NEPC Sensitizes Non-Oil Exporters on Opportunities in Europe
…Partners FOB Global Logistics to ship out 30 tons of fresh fruits, vegetables, sliced Ugu, water leaf, bitter leaf, Garlic and Ginger, sweet potatoes, Oha, ewedu and yams among others.
Nigerian Export Promotion Council, (NEPC), has concluded a one -day sensitisation exercise for non-oil exporters to prepare them to explore multi million naira opportunities in the European market.
The exercise was in collaboration with Free On Board Global Logistics (FOB Global), a cargo logistics company that serves the oil/gas sector in Nigeria.
They provide customs clearance, haulage services, warehousing, freight charges collect services and cargo door to door delivery across Nigeria.
FOB Global Logistics is the go-to-global supply chain specialist for companies across all economic value chains in Nigeria.
Representing the executive director/CEO, (NEPC) Mr. Olusegun Awolowo, the south west regional coordinator, Mr. Samuel Oyeyipo, observed that non- oil exporters are been sensitised to maximise the multi million Naira purchase order from Europe.
Under the arrangement, the FOB Global Logistics will ship out fresh fruits and vegetables of about 30 tons per week in sliced Ugu, water leaf, bitter leaf, Garlic and Ginger, sweet potatoes, Oha, ewedu and yams among others.
“The programme is in line with NEPC’s vision on zero oil policy to promote the export of non-oil commodities in Nigeria.
So, we encourage vegetables and fresh fruit exporters to ensure that their products are covered with the phytosanitary certificate issued by the Nigerian Agricultural Quarantine Service (NAQS) to avoid rejection of their products at the terminal market”.
