For instance, the price you get a basket of kola nut in Ondo state is quite different from what you would get it in mile 12 market in Lagos. In fact, the differences may be N60,000 as against the N12,000 for the same quantity of 75 kg of kola nuts in local markets.
One thing that is assured is that any how you retail it in Nigeria markets, you are assured of making enough profits. This may be the reason why many of the dealers don’t seem to bother about taking the product out of the country.
Kola nut is used for many things abroad including spices. It is so useful in oversea that no amount you exported that can be enough. This where the money is.
Steps to Start Kola Nut Export to Foreign Countries
After you might have secured a buyer through referral or through internet, you can conveniently start the business with at least N50,000.
When you buy the kola nuts and have taken enough time to clean it up of some unwanted spots due to Ants infections and other weather related black spots, the next thing is to have it wrapped with a paper wrapper at the weight of 1kg per wrapper then have it 7 wrappers packed into a carton which would be 7kg in all. That is the acceptable kg per carton.
So with a kola nut of N50,000, you would spend at least N10,000 to get the wrappers and other expenses to have it packaged after which you take it to a COURIER company for transporting to the destination where your kola nut export customers are.
This is for a small scale kola nut export. If you are going big with the business then you would have to register with the shipping council to have your goods forwarded for you without hassles.

For those that want to do it in a big way, having an online presence where you can have your goods advertised is very important.
