Shoprite to sell more made-in-Nigeria products

60 secs Minimum - 8 mins Maximum Read
Shoprite Nigeria has introduced 'Made-in-Nigeria' initiative through a

monthly meeting with local suppliers and manufacturers of products

aimed at increasing the number of local products it sells.



It said this would also strengthen existing relationships with

manufacturers of local products and identify new opportunities to

showcase their goods both in Nigeria and abroad.



The event held recently at Ikeja Mall was attended by local businesses

currently supplying products to Shoprite's stores nationwide as well

as those businesses looking to get more exposure for their products.



Shoprite Nigeria said it had grown its local offering over the years,

with over 80 percent of the goods sold in its supermarkets locally

sourced.



The push towards a majority local supply throughout its Nigeria

operation comes out of a need to meet the demand from its growing

customer base.



A statement quoted the Regional Manager, Shoprite Nigeria, Mr. Olufemi

Oke, as saying that with local suppliers being subjected to the same

stringent quality standards and targets expected of its international

suppliers, Shoprite's 'Made-in-Nigeria's initiative was timely.



He stated that the initiative was the boost that local suppliers

needed, adding that it would contribute towards growing the economy.



"The next 'Made-in-Nigeria' meet-up session will come up in April.

Producers, manufactures and the Small and Medium Enterprises could

connect with Shoprite Nigeria on Facebook and Twitter for more

details," he said.
