Tomato Jos is a Nigerian agribusiness that intends to be the first fully integrated tomato paste company in the country. We started operations in 2014. We have developed a fully mechanized and sustainable farming strategy that enabled our company to produce some of the highest tomato yields in the country last year. We also work with a network of outgrower farmers, which both empowers rural smallholders in northern Nigeria and enables our processing facility to source raw material from a wider area of land. Our processing facility runs with the highest quality standards to produce fresh, tasty tomato paste made from Nigerian tomatoes that were grown on Nigerian farms. We sell our tomato paste to domestic consumers, promoting our product as all natural and proudly Nigerian. We are continuously evolving as implementers, and we are looking for like-minded problem solvers to join our team. We are always looking for fresh ideas about how to grow, transport, and process tomatoes in Nigeria.
