Why Package and Supply Foodstuffs?
Packing food stuffs in Nigeria is one business that is not saturated. We all know that these days women no longer stay at home, doing nothing to contribute to the needs of the family.
They are either working in offices or doing one business or the other to support their families financially. As such, they lack enough time to cook when they needed to and those that do cook often get exhausted and stressed up due to the work – load, that is why there is a need for supply of food -stuffs in offices.

How Lucrative is This Business?
Let me cite a good example, if I have job and I work from 7am to 5pm daily, I must leave my home as early as 6am to enable me get to my office before 7am, especially in Lagos where there is so much issues with traffic.
Now, if I have to go to work from Monday to Friday, it is obvious that I will not have the time to go to market to cook for my family. E
if I do, I will definitely be stressed up. But if I have someone that can supply food stuffs to me in my office or at home. I need not to worry about going to market after work.
I will gladly buy from the supplier and cook for my family when I get home. So you see, there are many people that need the services of suppliers of food stuffs in their offices.
Types of Food Stuffs to Package and Supply
Someone might ask what type of food stuffs can I supply? Right, you can supply any food stuff ranging from meat, fish, periwinkle, crabs, snail, melon, okra, onions, tomatoes, semolina, garri, foo-foo, vegetables etc.
To make your services unique, you can go the extra mile to clean up the stuffs you supply. Thereby making the buyer save time and energy. For instance, if you want to supply snails you will do well to remove them from the shells clean them up, wash them thoroughly and put them in takeaway packs.

The same goes for other products. I’m quite sure if you do that you will sell more than someone that supplies without cleaning his or her stuff.
On a final note, I advise you to take this business seriously, because you hardly see any-one doing this and if you do well, you will make it big.
I’m saying what I know. I had a colleague about 7 years ago; we worked together in a construction firm. She supplied things like crab, snails, fish, and meat.
She sourced for them, cleaned them up and put them in take away packs and you will be surprised to know that the stuffs sold like crazy.
One challenged she had was time because we worked 7am to 5:30 pm and 7am to 1pm on Saturdays and the only time she had to do her business was on Saturday afternoon and Sunday after church service.
She sourced for the products on Saturday afternoon cleaned them up, put them in take away packs, puts them in the refrigerator and brought them to the office and supplied them during lunch break. She also supplied to her church members in their homes after service and people in her vicinity.
Some might ask again, how do I do such a business if I don’t have a refrigerator? You can buy ice blocks to preserve your stuff.
My colleague that I used as a case study, was able to do what she did, even with the nature of her work, so you sure know that anyone that is not working will do better than her in this business.
