“Currently, Nigeria spends $1.5 billion annually on importing dairy products due to a production deficit. Nigerians consume an average of 1.6 billion litres of milk and its products, but domestic production is insufficient to meet this demand.”

Shettima highlighted significant investments by local and international firms such as FrieslandCampina WAMCO and Danone’s Fan Milk.

“These companies have initiated extensive backward integration projects to boost local milk production and foster a strong market for dairy products, aiming to reduce imports and enhance food and nutritional security.

“The Federal Government will continue to support such efforts by sustaining an enabling environment for capital inflow and technology transfer,” he added
