Let’s hear what the exhibitors said …


  • With a population of more than 200 million, most of them younger than 25, Nigeria is of high importance for Windmoeller & Hoelscher. The need of a sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging is an important factor all over West Africa.

    After Covid-19 the need of real fairs is constantly coming back into the mind of our customers. We met most of our prime customers during our stay and we made some new contacts.

  • Nigeria is a growing market for the beverage industry and presents great opportunities for beverage industry equipment suppliers and manufacturers alike.

    We met the majority of SME players and collaborators in the fair. The trade show was managed very well, also security and health matters were well adressed.

    Alexander Fuchs
    Managing Director - KHS Nigeria Ltd

  • Nigeria is the fastest growing market in Africa with a huge potential for auxiliary labelling solutions. At the show we met food processors and farmers in need of our products suitable to perform under rough working conditions.

    Our target at the show is to generate qualified leads for our local partner in order to get the initial business volume growing as fast as possible. We are new to the Nigerian market but confident that this exhibition is very supportive for a successful start in Nigeria.   

    Lars Klöhn
    Head of Sales - KD Hermann

  • Let me begin by stating the obvious: The food industry and everything that caters to it continous to hold great potential in Nigeria, whether we think of developing the domestic market or exports of agricultural products and processing foods. That is why you are all here, and that was the right decision. Africa's biggest economy and most populous country with a very sizeable middle class and, pardon the pun, a growing appetite for high quality products offers good business opportunites that cannot be ignored. And it has a lot of well-educated, creative and business-savvy entrepreneurial talent.

    Nigeria is not an easy environment to do business. But: Yes it remains a country of great economic opportunity, in spite of all the odds. Some German companies invested in Nigeria have been here for a long time. They might have weathered a few crises, but they are still here primarily because they have done well. Let us take some encouragement from their example.

    I wish all of you a very successful and stimulating days at agrofood & plastprintpack Nigeria here in Lagos.
