NAFDAC Seals Unregistered Juice Company In Ibadan

NAFDAC Seals Unregistered Juice Company In Ibadan 

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has sealed a juice manufacturing company, B-Supreme, in Ibadan for operating without an agency registration number.

South-West Director Rosline Ajayi disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Ibadan.

Ajayi explained that NAFDAC received a tip about the company’s operation through internal collaboration.

“We collaborate extensively,” she said. “Our Osun state office shared a WhatsApp video of the company’s products discovered in a hamper without a NAFDAC registration number.”

Ajayi confirmed the address on the package and verified with her records that B-Supreme had applied for registration. However, no inspection had been conducted, and no registration number had been issued.

“An application and payment are not the same as registration,” the director clarified. “Several procedures are involved in registering a product.”

 NAFDAC inspectors located the company and discovered it was producing three varieties of juice without proper registration.

“The first step was to seal the premises as an unauthorised facility producing unregistered products,” Ajayi explained.

The company’s representative, invited to NAFDAC’s office, revealed that their only registered product was water, from 2018. He had also initiated registration for juices but never completed the proces

Ajayi noted that B-Supreme lacked the necessary equipment for juice production and packaging. Completing the registration process would require acquiring additional machinery.

NAFDAC plans to raise public awareness and remove existing B-Supreme juice from circulation. The agency urges Nigerians to avoid patronising products without NAFDAC registration numbers.
