NAFDAC lists top 10 rejected Nigerian goods abroad

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has released a list of 10 goods rejected abroad. 


Speaking at the 3rd CHINET Aviacargo conference in Lagos titled “Unlocking the Logistics Barrier to Improving Agro Exports Products”, Deputy Director of NAFDAC’s Export Division, Ports Inspection Directorate, Sanwo-Olu O.A said some of the commonly rejected export food commodities from Nigeria from 2018 till date include sesame, beans, melon seeds, peanut and smoked fish/fish meal, ginger, spices paper, hibiscus flower, palm oil and ogbono.


Sanwo-Olu blamed the rejection on non-adherence to standardised clearance procedures by stakeholders, freight forwarders, cargo handlers, airlines/carriers, regulatory agencies, as well as poor inter-agency collaboration, amongst others.


She urged stakeholders to ensure that export trade meets the requirements of the country’s trading partner, in terms of quality, standards and quantity as trade increases.
