SHEA NUT EXPORT IN NIGERIA; NON-OIL EXPORT OPPORTUNITY IN NIGERIA.

Though the leading exporting nation for Shea nut and butter in the world, Nigeria is yet to take advantage of the vast opportunity that exist 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 since most of the Shea tree in Nigeria are in bushes and forest which is not subjected to herbicides and fertilizers, Nigeria’s Shea nut is one of the best in the world and qualify for organic certification.

FACTS ABOUT SHEA NUT AND BUTTER

History: Shea nut butter has been used for centuries in Africa for cosmetics, funeral rites, medicinal, soap making and as cooking oil.

Estimated National Production: 500,000 MT annually.

Export from Nigeria: About 3% of the national production is exported.

Types: They are usually accessed based on the content.

Uses: They are used in the production of Shea butter which is used in the cosmetics, confectionary and other such industries.

Areas of Production: Shea nut is produced in Kwara State at Ode-Giwa in the Asa Local Government are and also in Minna area of Niger state in Nigeria. Other states include kogi, Oyo, Kebbi, Kogi and Ogun state.

Shea nuts are the fruits of Shea butter tree botanically know as Vitellaria. In Africa, there are two main commercial species namely Vitellaria paradoxa-mostly found in West African in countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Mali. The second specie is called Vitellaria nilotica is mostly in Uganda.

The fruit is usually 5-8 cm long and 3-4 cm wide, elliptic, a yellow or green berry with thick, butter-like, mucos pericap contains one seed which is oval or round. The seed is usually surrounded by a fragile shinning shell with large hillum on a broad base.

The following is the benchmark composition for the export of Shea nut

Free Fatty Acid {FFA} Content: Less than or equal to 60%

Moisture Content: Less than or equal to 70%

Oil Content: Greater than or equal to 45%

Latex: 4-10%

The oil content is the most crucial element of the Shea nut as that component is an important ingredient in the composition of the butter that goes into cocoa butter equivalent {CBE} and other by products. If the oil content is higher and the FFA and moisture content is lower, then the exporter will receive a price premium.

In terms of market share, the Chocolate and Confectionary market represents about 95% while the Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals market represent 5% of the market share.

The return on investment on the export of Shea nut is estimated between 10%- 15%.

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

The soybean (U.S.) or soya bean (UK) (Glycine max)is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean which has numerous uses. The plant is classed as an oilseed rather than a pulse by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).

Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many prepackaged meals;soy vegetable oil is another product of processing the soybean crop. For example, soybean products such as textured vegetable protein (TVP) are ingredients in many meat and dairy analogues. Soybeans produce significantly more protein per acre than most other uses of land.

Nigeria presently produces about 500,000 MT of Soybean annually making it the largest producer of the product on the African continent. Soybean is a legume which is produced in most the middle belt of the country with Benue state accounting for about 45% of the total production in country.

In Nigeria, soya beans are mostly produced in the middle belt with benue state accounting for over 70% of the production in Nigeria. Some of the states producing soya beans in Nigeria include Kwara, Kogi, Oyo, Ondo, Osun, Nassarawa, Kaduna, Niger, Bauchi, Ogun, and Taraba states. Other states are Adamawa, Abia, Enugu, Anambra, Jigawa, Lagos, Plateau, Ekiti and the Federal Capital Territory.

Soybeans are an important source of high quality and inexpensive protein and oil. With an average protein content of 40% and oil content of 20%, soybean has the highest protein content of all food crops and is second only to groundnut in terms of oil content amongst food legumes. Soybeans are used in the production of milk, edible oil and animal feed. It’s high protein content and price makes it the best option in terms of treating malnutrition and would continue to expand the international market for the product which currently is estimated at US$40 billion.

Nigeria currently produces soybean worth $85 million in the international market and though most of the nation’s soybean is consumed locally where they are used in the production of soymilk and specially formulated foods to help malnourished infants and children, the international market for the product is growing and sustainable.

Soybean is an important source of high quality and inexpensive protein and oil. With an average protein content of 40% and oil content of 20%, soybean has the highest protein content of all food crops and is second only to groundnuts in terms of oil content amongst food legumes.

Because of it numerous uses, soya beans are in great demand and this opens an opportunity for interested investors to export the product.

The return on investment on the export of soya beans is estimated between 10%- 15%.

SUPPLYING MAIZE TO LOCAL INDUSTRIES IN NIGERIA; HOW VIABLE?

Nigerian agriculture is characterized by considerable regional and crop diversity. Analysis of this sector, particularly the food sub-sector, is fraught with serious data problems. However, the available statistics provide a broad overview of development in agriculture upon which we can make some broad generalizations about its role in economic development and structural change in Nigeria.

In the 1960s, the agricultural sector was the most important in terms of contributions to domestic production, employment and foreign exchange earnings. The situation remained almost the same three decades later with the exception that it is no longer the principal foreign exchange earner, a role now being played by oil.

The sector remained stagnant during the oil boom decade of the 1970s, and this accounted largely for the declining share of its contributions. The trend in the share of agriculture in the GDP shows a substantial variation and long-term decline from 60% in the early 1960s through 48.8% in the 1970s and 22.2% in the 1980s. Unstable and often inappropriate economic policies (of pricing, trade and exchange rate), the relative neglect of the sector and the negative impact of oil boom were also important factors responsible for the decline in its contributions.

On its diversity, Nigerian agriculture features tree and food crops, forestry, livestock and fisheries. In 1993 at 1984 constant factor cost, crops (the major source of food) accounted for about 30% of the Gross Domestic Products (GDP), livestock about 5%, forestry and wildlife about 1.3% and fisheries accounted 1.2%.

One of the food crops grown in Nigeria is Maize. Nigeria has an annual maize production in excess of 7 million metric tons and ranges as the ten largest producers in the world and Foraminifera Market Research seeks to expose the investment opportunity in the supply of the product to local industries in Nigeria through feasibility report.

Maize (Zea mays, L.) is a staple food of great socio-economic importance in the Sub-Saharan Africa of which Nigeria is inclusive with per capital kg/year of 40. Nigeria has an annual maize production in excess of 7 million metric tons. In terms of volume produced, maize is the third most important cereal grown in Nigeria after sorghum and millet.It comes after wheat and rice in terms of world importance.

The total land area planted to maize in Nigeria is above 2.5 million hectares with an estimated yield of about 1.4 metric tones per hectare.

However, the unfolding performance of maize can be attributed to the fact that, bulk of the country’s farm, over 90% is dependent on subsistence agriculture (small holder farmers) with rudimentary farm system, low capitalization and low yield per hectare. Moreover, price fluctuation, diseases and pest, poor storage facilities and efficiency of resource utilization are the identified problems of low maize production in Nigeria.

The situation highlighted above has lead to a deficit in supply of maize which current stands at about 8.5 million tones annually to the 7 million tones being supplied annually. This is a seller’s market and an opportunity for savvy investors to take position.

The return on investment on the trading of maize is estimated between 10%- 15%.

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

The metals sector in Nigeria today is yet to reach its full potential particularly in the development and consumption of key metallic products as iron, tantalite, copper, aluminium, tin, lead, zinc etc. and in exploitation of key noble metals such as gold and silver. With the nation’s capacity, potential and resource base, all these products can readily be developed and used to jumpstart the rapid industrialization and economic growth of the economy.

The new metals policy is predicated upon the need to develop a vibrant metals sector where government will play the role of administrator-regulator with the private sector as owner-operator and would enable Nigeria become a major regional and global producer of mineral products.

One of such minerals that can be developed for the growth of the country is tantalite. 14,223 tonnes of which are found in Plateau State; is used in forming alloys that are useful in nuclear, aerospace , gas turbine engineering and Foraminifera Market Research seeks to expose the investment opportunity in the export of the product through this feasibility report.

Coltan {also columbite-tantalite and known industrially as tantalite} is a dull black metallic ore from which the elements niobium and tantalum are extracted. The niobium-dominated mineral is columbite hence the “col” half of the term. The mineral concentrates dominated by tantalum are referred to as tantalite.

Tantalite forms a series with the mineral columbite. In fact the two are often grouped together as a semi-singular mineral call columbite-tantalite in many mineral guides.

Tantalite is the most widespread tantalum mineral and makes for an important ore of the industrially useful metal. They are used in the production of tantalum based capacitors and alloys for strength and higher melting point, in glass to increase the index of refraction and in surgical steel as it is non – reactive and non-irritating to body tissue.

Tantalite’s greatest difference from columbite is it’s much greater specific gravity 8.0+ compared to columbite’s 5.2.

Large deposits of Tantalite are known to occur in Nasarawa, Gombe and Kogi States as well as the Federal Capital Territory. The deposits are both alluvial and primary in the numerous pegmatite bodies that infest these areas.

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