Key Market Issues
The 2002 ban on imported finished juice products in Nigeria still means juice remains a highly niche product. However, as a result, there has been increased inward investment, with local and international suppliers backing domestic juice producers.

Restricted or absent power supplies are affecting the beverage world especially. With the seasonal climate in Nigeria causing an increase in the demand for chilled and cold drinks, a consistent source of power will increase consumption.
