Foodstuff Business by funso77(m): 10:37am On Jan 09, 2018
Dear Nairalander,

One of the things am passionate about this year is starting a foodstuff business but I do not have an experience of how one can source for foodstuffs on the cheap and customers to supply to on a regular and steady basis.

Please if you do have an idea or experience about this business, do share here so others can also learn. Am starting on rather low key with a small investment and hope to grow.

Let us all learn from you

Where is your location? What type of foodstuffs do you intend to source for?
Re: Foodstuff Business by funso77(m): 2:49pm On Jan 09, 2018
Am presently resident in Abuja. Basically major foodstuffs like Beans, Yams, Corn, Onions, Palm Oil and so on. Garri. Sourcing cheaply and selling with little or more profit

You want an idea and suddenly, everyone want it. With little research am sure you will know where to source for cheap food in Abuja. If you're the type that eat food, it won't be difficult to know food business. Don't tell me you can't start with 10k unless you don't want to do it.

Check the below market in Abuja and thank me later.

1: Karimo market: It is around that kado side: that is you can ask take kado area to get there or just ask questions and hopefully people will direct you/. It is a Tuesday and Friday market but people come more on Tuesdays

2: Kado fish market: As the name says, it's a fish market but they sell other things like chicken, turkey, shrimps, isam/perinwinkle, catfish etc. and at very cheap prices that is if you shine your eyes o.

3: Fruit market in maraba: it's called fruits market because they sell all things fruits and vegetables at cheap prices. you can buy your tomatoes, pepper, onions in baskets, carrots, spring onions etc and there you can do sharing, so you don't need to buy one whole basket. Just give some women 20 naira and they will share your part for you.

4: Suleja market: This market is very far o but if you still want, you can give it a try but i don't really recommend it cause of the distance.

5: Kabusa Market: this one is located around the Lokogoma axis of Abuja and it's a Saturday market.

6: Goza market: I hope i pronounced it well...This market is after kuje but before airport. The market day is on Fridays. Things are very cheap there but when you go in the evening, people say things are more cheaper because the sellers just want to sell their things off and return back to their villages.

Deidei market: This located in dei dei area of Abuja after kubwa if you are taking the high way, and it's just like fruit market. you can buy tomatoes, pepper, onions in baskets too and at a very cheap rate. I don't think it has a market day or time. just that going early makes you buy cheaper cause you are not in a hurry to do other things.

For fruits most Mallams you see selling from wuse,gwarimpa and down to kubwa buy them from Zuba market. The market is behind that Zenith Bank in Zuba.. you can get plantain there too. Zuba Yam market is not far from there too.

For grains.. you can check madalla market.. the main market day there is every Thursday.

For Rice, sachet tomatoes and other packed items/food ingredients. Suleja should serve.

For Fish both fresh, smoked iced and frozen fish, chicken, Turkey etc Kado fish market should serve.

I believe with time you can phone numbers of suppliers to start bringing them as you progress.
