From a study of the West African Cold Storage Company, this film conveys that a large industrial enterprise can both directly and indirectly help a country to develop.

A new meat foods factory in Lagos, Nigeria shows how a large new industrial enterprise affects national economy by its dependence on the development of ancillary industries and activities. The character and position of a young Nigerian distribution manager emphasise the great changes taking place in West Africa.
