A logistics firm, IMGS, said it is ready to empower local enterprises and farmers looking to export agricultural products to reduce agro exports rejection.
IMGS is an official World Food Programme (WFP) appointed bagging/discharging contractors for select food aid shipments worldwide.
The European Union (EU) rejected some 25 produce from the country, including cocoa, sesame seeds, melon seeds, dried fish and meat between 2015 and 2016.
Its Senior Operations Executive, Jacob Monsy, said the firm is ready to enhance opportunities for Nigerian agriculture products to access the international market. This is because Nigerian exporters continue to face challenges, especially with regard to quality and competition with suppliers from other countries.
The export market has its own challenges and requires improvements at several stages of the production process, notably in the field, technical systems, packaging, machinery, and product certification.
