Ice block is water in its solid state. It is produced when water is fed into some nylon bags and then packed into an Ice block making machine for some hours to solidify. The high demand for ice blocks for cooling has created a booming business opportunity in cities, towns and villages across Nigeria

We live in a very hot environment and so we consume lots of liquid/drinks. Except on medical grounds, every Nigerian would prefer cold drinks to warm drinks any time, any day. People who run businesses that deal on drinks will attest to the fact that customers will always demand for chilled drinks and when you can give them chilled drinks at every point, then you will be their first port of call as long as drinks is concerned.

But, not all these can afford to run generators endlessly. With the epileptic power supply and high cost of fuel in the country, it is next to impossible to achieve this feat without extra exorbitant running costs which may likely put an entrepreneur out of business; hence they need ice-blocks to cool to get their drinks chilled.

At home, the electricity supply problem is forcing households to use ice blocks to preserve their food and drinks.

Ice Block Business is Good Because

A.Country like Nigeria is located in one of the hottest region in the world

B.Our economy is such that majority of people involved in hard labour job to make their ends meet.

C. Most of the commercial cities always experience heavy traffic couple with hot weather which make people yearn for cold and chilled drinks, beverages, snacks and so on regularly.

D. One can imagine the number of chilled sachet water people drink every day. Another convenient reason why people prefer to use ice blocks is that they are faster and more efficient at cooling liquid.

Compared to cooling your drinks in a fridge or packing them in a freezer when you can’t carry your iced drinks from home everywhere, ice blocks can provide chilled liquid in any location; whenever and wherever you want it.


What Is Needed? How to Set Up Ice Block Business In Nigeria

Before venturing into ice block business there are certain things that will be needed and I will be talking about each below:

Water

This is the first and the most important material that is needed for ice block production.

You need a very clean water that is well treated…….you don’t want water that will contaminate people’s food or drinks as this ice block will be used to cool mostly edible stuffs and comes in contact with them.

If you don’t have a good source of water you can buy from companies that sell water but it is preferable if you have a borehole or a very good well.

The highest form of hygiene should be carried out please.

Ice Block Making Machine

Ice block machine is what is used to produce ice block, they are very easy to use just like the regular freezers but in an advanced way and with more capacity too.

There are containers that are rectangular in shape where water is poured to make the ice and the ice takes form of the container when it’s ready.

These ice block machines are locally and foreign made, depending on your budget you can get either of them.

The price range differs based on the number of ice that can be made at once by the ice block machine.

We have those that can make 100, 80, 60,50,40 etc. ice block at once.

Frezzers Can Also Be Used For Ice Block

So, can deep freezers be used for ice block?

Well, deep freezer could also be used for ice block but it takes longer time to give result.

For example where an ice block machine would produce a large number of ice at one within 7 to 8 hours a deep freezer may take more time and the quantity would not be up to what an ice block maker would make at once.

Please to all aspiring entrepreneurs please try hard to earn money this trying times.
