Nigeria is blessed with standard farms that produce and export these products to the outside world. Most of the different vendors at the fair came together to share the health benefits of natural organic lifestyle. Almost all the exhibitors we have at the fair have their products proudly made in Nigeria ranging from organic farm produce, natural beauty products, natural supplements and natural food products,” she added.
