About the session

The global market for organic foods and other products has grown to $227.2 billion in 2021 and is forecasted to climb further to $437.4 billion by 2026. With the sector thriving globally it’s not encouraging that Nigeria is still dependent on agrochemicals for food production. The unrestrained use of these chemicals contributes to deformity in infants and compromises the integrity of food quality as foodstuff now suffers a reduced shelf life. Nigeria also relies on imports to meet its organic produce need.
The market is ripe for more Nigerian agric entrepreneurs to pitch their tent and add their quota to the global success of the organic farming niche and the nutrition and lifestyle management value chain in general.
In this session, nutrition and lifestyle experts will dig deep into their wealth of experience and provide the audience with detailed contexts on the best practices/strategies to employ and how to overcome the challenges faced in the nutrition and lifestyle value chain.
