The main reason why a business visit to Nigeria was conducted was to try and establish an in-depth understanding of the current situation and the needs of the local poultry-feed production businessmen and investors. The visit was also meant to provide local investors with more opportunities and improved technology which they can use to expand their own poultry animal-feed plant.
Meat Consumption Trend in Nigeria
Consumption of different types of meat in the African market is growing bigger and bigger as time goes by and this is the same in Nigeria. The main commercial livestock products found in Nigeria are poultry, eggs, pork, milk, and mutton.
According to data collected in different parts of Nigeria, many regions have the geographical advantage to develop the poultry industry. For instance, Lagos, a vital port city for Nigeria has a strong spending power and economy. lbadan, a city that is close to the Latin America is driven by economy and numerous service industries. It also acts as the main gateway for cities found north of Lagos. The gas and oil industry in the south-eastern region is relatively developed hence its economy and spending power are also strong. The northern region of Nigeria is popular with farming and its closeness to grain-producing regions of agriculture. (Feed Mill Projects: 2TPH Poultry Feed Manufacturing Plant in Uganda)

Local Market Visiting
Feed, Egg and Meat Prices in Nigeria
From our visit and experience in Nigeria, it is important that we talk about the price of Feed, Meat, and Egg in Nigeria market.
The Muslim community in Nigeria accounts for about 40 percent of the whole population hence chicken meat is in large demand as it doesn't have any religious taboos attached to it. The consumption of meat in Nigeria is hugely influenced by Western countries and people pay attention to the nutrition content of ingredients in meat products.
Comparison of the Main Meat Price
It should be noted that in Nigeria, broilers require feed and beef cattle are normally grazed in the fields hence chicken meat is more expensive and it also faces a huge supply gap. The price ratio of beef, chicken and pork meat (whether frozen or chilled) in a supermarket is generally 150: 100: 70. Data from Nigeria's Animal Husbandry and the Animal Husbandry-Bureau of Ministry of Agriculture indicates that an ex-factory egg price is between 600 to 800 Naira for 30 eggs.
