Dangote tomato processing plant to resume production in Kano

Dangote tomato processing plant has stated operations

The Dangote tomato processing factory  in Kadawa, Kura local government area of Kano state is to resume production in February.

The company, which began production in February 2016, had to suspend operation due to lack of enough raw materials.

The managing director of the company, Alh. Abdulkadir Kaita, said the preparation for production to resume was at an advanced stage.

Kaita stated that the company had to suspend production, when most of the tomato farms in about five states were affected by a pest, which destroyed all the tomato species.

According to him, many tomato farmers at the Kadawa, Kura, Garun-Malam and Hadeja-Jama’are irrigation sites are expected to produce enough for the company to process.

He said that the company which had the capacity to process 40 trucks or 1,200 tonnes of fresh tomatoes per day, would soon begin recruitment of additional staff.

A pest popularly known as “Tuta Absoluta’’ destroyed tomato farms in Kano, Jigawa, Plateau, Katsina and Kaduna states
