Farmers concerns over counterfeit products, Nigeria
The growing market for agrochemicals in Nigeria has attracted counterfeiters. Fraudsters and counterfeiters are eying the global agrochemical market estimated to net $266 billion in 2021, according to statistics. Experts say over 20 percent of that market share will be lost globally to the adulteration and counterfeiting industry. It is estimated that over 70 per cent of Nigeria’s close to 190 million people are said to be farmers. Agrochemicals, such as fertiliser, pesticides, fungicides and insecticides are commonly used in agriculture to control weeds, pests, improve crop performance and yields. Recently, regulators, such as the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control(NAFDAC) raised the alarm over the influx of adulterated and substandard agro-chemicals in many stores across the country .
American consumers concerned about inauthentic products
According to a recent Harris Poll, commissioned by Applied DNA Sciences, roughly four in five Americans (79%) are concerned that products they purchase which they expect to be high quality could be made using low quality materials ; more than 7 in 10 Americans (71%) are concerned that products they purchase have made false claims; and, nearly two thirds (65%) are concerned that products they purchase at full price could be knock-offs.
