More Than 70% Of Food Exported From Nigeria Rejected Abroad – NAFDAC

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) says more than 70 percent of food exported from Nigeria is rejected abroad.

 

Mojisola Adeyeye, the agency’s Director-General, said this at the official commissioning of the new NAFDAC office complex at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.

 

The DG says the issue is causing huge financial losses to the exporters and the country at large.

However, she notes that the rejection of food exports by other countries may soon become a thing of the past if collaboration between NAFDAC and other government agencies at the ports is strengthened.

 

Mrs Adeyeye says NAFDAC and the port agencies will ensure goods being exported are of requisite quality and meet the regulatory requirements of the importing countries before they are even packaged.
