Tomato Factory to Reopen February

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 Feb. 2016, had to suspend operation due to lack of enough raw materials.

The Managing Director of the company, Abdulkadir Kaita, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria yesterday in Kano.

He added that preparation for production to resume was at an advanced stage.

Kaita said 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.

“We expect that tomato farmers would have produced enough for the company to process, hence our decision to resume production in February,’’ he said.
