COMPANY PROFILE AND HISTORY
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.
Today, Vital Products Ltd can look back with a sense of pride and accomplishment at our heritage and achievement as a leading provider of Consumer Healthcare and Food products in Nigeria.
Vital Products Ltd became operational in 1999 with the backup of an extensive business experience that spans over two decades. The company has gradually etched itself into the Nigerian foods and beverages market by maintaining quality control backed by best technology in all its operations.
From a consumer and healthcare products company distributing only pharmaceutical products, the company has forayed into the manufacture and distribution of high quality fruit juices and non-alcoholic beverages.
Vital Products Ltd has also invested substantially in the fruits and vegetables processing industry. The company has, as part of its plans for expansion, procured a multi-million naira plant solely for the production of processed tomatoes and other food seasonings. This is aimed at lowering the cost of such products in the open market as well as offer new methods on food preservation.
