Air Business Express Ltd (ABX world), an indigenous agro-allied solutions provider, has joined Global Good Agricultural Practice (Global G.A.P), which sets worldwide standards for safe and sustainable agriculture.

ABX World, a first class globally recognised courier/cargo firm incorporated in 2005, is the first and presently, the only Nigerian Company to join the global body.

The company said it is determined to liberate the masses from economic slavery.

Global G.A.P. members create private sector incentives for agricultural producers worldwide to adopt safe and sustainable practices to make the world a better place to live in for the global community.

Its set mission is to globally connect farmers and brand owners, like notable supermarkets in Europe and North America, in the production and marketing of safe food to provide reassurance for consumers.

Global G.A.P CEO, Dr. Kristian Moeller in a letter sent to ABX said ABX World has become part of producers and suppliers members who “demonstrate their commitment to fully comply with the Global G.A.P.

Speaking on the feat, MD/CEO of ABX World Limited, Captain John Okakpu expressed delight over the Global G.A.P membership status, adding that the feat would help place Nigeria in the global agricultural export map.

Okakpu said that ABX World is the new face of agro-allied export in the country, saying it was fashioned to train farmers and others within the logistics and supply chain.

“The global network that we operate at ABX WORLD is very richly enhanced by our strategic alliances with some of the biggest and best players in the industry as follows; Pilot Air Freight based in USA (; including local national certifications by NCAA, FAAN”.

Commending the Anambra State Government for taking the bull by the horn in granting 1.5bn loan to farmers, he said, “Solutions to the nation’s economic challenges are no quick fixes, however, agriculture is that sector that can do it for us”.
