The study was carried out in Rivers and Bayelsa States. It made use of survey research design. The population of the study was 1,393; made up of 21 management (government) staff, 125 employees, 1127 producers and 120 consumers respectively.

The data collected were analysed using mean and standard deviation to answer the research questions while t-test statistics was used for testing the null hypotheses (Ho) at P ? 0.05 level of significance and 276 degree of freedom (df). Analysis of Variance was used to analyse the mean rating of the various groups.
