Buying locally produced foods provides an important platform to promote better food quality standards in Nigeria. In 2017, WFP procured almost 80% of its food assistance locally — up from 65% in 2016. This increase illustrates the improvements introduced by local suppliers to address quality issues and meet the standards set by WFP.
