COCOA BEANS EXPORT IN NIGERIA; NON-OIL EXPORT OPPORTUNITY IN NIGERIA.

Providing employment for a large section of the population, agriculture remains a major source of economic activity in Nigeria. Nigeria produced 242 000 tonnes of cocoa in 2008. The National Cocoa Development Committee (NCDC), made up of the 14 cocoa producing states in the country, has distributed new high yield cocoa seedlings to cocoa farmers, and continues to allow the purchase of chemicals and inputs at 50% subsidy.

Cocoa ( Theobroma cacao L. ) is a native of Amazon region of South America. The bulk of it is produced in the tropical areas of the African continent. There are over 20 species in the genus but the cocoa tree Theobroma cacao is the only one cultivated widely.

Cocoa is the second major non-oil foreign exchange earner in Nigeria after leather. It is produced in fourteen {14} states of the federation namely Ondo,Cross River, Oyo, Osun, Ekiti, Ogun, Edo, Kogi, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Abia, Kwara, Ebonyi and Rivers with an annual production rate of 400,000 metric tons {MT}.

Over 98% of the product is exported and it’s provides means of livelihood and employment to over five million {5,000,000} people.

In the year 2005 alone, export revenue from the sales of cocoa amounted to US $ 136.7 Million with Netherland, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, USA and Japan being the major export destination. Other emerging markets include China and India.

South West Nigeria is regarded as the cocoa belt of the country, accounting for 70 per cent of Nigeria’s annual production of 242,000 metric tonnes in 2008.

Global production of cocoa is concentrated effectively in the regions between 10° North and 10° south of the Equator. Traditionally, cocoa is cultivated in producing countries and sold for export in the form of beans. Importing countries then process the beans, transforming the raw goods into finished or semi-finished products (cocoa butter, cocoa liqueur, cocoa powder, etc.).

In recent years, in an effort to increase the value of exports, some producer countries, such as the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Brazil, have developed their own facilities for grinding beans.

World consumption is estimated at 2 800 000 tons per year. The largest cocoa importers are Europe (more than 1.2 million tons per year) and the United States (0.4 million tons per year). The largest importers are Holland, the US, Germany, Britain and Brazil.

The return on investment on the trading of cocoa beans is between 10- 25%.

COLUMBITE ORE EXPORT IN NIGERIA; NON-OIL EXPORT OPPORTUNITY IN NIGERIA.

The Nigeria nation is blessed with abundant mineral resources; fossil fuels and solid minerals. The most popular being the fossil fuels since these constitute the nation’s greatest foreign exchange earner. They have, therefore, tended to overshadow the solid mineral sector of mining industry.

The mineral spread in Nigeria is significant with evidence of 34 different minerals distributed in Nigeria’s richly endowed geology. Though not all the mineral occurrences will ultimately have enough reserves to be of viable interest to mining companies, the Nigerian government is leaving no stone unturned in its increasingly sustained efforts to delineate and objectively demonstrate the potential and encourage investments in all.

Nigeria has excellent and very significant deposits of columbite and Foraminifera Market Research seeks to expose the investment opportunity in the export of the product.

Columbite, also called niobite, niobite-tantalite and columbate [(Fe, Mn)Nb2O6], is a black mineral group that is an ore of niobium. It has a submetallic luster and a high density and is a niobate of iron and manganese.

This mineral group was first found in Haddam, USA. It forms a series with the tantalum-dominant analogue ferrotantalite and one with the manganese-dominant analogue manganocolumbite. The iron-rich member of the columbite group is ferrocolumbite. Some tin and tungsten may be present in the mineral. Yttrocolumbite is the yttrium-rich columbite with the formula (Y,U,Fe)(Nb,Ta)O4. It is a radioactive mineral found in Mozambique.

Columbite has the same composition and crystal symmetry (orthorombic) as tantalite. In fact, the two are often grouped together as a semi-singular mineral series called columbite-tantalite or coltan in many mineral guides. However, tantalite has a much greater specific gravity than columbite, more than 8.0 compared to columbite’s 5.2.

Columbite is also very similar to tapiolite. Those minerals have same chemical composition but different crystal symmetry: orthorhombic for columbite and tetragonal for tapiolite. The largest documented single crystal of columbite consisted of plates 6 millimetres (0.24 in) thick measuring 76 by 61 centimetres (30 × 24 in).

Source of columbite ore used as an alloy of steel to form weldable high speed steel for radio transmitting valves, heat sensitive detective devices called barometer, for jet engines and other aircraft components.

There is no available data on the volume of columbite deposit in Nigeria. They are known to occur in the following states Plateau, Kano, Kaduna, Bauchi, Kogi, Kwara and Nasarawa States.

The electronics industry is by far the largest consumer of tantalum (up to 60%) followed by the telecommunications industry which accounts for approximately 18% of demand units.

The return on investment on the export of columbite ore is estimated between 10%- 15%.

CRAYFISH PACKAGING AND EXPORT IN NIGERIA; NON-OIL EXPORT OPPORTUNITY IN NIGERIA.

Crayfish, a crustacean of higher order found in fresh water is a very popular spice in the tropics where they are used in the preparation of food. It is estimated that about 12,000 MT of crayfish is produced annually in Nigeria. Though the artificial rearing and production of shrimps{ crayfish} in Nigeria is not common is compared to the production of fish, processing and packaging of shrimps { crayfish} is gaining ground because of the advantage it presents to most house wives in Nigeria.

In this era of growing middle class in the country, processed crayfish comes in handy to very busy housewives who combines their roles as mothers and workers and who scarcely have enough time to engage in daily grinding of the crayfish they need. Single parents especially those in the working class also fall into the category.

The major raw material is required for production is crayfish and this can be sourced in abundance from Akwa – Ibom and Cross rivers states respectively. Nylon wrapping, cardboard cartons and the grinding machine, cutting and sealing machine, stapling machine and weighing scale are the other materials required for production.

Crayfish enjoys wide patronage locally from operators of bukateria, hotel and restaurants. The growing population of over 140,000,000 people also deepens the market for processed crayfish in Nigeria.

Processed crayfish also has market export market especially in markets with high concentration of people from the tropics.

The processing technology is relatively simple and involves the following: sorting, crushing and grinding, weighing and packing. Due to the scale of the business about four persons would be required in the business with the following function purchase, sorting & grinding, weighing & packaging and marketing.

Other agricultural produce that can be processed and packaged just like crayfish are onion, pepper, tomato, ogbono etc.

The return on this project is quite attractive and impressive that it would be difficult for any financial institution especially micro- finance banks with discerning credit officers to turn down any loan request for funding this project. Promoters of this venture will also feel comfortable to release their hard earned money to finance this project.

The successful implementation of this project begins with the preparation of detailed and bankable feasibility study report to ascertain the actual cost/benefit status of the project. Company registration with Corporate Affairs Commission, Nigeria Export Promotion Council, Standard Organization of Nigeria/National Food, Drug Administration and Control is also required.
