naijabrandchickAM REALLY ANGRY 😳😳😳 HOW CAN NAFDAC APPROVE TRS GARI?
PLEASE CAN WE DISCUSS THIS ...
REPOSTED FROM @GREENGRILLHOUSE
WHY ?? In heavens name are we allowing products like these into this country Sabo da Allah. I saw this in a supermarket and I couldn't believe it. How can we grow this freaking naira with stuff like this??? Simple NAFDAC no u will wait till eternity & go bankrupt in d process. Grow our businesses & stop importing Gari FGN.
- thebabylounge@iam_obinnavalentine I totally understand and in more ways than one identify with your frustrations and exasperation. However, I am one of those who still believes Nigeria is a fertile ground rife with opportunities where viable business ideas can thrive INSPITE of the very hard (economic) environment. We ONLY need to flip situations such as this ("Gari debacle") and make it work in our favour. We've always been a very RESILIENT species; let's dig in our heels one more time and REFUSE to be deterred. Like @afrodagg & @olusholapacheco noted, this may just be a call to go back to the drawing board and have a second look at our packaging AND content (this applies to both service & products businesses). Let's not kid ourselves, if we want play in global markets, we cannot aim below WORLD-CLASS ( quality). The benchmarks are there to measure against, let's look for the ones in the spaces we operate. We want to get to the point when consumers are DRAWN to purchase our goods & services by QUALITY. Only to realise long after consumption, "Oh my goodness! This is made in Nigeria??? Unbelievable!" This is the kind of feedback I want to get every single time a prospect encounters my brand. OLA OLA yam flour is a perfect case-in-point for me...a PROUDLY NIGERIAN BRAND..I search it out in the stores here and the African stores in the U.S. Consistent QUALITY over the years.
- zuriellespot@iam_obinnavalentine very very true,plus we as Nigerians are our own problems. People will rather buy imported products than made in Nigeria products. @naijabrandchick what if,just what if this TRS garish is owned by a Nigerian who was frustrated out of the country and was given the franchise to make a product Nigerians would buy?? Just what if????
- iteachyoumakeup.tvImagine when we have ijebu, yellow and all kinds
- thebabyloungeAnd recently Ugu Tortilla chips. I swell with (patriotic) pride when I see these products in the aisles
- afrodagg@thebabylounge I second that. ...
- woskelimited@zuriellespot..i agree with u..100%..mayb dat garri was imported by a nigerian who must hv tried producing locally.i dnt blame him.hw did china get to where they are today? In 70s,90s,china shut their borders nd stopped importation by force.they looked inward nd started producing locally, with time,they opened their borders nd pple started importing from taiwan first b4 china followed.we nid dat in nigeria.shut all borders nd let us consume wat we produce nd produce excess for export.i bet u,all dis taste for foreign product will stop.buh its gonna be hard..d country has no vision..no direction..
- thewarehouse.ngSo sad!
- natively_nourishedJust shaking my head for this country. Where are we headed?
- dishesbykemmsI have been in the food production, distribution, retail and wholesale in the UK for many years and I am quite familiar with brands like these. Brands are owned by Asians and production is boosted by Nigerians in Nigeria and abroad. Consistently. Asians have sat on the throne of Nigerian food for yonks because we don't have the tenacity and patience to grow our brands. A lot of us are so greedy and sell our birthright for a bowl of porridge as it were. Products like these go out of our shores by the millions on a daily basis and have been doing so for over 2 decades. Seeing them on a shelf in Nigeria is the aftermath of a tornado that has been brewing for ages.
- dogomoneyThis Gari has been available in Nigeria for a long time ..it's not our kind of Gari but for Indians and their own Gari based recipes ..Nigerians can't even eat that Gari they won't like the taste
- eshoglamourHere i am,fighting tooth and nail each time i come home or find a friend coming home,,to get the best garri to take back with me😰😢and seeing NIGERIANS actually stock this in thier stores to sell😢i couldnt leave a comment b4..its only a post to some ..but it brought emotions with it for me
- oziomaironkweIt's crazy!
- dariothurston@francisoyih I am done. No hope.
- francisoyihLol. @dariothurston it's funny considering ijebu garri is still the very best.
- deezahskincareLike seriously, Asia garri in Nigeria.. how are we supposed to grow d naira???
- pdbraide@dishesbykemms exactly. Nigerians do not even dominate the sales of their own foodstuff in England. Who is to blame? Asians invest in African foodstuff stores while we wait for govt
- instapicsiloveI hope you guys are happy now that a great Indian shop has been raided where we were getting cheap tumeric, coriander, fenugreek,fennel, almonds and co..... The next thing Nigerians will start packaging these things for 5000 naira while we were getting them from the Indians at less than 500naira
- cute_ebukaImagine!! Naija will continue to fall if we don't stand up and fight for ourselves.
- awkwardbeautyIjebu gari is the best hands down.
