Guide to Profitable Agricultural Export business in Nigeria
« on: November 14, 2019, 08:47:18 AM »
This is agricultural Export trading which guarantees good returns on capital on almost monthly basis exporting Sesame seed, Shea butter, cassava products, Wood charcoal, Honey, Gallstones, Bitter Kola, Cashew, Ginger, Gum Arabic, Chilli pepper, Cotton etc.   This is a sector that is currently untapped to the maximum as it offers a high return on the investment with minimum risk and great opportunities for growth.   The highlighted commodities are in high demand overseas with high prices.   
The non oil export business is still at its very primitive stage in Nigeria with a high potential for growth.   The market is thus inexhaustible [especially for agriculture commodities and other consumables.   Therefore, there is space for anyone that would like to earn foreign exchange via the export business.   If you are interested in export business, you can start as a armchair export, or enter the business as a part-time exporter and finally as a full time exporter.   If you enter as a full time exporter, then you should grow to become a part time exporter and finally a full time exporter depending on your strategy.   

Some of the commodities anyone can export
Cashew nuts
Kola nuts
Palm kernel
Cow horns and hooves
Timber Cimelina

Bitter kola
Bitterkola has health benefits.   Bitter kola has greater variety use; from its use as an ingredient in the production of Kola soft drinks to agricultural produce in the treatment of bacterial infections such as tuberculosis and diarrhea. 

Bitter Kola exportation is profitable.   According to statistics, Nigeria is one of the highest producers of bitter kola in the world.   With about 90% of its current production consumed locally.   There is an opportunity for individuals looking to start Bitter Kola exportation; as it is of high demand in countries like Great Britain, America, China, India and other Asian countries. 

What is the current price of Bitter Kola?
Presently, you can sell 1kg of Bitter Kola at the international market for $17.  00; while you can easily purchase it locally as low as ₦600.  00 (less than $2).   The profit margin is high, even after factoring all overheads and cost of shipping. 

Similar to the process of exporting Kola nuts, I will advise that you get a serious buyer before committing to much capital its exportation. 

Sesame Seed Export
Sesame seeds in ranked second in commodity demand in Nigeria.   The first is Cocoa.   As a result, Nigeria is ranked third on the list of major producer of sesame seeds across the globe.   Only India and China (respectively) produce more. 

Presently, Nigeria currently produces over 500,000 tonnes of Sesame Seed per year.   And with the current ₦600,000/tonne in the global market, the country is raking in substantial revenue for the exportation of Sesame seeds. 

Sesame seed export is very profitable.   It is one of the commodities with the highest return on investment.   The product is readily available and Nigeria sesame seed has good quality rating in the international market. 

Where do Sesame Seed grow in Nigeria?

Sesame seed is widely grown in the following states:
Jigawa (highest producing states);
Katsina; and
Kogi States. 

Ginger Export
Ginger export is the export of fresh ginger, ginger powder, and sun dried split Ginger from Nigeria to international buyers located in various parts of the world.   It is mostly exported semi-processed and further processed upon arrival at the buyer’s facility for its intended uses.   The season for ginger runs from May to October.   Supply goes on for upward of nine months, guaranteeing sustainable exports.   All exporting companies in Nigeria comply with the important food safety standards (SPS).   Adherence to best practices and food safety measures at all steps in the value chain is ensured, from farmer to exporter. 
This is a very important commodity in the export market.   Ginger is a product that is marketable because it has various qualities.   Demand for ginger is high both in Nigeria and overseas as Nigeria ginger meets international standard by quality and quantity.   If you go with ginger, you will gain benefit of higher return on investment that covers your local product cost and overhead expenses while assuring good profit for you. 

Types Of Ginger Exported In Nigeria
1).   Sun Dried Split Ginger:
Sun dried split ginger is the most exported type of ginger from Nigeria.   They’re usually dried to boost the shelf life so it can be exported to any country around the world on a long voyage and for further storage.   As a result, sun dried split ginger exporters in Nigeria are the most common ginger exporters found in Nigeria. 

2).   Fresh Ginger:
Fresh ginger is far less exported in Nigeria than sun dried split ginger.   Because of its short shelf life, fresh ginger needs to be shipped as soon as it is harvested, else, it would have to be dried before export. 

3).   Ginger Powder:
Ginger powder is also exported from Nigeria after processing fresh ginger. 
Business Opportunities in Ginger business

1).   Ginger Export:
Fresh ginger or dry split ginger is usually sold at varying amounts at the farm areas or local markets and are then resold to international buyers at varying prices per metric tonne depending on the specification and other factors.   Dried split ginger exporters in Nigeria usually have a strong connection to enable them to buy ginger at the lowest possible price, and as a result, they’re able to help most international buyers of ginger get the products they need. 

2).   Ginger Brokerage:
When you have little to no capital to venture into a particular type of business, the best bet is to first start by brokering the sales of the products and services.   And in this case, you can broker the sales of ginger for dry split ginger exporters in Nigeria to international buyers of ginger.   You could venture into the Ginger brokerage business by linking a buyer to a ginger seller, and in the process, add a markup price per metric tonne for your organisation, after getting the final selling price from the seller or get a standard commission from the ginger supplier.

Cashew Nut
The demand for cashew nut is very high especially among the Asian and European countries of the world.   Nigeria cashew nut is very marketable and it sells well in the international market.   Return on investment is high after deducting expenses and product cost.   Our cashew nut is premium quality raw cashew nuts, with an average 48 kernel yield out-turn.    There is a reliable and sustainable supply base in cashew offer.   Our large production base with 19 producing states makes us the fourth largest producer of cashew nuts worldwide. 

Need more information that will benefit you.   In Nigeria, cashew season is long.   We have a relatively long cashew producing season – December to June.   Cashew is stored, so exporting goes on all year around.   Supply is therefore guaranteed.   All exporting companies comply with most important food safety standards (SPS).   Adherence to best practices and food safety at all steps in the value chain (farmer àmerchant à processor à exporter) Nigerian cashew boast excellent qualities such as good nut count, high kernel output ratio, excellent moisture content and less defective nuts. 

Which country imports cashew nuts?
Germany imports cashew nuts from Vietnam, Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, India, and Nigeria.   The primary source of cashews in Germany is the Netherlands who import them from Brazil, Africa, and Asia.   India is the largest single producer of cashew nuts while West Africa–principally Ivory Coast, Benin, and Guinea-Bissau—is the largest regional producer.   Vietnam, Brazil, and East Africa are the other major sources of production.   Indonesia has become a major producer and exporter in Southeast Asia. 

Which grade of cashew is best?
W – 240, it is an attractive grade which is reasonably priced.   W – 320, are the most popular among cashew kernels and highest in terms of availability, worldwide.   W – 450, are the smallest and cheapest white whole kernels and hence the favorite among low priced whole grades. 

What is the difference between cashew nut and cashew kernel?
Cashew Kernels.   Cashew Nut Kernels is Processed from Raw Cashew.   Cashew Kernel intact from the shell and grading them carefully to superior standards required by top food companies all over the world.   The un-shelled nut is steamed to soften the shell and carefully cut open. 

Gum Arabic
Gum Arabic is a commodity with good potential for the export business.   The demand for gum Arabic is high especially in Europe and Asian countries of the world.   To be specific, “Two countries, France and India, import three-quarters of all crude gum Arabic.   After processing, France alone exports two-thirds of all processed gum Arabic.   Also know that there is a single European manufacturer, France-based Nexira – which calls itself a “manufacturer of natural innovative ingredients for the food, nutrition and health industries” – is said to hold a 50% global market share in processed gum arabic products.   Gum Arabic is a promising commodity for producing countries due to its potential to generate foreign exchange, promote sustainable agriculture and forestry and ensure food security. 

Gum arabic is natural product derived from hardened acacia tree sap, harvested in the Sahel region of Africa, gum arabic is used primarily by the food industry.   Given its many desirable properties, safety record and natural origin, gum arabic is the most commercially valuable of what are known as exudate gums – those secreted by plants.  It is used as a stabilizer, a binder, an emulsifier or a viscosity-increasing agent, not only in confectionery, soft drinks, wine, liquor, and dietary fibre, but also for non-food products such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, printing, ceramics, photosensitive chemicals, textiles, paper, ink, paints and adhesives. 

Indeed, the three largest exporters of crude gum arabic are Sudan, which accounts for 66% of the total, Chad with 13%, and Nigeria with 8.  5%, in 2014–2016.   In addition, exports of processed gum arabic more than tripled, from 17,000 tonnes to 53,000 tonnes in the same period.   If you invest in gum Arabic, you will reap good return on your investment that will cover adequately your product cost and overhead expenses. 

There is business in Sheabutter.   It is one of the lucrative commodities to export with potential for good return on investment.   There is return of over 40% on investment.   The commodity is readily available in some part of Nigeria as Kwara, Kogi, Oyo, kebbi, Niger etc.   Just as sheabutter, it’s raw material is sheanut.   Sheanut is also a highly demanded product in Nigeria and is used for producing many products by the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and confectionery industries.   We are the leading exporter of Shea nuts and butter in the world with a total trade value estimated at $600,000. 

You can take advantage of the vast opportunity that exists in the export and value addition of Shea nut and butter.  Incentives are offered for better quality nuts through premium that are paid to exporters and Nigeria’s Shea is one of the best in the world and qualify for organic certification. 

The return on investment on the export of Shea nut is estimated between 10%- 15% while for Shea butter it is between 15%-25%.    The export season for shea nut commences by June and ends in October.   Major destinations for Nigeria’s Sheanut and Butter are the EU and Japan.   Major European importing companies are primarily based in Denmark, Sweden and the UK.   The special opportunity on this business is that you can start local production of Shea Butter here in Nigeria and develop it into an international brand which can be sold under your company brand name in overseas and also here in Nigeria.
