Industrial Shea Processing

The development of an industrial-sized Shea processing facility in Kudu is a strategic move.

The average unit price of Shea butter is NGN476.07K per kilogram, with an average annual income of NGN439,650.37K.

The state is expected to earn substantial foreign exchange from the export of Shea nuts and their derivatives due to high international demand.

This demand is driven by the use of Shea butter as a substitute for Cocoa Butter Equivalent (CBE).

Western European industries represent the primary market for CBE, with additional market growth attributed to new entrants from Eastern Europe, Russia, Brazil, and Oceania.
