‘Indomie’ has become almost synonymous with every type of instant noodles sold on the market.
Many have grown up eating the popular brand. Indomie is the noodle of choice in Nigeria and Ghana despite the existence of numerous brands on the market.
Indomie instant noodle was first exported from Indonesia to Nigeria in 1988 and by 1995, Indofood company opened its first production factory in the West African nation.
Presently, the company operates three factories in Nigeria and produces at least eight million packets of noodles per day to meet the high demand.
