COMPANY PROFILE AND HISTORY

Company Profile

In the beginning, there was a dream, nurtured by a vision that saw Nigeria as the future to real economic development in Africa. Being abundantly blessed with agricultural products and enormous human and material resources, the country needed an opportunity to showcase its strength and potentials in the area of food production as a major export base aside from its major economic resource- the liquid black gold. As a result of the long-term focus, persistent belief and faith invested in the country and its potentials by the pioneering founders of the company and willing investors based in the United Kingdom, Vital Products Ltd was born.
