Nigeria’s consumption could rise to $1.4trn a year by 2030, at an average annual increase of 8%, according to McKinsey Global Institute report. This rise in consumption will likely be driven by higher income levels, significantly expanding the middle-income bracket.
Against this backdrop, Food Nigeria, organised by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions will hold from 18 -20 May 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria at the Eko Convention Centre. The event will provide a platform for international and regional food and beverage companies to network and cultivate business ties in Africa’s largest economy, Nigeria.
