One of the most important spices used in making Nigeria food is Pepper. You can hardly find a complete Nigerian meal without the use of at-least one variety of pepper. Hence, Pepper production is an important crop production in Nigeria. With rising domestic demand, coupled with a drop in exports, Pepper continues to set the trend for its marketing and production. The main suppliers of the commodity to the global market are Vietnam, India, Indonesia and Brazil; while the major destinations for its export are the US, Europe, Japan and Australia. In Nigeria, the price of pepper has been subjected to seasonal fluctuation recently. There is a massive demand for pepper in the Southern-Western Nigeria from the Northern Nigeria despite that there is also possibility to grow this crop in the South West. This is an indication that demands for pepper is great and urgent in Nigeria, especially in the Southern Western Nigeria. Due to the drastic increase in domestic demand for pepper, there has been a decline in the quantity exported several producing countries. It is worthy of note that despite the production level of pepper in Nigeria, pepper is still being imported. This signifies that there is a need for an increase in the supply of pepper to make up for the increase in the domestic demand and to also give room for exportation.
