Agrofood Trade Show in Lagos: A Gateway to Growth for Nigeria’s Agriculture and Packaging Sectors


The bustling city of Lagos recently played host to the Agrofood Trade Show, a pivotal event that showcased the burgeoning opportunities within Nigeria’s agriculture and packaging sectors. The trade show, which ran from March 26th to 28th, drew an international crowd, featuring exhibitors from over 15 countries, including powerhouses like China, Belgium, South Africa, and India.

The event was not just a display of global innovation but also a testament to Nigeria’s rising profile in these critical industries. “The interest from businesses here in the country is increasing,” said a representative of Fair Trade, the organizers of the event. “It’s getting more important for local businesses to get in contact with companies who have been in the business for a long time. They have a lot of knowledge, and they can help to increase the businesses here.”

Daniel Dellemann, a representative of the German Consul, expressed optimism about the potential business opportunities stemming from the exhibition. “In Nigeria, there’s still a lot of opportunities, potential, and just the need to grow production and grow the whole value chain,” he remarked. “By processing it and putting it into the right package, you actually make it safer to transport and extend the lifetime of the food.”

The Agrofood Trade Show has clearly established itself as a cornerstone event for stakeholders looking to tap into Nigeria’s vast agricultural and packaging potential. With the presence of former President Obasanjo and the backing of Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, as well as the Kingdom of Netherlands, the event has set the stage for future collaborations that promise to drive innovation and growth in these sectors.
