Kerrygold in Africa
Ireland has a history of exporting dairy products to Africa and in 2015 Ornua opened a new Kerrygold packing factory in Nigeria.
The facility was set up to provide a new route to market for Irish powdered milk, meaning the product could be exported to Nigeria from Ireland and then packaged and marketed there under the Kerrygold brand.
The facility was opened in Lagos, one of the largest cities in Nigeria, by the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine at the time, Simon Coveney, while on a trade mission to the country.
As part of a trade mission to Africa last November by the Department of Agriculture and Bord Bia the potential for Irish dairy products in the Algerian market was explored.
The north African state has a population of 40m people and is already an attractive market for Irish agri-food exporters, with exports reaching €40m in 2015.
