Executive Summary of Snail Production and Processing Business Plan In Nigeria
Introduction of Snail Production and Processing Business Plan In Nigeria
Snail meat has been consumed by humans worldwide since prehistoric times. It is high in protein (12-16%) and iron (45-50 mg/kg), low in fat, and contains almost all the amino acids needed by humans. A recent study has also shown that the glandular substances in edible snail meat cause agglutination of certain bacteria, which could be of value in fighting a variety of ailments, including whooping cough.
In Ghana for instance, the bluish liquid obtained from the shell when the meat has been removed is believed to be good for infant development. The high iron
content of the meat is considered important in treating anaemia. In the past, it was recommended for combating ulcers and asthma. At the Imperial Court in Rome, snail meat was thought to contain aphrodisiac properties and was often served to visiting dignitaries in the late evening.
In West Africa, snail meat has traditionally been a major ingredient in the diet of people living in the high forest belt (the forested area other than the savannah forest). In Côte d’Ivoire, for example, an estimated 7.9 million kg are eaten annually. In Nigeria it is clear that demand currently outstrips supply.
As a business, they offer an opportunity for Snail farmers to earn steady income and also provide employment opportunities for countless number of men and women.
One of the major customers for snail farms in Nigeria are the major fast-food companies like Mr. Biggs, Tantalizer, Sweet Sensation and UAC followed by hotels, restaurants and then household consumers of snail. The high demand for fresh table-sized snail and other semi-processed snail derivatives has led to an increase in Snail farms springing up in many parts of the country.
However, there is a short fall in the supply of snail because most of the snail farms in the country are overtly small scale producers and not with consistent supply of snails all year round. Hence starting a snail farm of your own either on a large or small scale is indeed a very wise decision as this will bring you immense financial benefit both in the short and long term.
