Against the backdrop of increased industrial activities in Nigeria, the trade fair specialists, fairtrade, are organising the second edition of agrofood & plastprintpack Nigeria.

Nigeria’s growing packaging, printing and plastics sectors continue to attract foreign suppliers, which are importing machinery and technology into the region. Between 2010 and 2014, Nigerian imports of packaging technology increased by an annual growth rate of 24 per cent to €201 million. Printing technology imports went up by 45 per cent to €75 million, while plastics technology imports grew by 13 per cent.
