9 Foodstuff Business That Sales Faster in Nigeria

Raw food business

The raw food business has been in existence for a long time. This form of business entails getting the raw food from the farmer and selling it to customers depending on their budget. The most popular raw foods are local rice, beans, corn, groundnuts, and so on…

In most cases, raw food is cash crops and not perishable. Some can stay for a long time. You can use an open bowl to put your food in it.

Fast food business

One of the fastest-growing food business in the country is the fast-food business. Many are busy and don’t have the time to cook. Again they want to get fast food that they’ll eat to satisfy their hunger.

However, due to the increase in the number of fast-food businesses, the competition is high. To stand out, you’ll need to develop unique cuisines that will attract more customers or specialize in one aspect.

Bakery business

There’s hardly a town that bread is not popular. The food can be eaten all day, but it’s more consumed in the morning. The bakery business can move faster irrespective of the competition and you can have suppliers easily.
Even at that, you’ll need to make your bread unique to continue to increase your customer base.

Tea shop

The tea shop can be another fast-moving food business in Nigeria. Most of the time, you’ll need to make it like a take away because people will like to take it as they move to the office.

Instant noodles joint

In the last five years, I never thought this will be a business that’ll thrive but I was wrong. The indomie joint as it’s popularly called is now a food business that’s booming and it’ll continue.
But like other businesses, you’ll need to create other flavors. Variety is what will continue to bring in the customers continuously.

Raw foodstuff dealer

Raw food dealership is a goldmine if you have the capital, the warehouse, and knows the business. This is a food business where you travel to farmers’ markets especially during the market day to purchase raw food in larger quantities.

Most of these dealers sell to sub-dealers and sometimes to companies who’re looking for raw food to create other products.

Vegetable/fruit food joint

This is a perishable foodstuff business and among the things, we cannot do without when cooking our food on a daily basis. These vegetables and fruits are tomatoes, carrots, pepper, and so on. With advocates for organic foods, the vegetables and fruits demand are increasing by the day.

Meat joint/abattoir

Meat is a staple food for all people irrespective of the town or location. This business is a fast-moving one.

Local food joint

People love local food be the one that can provide it for you. Local food is food that’ll continue to be in demand. You’ll need to carve a niche for yourself. Find the one that you can best provide for your customers and you’ll be surprised as the number you’ll get.
