I am looking at exporting super market groceries from the Uk to Nigeria.

Question posted by uche Odunukwe, on behalf of Buko Exports UK. in TW5

I need list of whole sellers or suppliers in the UK who can give me a proforma invoice.
What other goods apart from the above that are made here that I can export to Nigeria?

Dear Ucha,

Thank you for your question.

I think that your first point of contact should be the Commercial team in the British Deputy High Commission in Lagos. They can help you identify which goods can be exported into Nigeria and assist you in finding wholesellers. Rukayat Lawal covers the retail sector. Her email address is Rukayat.Lawal@fco.gov.uk

Can I also suggest that you take a look at this list of prohibited imports from the Nigeria Customs website - https://www.customs.gov.ng/ProhibitionList/import.php

Hope that you find this useful.
