The Bank of Industry has called for entries from young Nigerians to participate in an upcoming tomato processing and packaging workshop scheduled to hold in Kano and Lagos States.

Application opens 17th February and closes 23rd February 2017.

This initiative further enhances the Federal Government’s plans to diversify the economy, with emphasis on core agriculture and other industries with the agribusiness value chain.

Nigeria ranks as the second highest producer of tomatoes in Africa, yet N11.7 billion is spent annually to import processed tomato paste into the country while over 200,000 farmers in Nigeria, whom collectively grow over 1.5 million metric tonnes of tomatoes every year, currently grow this vegetable crop.

Thus, in a bid to deepen the techniques of tomato processing and setting up of small-scale tomato processing and packaging venture, the Bank Of Industry Limited is organising a technical training on tomato processing & packaging workshop for Nigerian youths scheduled to hold in Kano and Lagos respectively.
