Nigeria: Food and Agricultural Import Regulations and Standards Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   NI2022-0003

As global food and agricultural trade continues to integrate, Nigeria has formulated structures, strategies, laws, and food control systems including regulatory authorities to enhance public health, food safety and international trade. The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) plays key role in promoting science-based food standards. The international accreditation of the agency’s two major laboratories in recent years has reasonably boosted its capacity to enforce Nigeria’s food safety regulations. However, the Covid-19 pandemic highlighted vulnerabilities in Nigeria’s food system.
