“The machines are under guarantee and we are not able to operate last year due to the scarcity of fresh tomato in Kano and other neighbouring states,” he said.

Kaita said the engineers would assess the quality parameters as well as the installed capacity of the machines before they could finally hand them over to the company.

“Our engineers are ready to begin work and as soon as the other team of engineers arrive, we hope to resume operation on Sunday.”

He said the company had decided to resume production following the availability of the commodity and the recent crash of its prices in the market.

The company had last year stopped production due to the scarcity of fresh tomato as a result of pest that ravaged farms in Kano and other tomato-producing states.

However, to ensure sufficient supply of the commodity, the company recently signed an agreement with farmers in Gombe and Sokoto State on how to boost production of tomato for use in the factory.
