    Exports from Nigeria to other countries of the world is very lucrative and can build the country’s economy overnight. Why we are not exporting enough products from Nigeria to other countries is a mystery. I want to expose to you the top 20 items you can export from Nigerian and make dollars.

    Exports From Nigeria

    Ginger is one of the most traded spices in the world which Nigeria happens to be among the largest producers. Why we are not exporting ginger in large quantity is beyond me.

    2. Palm Kernel Oil
    Palm Kernel oil is the oil extracted from the pulp of palm fruit which is different from palm oil.

    3. Textiles and Garments
    This industry alone generates close to $32bn as revenue from export from Nigeria. It is also a fact that unlike other products that battles with high strict rules of tests, Nigeria’s textiles enjoy duty free passage into United States where it has the largest market in the world because of its unique designs, ethnic African designs and quality.
    4. Cocoa Butter
    This is the real sources of chocolates of all types. The fruits of Cocoa is used for the production of various skin care products, health products, and pharmaceutical products. The demand for Cocoa is very high in both America and UK and that is why cocoa farming is very essential in Nigeria.

    This is a clay-like solid substance gotten from the gallbladder of matured cow and oxen. The size could be as big as chicken egg. Gallstone is a hotcake for foreign pharmaceuticals because they use it for medical purposes.

    6. Rubber
    Nigeria has put in place proper Central Testing Laboratories to ensure that only certified products leave the country to Europe and America. Nigeria happens to be a significacubicoducer of Rubber in Africa. A cubit meter of fine quality rubber goes for between $400 and $600 presently because of the instability of dollar rate in the market.
    7. Sesame Seed
    This may sound a bit strange if you are not from the area where it is produced in the country. Sesame seed can be found in quantity in places like Benue and Jigawa states in Nigeria. This product ranks second to cocoa in terms of export volume and foreign exchange earnings. Nigeria is the 5th largest producer of this commodity and shipping it into foreign countries brings dollars exchange.
    8. Honey

    11. Yam Tubers
    Nigeria is presently the highest producers of yam. In 2009 alone, yam export accounted for about US$450 million exchange. But due to low quality, it is saddening to know that the country is not maximizing its export potentials of these products. So there is a need for prospective exporters of yam to foreign countries to adhere to quality regulations that are guarding the process. Yam farmers must take this into consideration and tap from this opportunity.
    12. Charcoal
    This is at the forefront of the international market. This product which is produced in good quantity in Nigeria with now perfected technology has about 50% ROI. Even an individual can own a charcoal production outfit and have exporters shipping it for him. A large market for charcoal exists in ASIA, EU, and the USA. A tone of this product goes for about $1000.
