PROCEDURE FOR NON-OIL EXPORT PRE-INSPECTION BY COBALT

The following procedures apply in respect of Non-Oil Exports from Nigeria

1.The Federal Government of Nigeria has appointed Cobalt International Services Ltd as Pre-Shipment Inspection Agents (PIA) for Non-Oil Commodity Exports from Nigeria.

2.For those undertaking Non-Oil Commodity Exports, the procedures for arranging inspections are straightforward, and the following steps are provided for ease of reference.

3.The Exporter should collect a NIGERIAN EXPORT PROCEEDS FORM (NXP Form) from their Bank, then complete and return the Form to their Bank for registration. The Exporter should photocopy the NXP form so that it may be referred to in any correspondence.

4.The Nigerian Export Supervision Scheme (NESS) Administrative charge should then be paid to a Designated Bank, for which a receipt will be issued.

8.A period of 10 days notice should be given to Cobalt International prior to the proposed date of inspection.

Foreign Charcoal Buyers Dupe Nigerian Exporters

Read this extract from Cargo Defense Fund....

More Nigerians are falling victims of fraudulent practices of foreign buyers in the international charcoal business, the Cargo Defence Fund (CDF) has reported.
Miss Azuka Ogo, the Secretary of the Fund, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) last week in Lagos.
Ogo said that cases of fraudulent activities received by the CDF had risen from 27 to 32.
 She alleged that outstanding claims owed Nigerian charcoal exporters amounted to more than N97.4 million, excluding interests and damages.
Ogo cautioned Nigerian exporters not to accept hook, line and sinker information received from foreigners who tended to woo them at seminars on international trade.
 She said that the major problem was that Nigerians usually exported their commodities on ``open account’’.
``Open account’’ means trading without a letter of credit which assures the seller of money available for payment by the buyer’s bank.
Ogo said that the Fund needed to seek mediated resolution in line with the best practises in contemporary business relationship to reverse the trend.
 She said that the CDF was ready to take legal action against foreigners who were unwilling to negotiate or were out-rightly fraudulent.
``We request all those involved in this unfair trade to conduct proper due diligence check on their partners including the company’s credit rating before entering into any contract,`` Ogo said.
 The scribe, had on Dec. 21, 2011, alleged at a news conference in Lagos that massive frauds were being perpetrated against Nigerian exporters by charcoal buyers from European countries.
The Fund named the perpetrators as business partners from Germany, Poland Spain and Netherland....

The above problem was as a result of getting wrong contract. Most exporters do not investigate their buyers before entering into agreements and some do not know how to carry out their investigation.

At TOSFAT Concepts, we get reliable buyers for exporters and we can also assist you in investigating a buyer if you already have a contract at hand for a reasonable service charges.

START PREPARING TO MAKE CASH!CASHEW NUTS SEASON IS NEAR AGAIN

   It's Cashew Nut Season. Starting from February next year. If you remove the first four words in CASHEW it reads CASH. So,Prepare ahead to make some CASH exporting CASHEW NUTS. Now, let me give you some information on Cashew Nuts. Description: Cashew (Anacardium Occidentale L.) is a tree crop of considerable economic importance to Nigeria and other tropical countries. Apart from being a source of useful products and byproducts for food, medicinal and industrial applications, cashew gives also a useful shade, while ornamental and alley trees are suitable for the control of soil erosion, particularly for the protection of watersheds and dams.

Harvest: Cashew nut setting begins in the middle of dry season, while harvesting takes place mainly in February or March. The entire harvest period occupies about 16 weeks. In the Eastern and Western parts of the country, where quality cashew nuts are grown, nuts are allowed to drop to the ground before they are collected. This practice ensures that only ripe nuts are collected. Nuts normally fall to the ground with their apples attached; the two are normally separated with a twisting action during collection. The remnants of the apple flash adhering to the nuts are removed with a sharp knife. After picking, the nuts are dried in the sun for 2 to 3 days, to reduce their moisture content to about 12 %. Properly dried nuts are packed in jute bags and can be kept for 6 to 10 months, if stored in suitable condition.

Locations: Major cashew growing areas in Nigeria are, by order of importance: Enugu, Abia, Imo, Anambra, Ebonyi and Cross River States in the eastern part of the country; Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti and Ogun States in the Western part, as well as Kwara, Kogi, Nassarawa, Benue, Taraba, Niger and FCT in the Middle Belt and also Sokoto and Kebbi States in the North West part of the country. The majority of export quality nuts come from the Western and Eastern parts of the country.

Specification: According to SGS (quality inspectors), the standard for raw cashew nuts, unshelled, is specified as follows:
i. Nut count 180-200 per kg
ii. Moisture content 8-10% max
iii. Defective nuts 15% max
iv. Float Rate 18% max
v. Admixture 0.25% max
vi. Foreign matter 0.25% max
vii. KoR, or shelling out-turn 48-50 Ibs/bag
(Obiazu, P. C.,(2000) ‘Quality Requirements for Nigeria Agricultural Products’. Unpublished Seminar Paper.)

Uses: The cashew nut is a popular snack, and its rich flavor means that it is often eaten on its own, lightly salted or sugared. In addition to this, cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL), a by-product of processing cashew, is mostly composed of anacardic acids. These acids have been used effectively against tooth abscesses due to their lethality to bacteria.

Export market: The major buyers of cashew nut from Nigeria are mainly India and Singapore. Smaller percentage goes to Europe.

SPECIAL REPORT ON EXPORTATION OF SHEANUT


Description:. Shea nuts are primarily grown in West and Central Africa in the semi-arid Sahel,referred to by traders as the "Shea Belt". Vitellaria paradoxa and Vitellaria nilotica are the two main varieties. Vitellaria paradoxa is exported in the largest volume and grows throughout the West African region.Vitellaria nilotica is produced primarily in northern Uganda and southern Sudan.

Harvest: Shea nut trees grow widely and naturally in West Africa. They only begin to bear fruit after about 20 years and do not reach maturity for 45 years. They may continue to produce nuts for up to 200 years after reaching maturity.  The nuts, which are embedded in a soft fruit, fall to the ground during the harvesting period (typically June through August). They are then buried in pits which cause the pulp to ferment and disintegrate and produce enough heat to prevent germination. The nuts are dried for a few days and are later shelled and winnowed, usually by hand. The kernels are dried further to reduce moisture content from about 40 percent to about 7 percent.

Locations: Sheanut grows in the wild across the Sudan-Sahelian region of Africa. The major producing countries are: Nigeria, Togo, Benin, Ghana, Uganda, Mali, Burkina Faso and Central African Republic. Nigeria is currently the leading producer of Sheanut in the world and in 2004 Nigeria's production of the commodity was 414,000 metric tonnes with export value of US$61.04 million (Source: FAO).  Shea nut is grown in Kwara, Kogi, Niger, Oyo and Ogun state. It can also be found in a number of the northern states of Nigeria.

Specifications: Individual companies specify their own quality standards for purchases of shea nuts. The following is a benchmark for the composition of the shea nut required for import:

Features
Percentage
Free Fatty Acids (FFA)
less than or equal to 6%
Moisture Content
less than or equal to 10%
Oil Content
greater than or equal to 45%
Latex
4-10%
Impurity
0-2%

The oil content is the most crucial element of the shea nut as that component is an important ingredient in the composition of the butter that goes into Cocoa Butter Equivalents and other by-products. If the oil content is higher and the FFA and moisture content is lower, then the exporter will receive a price premium.

Uses: Shea nuts are mainly use in the production of Shea Butter. Therefore all the uses of shea nuts are invariably embedded in the economic importance of Shea Butter.

Export market: A few companies based in Europe control the import market for shea nuts. Their main clients are chocolate manufacturers as the shea nut by-products are among the principal ingredients in cocoa butter equivalents (CBEs). Major destinations for Nigeria's Sheanut are the EU and Japan. Major European importing companies are primarily based in Denmark, Sweden and the UK.
