Jute bags are made from Jute or Kenaf (Rama) fibers which grow very well across many states in Nigeria. The directive of the World Trade Organization (WTO) to all exporters to use jute bags for all food and exports crops, instead of the more common polypropylene bags, has placed Nigeria in a difficult position as all jute bags are today being imported mostly from Bangladesh and Cote d'Ivoire. Previous efforts in local production of jute bags after independence failed because the manufacturing plants were designed to import yarn from overseas for weaving, which was not sustainable. With extensive R&D carried out in NARICT on kenaf/jute bags technology, the drive is for an integrated approach covering the entire value chain.
This necessitated the establishment of a model plant to serve as catalyst for the private sector renewal and participation in this venture.




  • Lack of Jute Bags manufacturing In Nigeria
  • Agro Products from Nigeria cannot be exported due to W.T.O and F.A.O Restrictions
  • Right now, Jute Bags are imported from neighboring countries thereby deflating our forex running into several thousands of dollars
  • The plant we wish to establish has the capacity to produce 2m Jute Bags per annum
  • Job creation; it is going to create a lot of jobs both in the plant and in the kenaf farms in line with the priority list of the Fed. Min. of Agriculture
  • Capacity building in the processing of kenaf fibres in the farm and final product in the plant
  • The raw materials and intellectual property are sourced locally
  • Increase in GDP by setting up of small and medium scale enterprise in jute sack production
