To know how much a bag of rice costs currently in Nigeria today, one must first be aware that most rice dealers fix prices based on some factors. The size, brand, economy, dollar exchange rate and even location are just a few factors influencing the cost of bag of rice prices in the country.

Rice is a very common foodstuff in Nigeria and indeed the world. It is scientifically known as “Oryza Sativa” and it is one of the most popular grain/cereal eaten by human beings.

Apart from eating rice as normal meal, it is regarded as one of the best food for ceremonies in the southwestern part of Africa. Many Nigerians believe a ceremony is not complete until rice is added to the list of food served to guests or celebrant.

Although, there are various brands of rice in the country, it would be wise to know the current prices of bag of rice in the Nigerian market so as to know the type you would buy.

rice in Nigeria


There many ways you can prepare your rice, you can decide to cook it without adding any seasoning or ingredients except salt. However, you will need to prepare a very delicious stew which will give it a great taste whenever you are eating. This type of rice is referred to as “white rice” by an average Nigerian.

You can equally make it as Jollof, Coconut rice, Fried rice, Banga rice and many other ways.

We won’t be teaching you how to cook all of the listed ways of cooking rice today, but focus more on bag of rice prices in Nigeria. However, we promise to come up with a special article on how to go about it.


There are different sizes of rice packs in the country and beyond. The larger the size, the higher the prices, however, sizes has no influence on quality and longevity.

In Nigeria today, you can get as low as rice of 5kg pack, your can equally get the one of 50kg – it all depend on your preference and your financial capacity. You can also get rice of 25kg, 10 kg and 30kg at a very affordable price if you want to buy bag of rice from a direct supplier (wholesaler).


Prices of rice has somewhat reduced drastically across the country compared to what it used to be some years ago, thanks to the embargo placed on importation of foreign rice.

In 2023, 50kg bag of foreign rice is sold for huge ₦31, 000 while Nigerian rice is sold for ₦25, 000 due to the unstable economy and  only wealthy citizens could afford eating rice on daily basis.

But situation got better during the previous year as the government laid some emphasis on locally-made agricultural products.

As result of government’s zeal to totally eradicate the importation of foreign rice, some states of the federation were agriculturally empowered so as to increase the production of rice across the country.

This has brought massive improvements to the availability of rice, though, there are more to be desired as we believe it can still get better.

Having said that, let’s quickly reveal the brands of rice alongside their present prices in Nigeria.

This list contains name of brand, sizes and the price of each sizes. It also includes locations where you can get it without any stress.

It is important to let you know that these brands are NOT made-in-Nigeria products, they are foreign rice that somehow find their way into the country despite the embargo placed on rice importation by government.
