Dangote Tomato Processing Company Suspends Production by Opharhe: 6:04am On May 14, 2016
Kano - The newly established Dangote
Tomato Processing Factory in Kadawa,
Kano State, has suspended production,
its Managing Director, Alhaji Abdulkadir
Kaita, said.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN) in Kano on Friday that the
company, which commenced
production in February, had stopped
production due to the lack of raw
materials.
He said that the company found it
necessary to suspend production
because there was no fresh tomatoes to
process.
He added that most of the tomato farms
in Kano, Jigawa, Plateau, Katsina and
Kaduna states were affected by a pest
popularly known as “Tuta Absoluta”
which killed all the tomato species there.
The managing director noted that the
pest had destroyed tomato farms in the
affected states, making the price of the
perishable commodity to go up.
The tomato processing factory boss,
however, said production would
commence during the next irrigation
season, emphasising that the company
had the capacity to process 120 tonnes
of fresh tomatoes per day at full
capacity.
