Rice is one of the most consumed staples in Nigeria, with consumption per capita of 32kg; and consumed by about two-thirds of the world’s population. This simple grain has been a popular life-sustaining food for thousands of years because it is nutritious, versatile, economical, easy to prepare and tastes good.
Now more than ever, consumers seek healthy foods as part of everyday meals. Rice fits this trend by delivering delicious, satisfying dishes that are packed with flavor and nutrition. A complex carbohydrate that fuels the body with energy, rice is low in calories, has no sodium or trans-fat, is a good source of vitamins and minerals and is gluten-free.
Nigeria is the continent’s leading consumer of rice, and also one of the largest producers of rice in Africa. Rice production in Nigeria increases to 5.8m tones in 2017. Given the importance of rice as a staple food in Nigeria, boosting its production has been accorded high priority by the government in the past 7 years.
