“We are here to carry out one of NAFDAC’s mandate; to make sure that all foreign juices are removed from the market. We have given them a deadline from now to Dec. 31 to stop their sales and remove them from the shelves.

“But in order to ensure that these are totally removed, we have started mopping up all the juices all over the country. “By Dec. 31, we do not want to see any imported juice in Nigeria

  1. Great move!
    Please also get supermarkets to remove all imported "ready-to-eat" cooked foods like jollof rice, egusi soup, etc. Visit Park N' Shop, SPAR and Shoprite in Lagos - you'll see them all there.
