Nigeria's palm oil industry shows signs of slow growth

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Nigeria’s palm oil industry shows signs of slow growth” – below is their description.

Palm oil producers in Nigeria say they’re struggling to stay in business because of higher costs of production, climate change and illegal smugglers.

Demand rose slightly earlier this year after Indonesia banned palm oil exports. But farmers say a chronic lack of investment is holding back their industry.

Al Jazeera’s Ahmed Idris reports from Okomu, Nigeria.
