Our Expertise

Onida’s expertise in implementing and developing entire agricultural projects begins from the initial concept stage, through design, to construction and operation. Onida covers every aspect of practical agricultural practice and business, including:

A Short Background

Our story begins in Africa, specifically Kenya during the early 1980's. This was at a time when there was very limited work and know-how with greenhouse development, and was extremely untouched when discussing advanced technologies within this field.
Gradually, the region started seeing more and more greenhouses spread across various locations, whereby our large scale and industrial involvement, today spanning all over the globe, has brought major change and development.
Today East Africa is considered a global and central hub in the agricultural arena of flower and vegetable growing in modern greenhouse structures, with over 3,500 Hectares of greenhouses spread across the numerous nations.
Kenya alone is one of the leading exporter of roses around the world, and this is directly related to the experts of the company that created a key trading sector that is globally recognized in the world today.


The Future of Aquaculture in Africa

Our team has specialized in unique techniques and various projects from the early 1990’s, spanning from various points in the world including South America, Israel, the US, and China to name a few. In Africa, and specifically in Nigeria, the sector of fish farming is quickly on the rise. Since fish is the main source of protein in the region, the Nigerian government has decided to focus on this industry in order to satisfy the population demand for fish, including barramundi, tilapia, and catfish to name a few of the species being grown in Open Ponds and Recirculated Aquaculture Systems.
This significant development in the region is also to decrease the millions of dollars spent on importing frozen fish every year, while becoming a global player within the growing interest and need for Aquaculture and fish farming. Each farm is built with the purpose of producing about 1,000 ton per year, whereby creating more of these farms will unquestionably have a direct impact on the amount of money spent by the Nigerian government (and various African governments in general) on having to import frozen fish, whilst creating a market for local, and with time, foreign consumption.
