NEW: food ingredients Nigeria 2020!

With almost 200 million inhabitants, Nigeria has long been the largest food market on the African continent. Expenditure in the F&B sector is growing steadily and F&B production is by far the largest segment of the Nigerian processing industry.

Accordingly, the demand for food and beverage ingredients is rising continuously. So it was only natural that more and more leading international ingredients companies took part in Agrofood Nigeria.

Fairtrade supports SOS Children’s Villages Nigeria

The cooperation between SOS and fairtrade in Africa has been going on for 16 years now. It all started back then in Algeria and Morocco.

On the occasion of Agrofood & plastprintpack 2018 in Lagos, it was extended to Nigeria for the first time, and the cooperation has been continued ever since. SOS got a stand and was included in the entire marketing campaign around the fair. Representatives of SOS were introduced by fairtrade to potential cooperation partners on the part of the exhibitors, for example for internships, apprenticeships, donations… The proceeds of the exhibition was donated to SOS Children’s Villages Nigeria.Plot 2 & 3, Water Corporation Dr, Victoria Island, Annex, Nigeria
