In keeping with our ‘You First’ promise to Nigeria, FirstBank is supporting the entirety of the agriculture value chain, from food production to transportation, retailing and consumption. Food is the new oil, providing jobs, increasing self and community reliance and fostering economic growth. As the bank of millions of Nigerians, FirstBank aims to be the driving force and partner of first choice in facilitating this growth and building the future of the nation.
For small and medium enterprises who are active right from the start of the value chain, FirstBank provides necessary financing and advisory support that is essential to their stability and that facilitates their success. More affluent and upwardly mobile customers have worked hard to turn their passion and flair for food Into a viable career option. Chefs are the new celebrities! The Bank supports that passion and provides unique retail financial products that meet their career and lifestyle needs. Finally, food is adventurous and exciting and a focal point for building friendships and communal relationships. The Bank provides this value too by sponsoring events that bring us together and provide opportunities to enjoy food as a community.
These are the reasons FirstBank has partnered with Eventful on Fiesta of Flavours; a world class Food and Beverage fair holding at Harbour Point, Victoria Island Lagos from December 4th to December 6th 2015.
