Coffee production and consumption have increased in Nigeria. Nigerian coffee consumption increased by 5% in 2010, partly due to the growth of Nescafe mobile kiosks and a 37% market share in the instant coffee sector.

Nescafe products for Nigeria are manufactured in Ivory Coast and distributed in various locations in West Africa. Nestle holds over 60% of Nigeria's market share.
