The demand for food world wide is very high which means the return on investment in agriculture and food business will also be high.

Demand for Food
Human beings must eat food to stay alive, without food we will all die of starvation.
A country like Nigeria must be able to provide sufficient food for its vast population of about 140million people, if not Nigerians will die of starvation.
Nigeria is blessed with arable farm lands of which considerable amount of farm activities take place, but most of the food items cultivated by farmers end up been destroyed after harvest.
The reasons for these losses in farm out put are due to the bad road network in rural areas and poor preservation/storage methods used by farmers.
Due to the above mentioned challenges, most farmers in Nigeria finds it difficult to convey their produce to markets in major cities & towns where they can sell them at a reasonable price.
But whether farm produce are lost or not the vast majority people living in the cities who are not farmers must eat food to survive.
Here is the opportunity you need to make money.

Food stuff business is a lucrative any time any day because people will never stop to eat food.
