NIGERIA READY TO EXPORT ANOTHER CONSIGNMENT OF YAM TO UK AND USA

Professor Simon Irtwang, Chairman, Technical Committee on Yam Export, some days ago, said yam exporters were finalizing processes to export another consignment of yam in the first quarter.

Irtwang told newsmen in Lagos that the consignment would also be for the United Kingdom and United States of America. According to him, the committee has been touring major yam markets, especially in the South-West, to inspect the quality of yams there.

“Not all species of yam are good for export. So, yam farmers and traders need to know the species that are good for export. They also need to know how to select, store and preserve them to increase their freshness and ability to stay long without decaying. We also have to let yam farmers know the seed yams they will plant that will be good for export,’’ he said.

Irtwang said that the second export would not attract publicity as the flag-off had already been celebrated in 2017. He said that the exporters and the technical committee were also mindful of the Export Prohibition Act.

The chairman said that until the act was repealed the committee and yam exporters would carry out the export quietly. He said the committee was in touch with the companies that produced cartons for packaging the yams and the companies that received them abroad.

Irtwang said that having learnt from the challenges of the first consignment, the committee was hopeful that the second one would achieve 100 per cent success. It could be recalled that the Federal Government flagged off yam export to the UK and USA in July 2017. (Guardian)

Have you heard this? Many Nigerian exporters have been defrauded of huge amount of money in the process of exporting commodities to foreign countries. Do you know why? They were not trained on export operations, management, documentations and the best methods of payment in export trade. This is terrible!!! Nigerians cannot continue to lose money to foreigners in the course of export business. Exporters, why don’t you get a practical manual that teaches the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers. It teaches export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade? It is a contemporary step-by-step guide to export trade. It tells all the contemporary dynamics in export trade. To get it, click on the link below:
