Who We Are

AFBTE is a business membership organisation established in 1979 under the Trade Union Act of 1978. Membership is open to companies that are manufacturers of Food, Beverage and Tobacco products and that employ a minimum of ten workers.

Though, legally a trade union, AFBTE is functionally a trade organisation in view of the spectrum of its responsibilities which now covers trade matters, regulatory issues and public advocacy.

What We Do

  • Negotiates (on behalf of its members) collective agreements covering salaries and wages, and major fringe benefits, with the National Union of Food, Beverage and Tobacco Employees (Junior Staff) and the Food, Beverage and Tobacco Senior Staff Association.
  • Assists members in resolving industrial conflicts.
  • Provides research and advisory services to its member-companies.
  • Provides information on terms and conditions of employment in the industry for its members.
  • Liaises and dialogues with regulatory agencies (NAFDAC, SON, RMRDC, Weights & Measures, Federal Ministry of Environment, etc) on issues of
    interest to its members.
  • Sources, trains and develops human capital in the industry
  • Serves as the platform for the protection of the interest of members against any development in the macro-economic environment that threatens business survival.
