Nigeria looks to increase tomato production by stopping imports
The new policy is expected to increase domestic production and processing of fresh tomatoes in order to reduce post-harvest losses. This policy will “stop the importation of tomatoes, preserved or otherwise by vinegar or acetic acid; increase the tariff on tomato concentrate to 50% with an additional levy of $1,500/MT…, accelerate the growth of the manufacturing industry and deepen diversification,” he said.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration revealed that Nigeria needs 6 million metric tonnes of tomatoes annually to meet domestic needs and to begin exports. The country currently loses about 40% of 1.8 million tonnes of tomato produced annually to post-harvest losses. Enelamah said Nigeria imports an average of 150,000 metric tonnes of tomato concentrate per annum, valued at $170 million, mostly due to an inadequacy in the capacity to produce tomato concentrate.
