Tomato farming and processing are one of the lucrative businesses in Nigeria as tomato is an important component of the daily diet, consumed both fresh and in paste form.
Fresh tomato is referred to as a fruit while others referred to it as a vegetable and it’s very common in Nigeria and the world as a whole. Tomato as a vegetable fruit is a major food component, an ingredient utilized by every household and constitutes the national food security programme of the Federal Government.
Nigeria is the 14th largest producer of tomatoes in the world and second in Africa after Egypt with about 1.8 million metric tonnes, which she produces annually. Nigeria with a population of about 200 million people has over 48 million tomato farmers across the country and majority of tomato farmers are from the northern part of Nigeria, the intersting fact is that Nigeria accounts for 65 per cent of tomatoes produced in West Africa.
Despite accounting for 65 per cent of tomatoes produced in West Africa, Nigeria is also the largest importer of tomato paste in the world, importing an average of 150,000 metric tons of concentrate per annum, which is valued at $170m. In 2012, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), under Malam Lamido Sanusi, expressed worry about the N11.7billion the country was spending then to import 65,809 metric tons of processed tomato paste.
In 2018, Nigeria current demand for fresh tomato fruits stands at about 2.45 million metric tons annually, while it produces about 1.8 million metric tons. Nigeria now imports 150,000 metric tons of concentrate per annum as against the 65,809 metric tons it did five years ago.
Looking at the statistic above, it shows that there is huge demand for tomato and every serious minded entreprener should venture into tomato farming and processing as soon as possible
The high demand for tomato has made tomato farming and processing business one of the lucrative businesses in Nigeria. Focusing on tomato farming alone can help you make a fortune especially when using the latest technology and modern ways of growing tomato. Unlike the conventional method of using an open land that can be seasonal, using a greenhouse to grow improved varieties of tomato will help you to yield more, reduce input and cost and maximize profit. It can be done all year round.
In 2016 when bacterial blight disease affected tomato farmers in the north which led to the scarcity of tomatoes nationwide, Nigerians knew how important and lucrative tomato farming is and many that have ventured into the business using modern technology are smiling to the bank.
Tomato can be grown anywhere in Nigeria as long as you have healthy soil and availability of water. In Nigeria, there are states that are well-known for growing tomatoes. They are;
- Bauchi State
- Taraba State
- Gombe State
- Kano State
- Zamfara State
