Nigerian Export Promotion Council, NEPC, on Saturday, noted that poor packaging and labelling of goods produced in Nigeria was the reason some countries banned their importation.

According to reports from Today, Executive Director of NEPC, Mr. Olusegun Awolowo, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, at a one-day export workshop organised by the South-South Regional Office of the council, said that several countries had banned Nigerian products because of poor packaging.

Awolowo said that export of Nigerian products was also a challenge as a result of poor packaging.

Speaking through the Regional Coordinator of NEPC, Mr. Mike Nworgu, Awolowo said that NEPC was taking all necessary steps to ensure that goods produced in Nigerian were properly packaged to allow for easy export.

He said: “Part of the strategies is to ensure suitable packaging and labelling of productis. Sadly, the importance of packaging and labelling are sometimes subverted, leading to export rejects and outright ban of Nigerian products in some instances.”
