24 hrs process of exporting Nigeria vegetable to foreign Countries

Nigeria vegetable comes in various types they include Amaranthus (Tete) , Tel Fairia, ( Ewedu), Corchorus olitorius ( Ugu) Others are, Ukazi, Ugba, Bitter leaf, etc. Almost all the vegetable in Nigeria can be produced for fresh market in 4-6 weeks after planting. It can be produced all the year round depending on the availability of water.
Method of exporting Nigeria Vegetable: You can export it fresh or dry. To export dry, you will need to wash before you take it to the machine for drying. You can dry it in a temperature of 42 to 45 degree. After the drying you will sort the bad ones and make sure the one you are sending is free from foreign particles. If you are exporting it fresh just make sure you it is free from foreign particles and it is ready for export. The dry vegetable is good for the US and far east while the fresh vegetable is very good for the UK market
About the dying machine: You can buy from Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi (FIIRO) while you can get the locally fabricated machine from, the weathers it can cost about N300,000 to N500,000. If you don’t have the money to buy one you can always take your vegetable to existing foodstuff exporters that has the drying machine.
Packaging: The packaging depends on the specification of the buyers, e.g. 25 grams 50 grams, 100grams, 1 kg, 2 kg 5 kg. You will need a Ceiling machine. Make sure it is properly labeled. Include your company, name and address on the Nylon. You can then arrange your vegetable in a special carton for vegetable export. You are the one to do the carton locally branded in your company name and other contact information of your organization.
Quarantine services: Quarantine service is a regulatory body for vegetable export, you will need to register with them before you can export any vegetable to the foreign Countries, they will need to certify it OK for consumption. Vegetable farmers producing Made in Nigeria are also working with the quarantine services because the quarantine officials go to their farms to fumigate the vegetables from time to time
Freight Forwarder: The freight forwarder will help you pay the freight charges and the documentation. However the freight changes are not constant this is due to the up and down movement of the exchange rate.
Documents needed to export Nigerian vegetable to the foreign Countries: You will need two certificates to export Nigerian vegetables to the foreign Countries, one is an export license from the Nigeria export promotion Council (NEPC) you can get it with less than 48 hours with about N10,000, you must have a limited liability company to obtain an export license, the other certificate you need is the one from the Nigeria quarantine services you will need to pay their registration fee of N50,000, then you will pay N25,000 for the Vegetable exporters union. If you don’t have money to do this you can leverage on the membership of the existing member to export your vegetable
How to get your vegetable: Your vegetable must be collected from registered farmers with the Nigeria quarantine service, they have a list of registered vegetable farmers and they go to their farms to fumigate the vegetables and make sure that the vegetables are free from fungi or any bacteria.
It takes only 6hrs for the vegetable to get to London and, if you are exporting fresh vegetable it will still remain fresh You can only export vegetables on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, while you can export any other food product on any day of the week.
Profitability: All vegetable are packed in 50 gram, 100 grams, 150 grams etc depending on the specification of the buyer. A bunch of Ugu leaf is being sold for N50 per bunch in our local market and 10 bunches which is 4kg will make a carton which is N500. The profit on investment per carton is N500; you have the right to give the importer the minimum order which he could order for, this may range from 500kg to 1000kg (1 tone) which is 125 Cartons to 250 Cartons respectively. Which is N62, 500 to N125,000 Profit. This calculation is based on the premise that you are buying at the local market for N50 but since you are buying in bulk the price of a bunch will not be more than N30. However if you are exporting vegetables the importer often times also order for other foodstuffs like Egusi, ogbono, dried pepper, ground crayfish and other foodstuff being consumed by Nigerians based in UK and this order is definitely skyrocket your profit margin.
Opportunity for small investors: As a small investor, you can start with small package foodstuff, the start up capital is less than N100, 000, while the return on investment is quite high, a lot of contract are coming from foreign Countries to meet the demand of over 30Million Nigerians that sojourn in this countries and a lot of Nigerians are opening a Grocery and foodstuff market in these Countries, these people are looking for regular suppliers. You can get buyer by registering at different trade porters, or getting listed in the African foodstuff directories, it’s FREE!


I was amazed by the level of orders coming in recently most from UK and US and lot of Nigerians foodstuff exporters have been very busy exporting these products. This could be an extra income for you because it is a business that you can operate on part-time basis. There are some foodstuff products that you don’t need a company registration, or NAFDAC approval to operate, you will collect your money so far you agree on a mode of payment with the importers. Your success in this business is guaranteed if you follow the right step. This is a special Invitation to the Nigeria multibillionaire foodstuff export business
