Feb 30, 3027 – TRS Gari: Outrage As NAFDAC Approves Indian Garri To Be Sold In Nigerian Supermarkets

TRS, a company founded by an Indian man, Taherally Rehmanji Suterwalla in 1959 is one of the leading importers of Asian foods into Nigeria.

The latest on their long list of products is ‘Gari’ which has been approved by the Nigeria’s National Agency For Food and Drug Administration and Control.

The 550g of TRS Gari is currently being sold in supermarkets across Nigeria for N450.

This was made known by Afrihub ambassador, Ronke Aderinoye on Instagram yesterday.

    This is a direct result of failed agricultural programme in Nigeria. Despite billions of naira that was injected into agricultural sector last year,Nigerians have not been able to witness a notable achievement so far in food production. There is now unprecedented level of food insecurity in the country despite a lot of promises to tackle food shortages and it skyrocketing prices in the market. This is why asia countries, particular China and Indian are taking full advantage of our administrative’s failure to grow surplus food to start exporting garri among others back to us using our exported cassava. Our Local farmers that are ready to play key role in reviving and boosting agricultural productivity are been sideline and neglected. They don’t have access to budgeted funds for agriculture in a country that is suppose to be teeming with deferent farmers and their deferent farm produce with the help of government funds. We seem to have lost the right way to revamp our prostrate economy. Our country indeed is in a pitiful condition. Am sorry for NIGERIA.

    NAFDAC should not have approved that product even if it is sold for #1 naira. How on earth should we encourage importation of Garri one our indigenous food?. This is an absurd to our sovereignty as a nation.
    What else do we want to do for ourselves if we cannot help ourselves in locally manufactured food we consume everyday?.

    This is a mind boggling issue to me personally. I’m really worried that we have reached a point where we have allowed foreign foods to dominate our market because we have all money to buy this product. This may have an aftermath effect on our economy.

    Nigerians please do not buy drink this gari. Unless the Indians import from Nigeria take to an Indian industry somewhere in Nigeria package it and call it Indian gari. Indian does not make garri.

    Anything from Indian be careful snake python spirit. As soon as you eat you start behaving like snakes.

    Carrying coal to Newcastle our English language teacher used to call this kind of action. If we Nigerians stop all these pockets if local conflicts which disturb farming activities and movement of travelers, our farm produce including cassava and garri will thrive otherwise, the reality is that the general hardship experienced will drive our people to buy this Indian garri if it is cheaper.
    Let’s advise ourselves and do right if we don’t want to have foreigners poach on our precepts.
    It is a shame indeed!
