Slide of the month (SOTM) December. The food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing industry in Nigeria

Prior to the Covid outbreak, manufacturing in Nigeria had been recovering from the 2016 recession, even though the sector still faces various challenges, such as intermittent power supply, infrastructural deficits, forex shortage and Naira devaluation. africon did a market analysis for a European food ingredient manufacturing company interested in understanding the industry in Nigeria. The project aim was to understand potentials in various market segments and to ultimately determine scale and scope of opportunities for our client. Within our research, we found that the food, beverage and tobacco sectors account for 38% of all manufacturing output in Nigeria. We were furthermore able to share the size of the market and identify key players and partners to provide direction for future sales efforts in the region.
