Posted by

GB Foods has revealed a tomato processing factory in Kebbi State with a capacity of 620 metric tonnes per day as part of its massive investment growth in Nigeria. This plant will help reduce the country’s reliance on tomato imports.

The farm and facility, which covers 1500 hectares of land, has a processing capacity of 620 metric tonnes per day and employs 2000 people. GB Foods intends to treble that number during their next expansion phase. It will be the largest integrated tomato project in Africa when the farm and processing plant are finished.

President Bola Tinubu was represented at the occasion by Senator Abubakar Kyari, who is also minister of agriculture and food security. Other notable dignitaries also attended.

Foreign investors have faith in Nigeria’s policy climate, according to Kyari, who praised GB Foods’ investment.

Dr. Nasir Idris, governor of Kebbi State, praised the firm for its fearlessness in meeting problems head-on and brought attention to the fact that the project had already been initiated and completed during the time that former governor Atiku Bagudu was in office.

To make sure the factory runs at full capacity, he promised complete government assistance and thanked the corporation for using 3,335 local out-growers to cultivate tomatoes in the state.
