brand new equipped Toyota Hiace Ambulance Bus from the Nigerian Employers Consultative Association (NECA) and Nigerian Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) for ‘exceptional safety culture.’ NECA-NSITF conducted a nationwide HSE audit of its Nigerian member companies (numbering over 100) in June, 2013 under its Safe Work Intervention Project (SWIP) and Notore was adjudged and awarded among the best four (4).
Jite Okoloko, on Friday 4th November 2011, at the maiden edition of the Ernst & Young West African Entrepreneur of the Year, won the Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year Category. He was picked out of 7 other contestants in a keenly contested competition by an independent panel of judges. Mr Henry Egbiki, Country Head, Ernst & Young stated that the winners were determined by their contribution to the economic development in their country and to him “All contestants are winners in their own right, but someone has to win the prize”.
Jite, in receiving the award, said that there was a lot of work to be done in the agricultural sector as there were 7 billion mouths to feed in the world. Outside Africa, each person has over 25% more food but in sub Saharan Africa each person has 10% less food. There is therefore a lot more work to be done in Africa.
