Production is set to resume next month at the Dangote Tomatoes Processing Factory in Kadawa, Kura Local Government Area of Kano State.
Managing Director of the firm, Mr Abdulkadir Kaita, informed journalists on Tuesday in Kano that “We expect that tomato farmers would have produced enough for the company to process, hence our decision to resume production in February.”
He explained that, “We deliberately decided to resume production in February because we don’t want to create scarcity of the commodity.
“We want to make sure that there is enough to process so that its price will not go up.”
It would be recalled that Dangote Tomatoes Processing Factory commenced production in February 2016 and suspended operations due to lack of enough raw materials.
It was gathered that this was because most of the tomato farms in about five states were affected by a pest, which destroyed all the tomato species.
However, Mr Kaita revealed that preparation for resumption of production was at an advanced stage.
