Setting up a tomato processing plant in Nigeria is not as complex or expensive as most people think  …Let’s show you how it works

Tomato processing in Nigeria

Since 2014, there have been bouts of scarcities of tomato products in Nigeria. By 2019, things have deteriorated and lead to high price of tomato paste and other processed and packaged tomatoes. This is not totally surprising as the government has already placed a ban on importation of tomatoes concentrate into Nigeria. 

The ban was a good initiative for encouraging local production and job opportunities but it came too sudden for a country that produces barely about a million tons of tomatoes annually with local demands soaring above 3million tons annually.

The bulk of tomatoes and concentrates comes from importation from other neighboring countries like Benin republic, Togo, Cameroon and other nations outside Africa.

 Today, the ban has kicked off a revolution in the commercial cultivation of seasonal veggies like tomatoes, pepper, onions etc. It has also led to supports from various organization, including that of  Germany and Nigeria’s collaboration (GIZ/NIP) who have synergized to help train and raise tomatoe cluster farmers across Nigeria.
