How It All Began

El-kanis was incorporated in Nigeria on 16th March 2012, with an established 10,000 capacity poultry farm. The idea of providing innovative based services to agribusinesses came to the founder, Ekanikpong Ben after observing how co-farmers were facing challenges ranging from non-availability of finance, climatic vagaries, soil degradation, pest infestation and diseases, operational inefficiencies and poor market access. He met his friend, a tech developer and co-founder Philip Nwokoma, on how to design affordable solutions that can prevent farmers from losses and avert the agrarian crisis. Philip left his high rising career at Adipster Tech Ltd, a technology development company in Hong Kong to help set up El-kanis and Partners Technology Solutions that will address several pain points of farmers and build a sustainable future for food security system across the country and region.
