Don't be surprised if Dangote goes into this business. The business is currently controlled by the Indians.

I know Transcorp has a subsidiary in Benue, that is into local production of tomato puree.

Why do people use tinned tomatoes puree? Why don't they use fresh tomatoes?

It is cheaper, and the prices are stable. You can buy a basket of tomato for 5000 Naira today and buy the same product for 15000 Naira in 2 weeks time.

We do not have agro processing and packaging companies. Tomatoes are cheap immediately after harvest, since they perishable products they become very expensive after harvest. They last longer when they are processed into puree. That is the problem people living in cities like Lagos are going through. Most canteens, restaurants and fast food joints used tomato puree in their cooking.

The preservatives used in our processed foods are carcinogeous. That is one of the prices we have to pay for our modern lifestyle.

Very good of Aliko. He will always move into any venture that has a good potential of giving wonderful return.
We should not live the Asians to keep on controlling our economy.
Make Aliko, try list his tomato processing company but the company should not be overvalued.

Someone said to make money in Nigeria, watch what the Indians are investing in.

That means the parent company is listed, the tomato processing company is a subsidiary of NASCON.

i would have loved a situation where the tomato processing company is separately listed under the agricultural sector.
