Huh! 91.1% Of Tomato Pastes In Nigeria Are Fake

Tomato pastes manufacturers in the country, on June 9, told the House of Representatives Joint Committees on Healthcare Services and Drugs and Narcotics that over 91.1 percent of tomato pastes in the country were fake and substandard. Among the firms were Erisco Food and Dangote Tomato Pastry.

They pointedly accused NAFDAC of encouraging foreign firms to flood the Nigerian market with fake and substandard tomato paste. China and India were two countries whose names featured prominently as the origin of such “fake, substandard and cancer-causing tomato paste.

However, many importers, including Nigerians and foreigners, thronged the venue of the hearing to deny the “claims” of Dangote and Erisco that they were conniving with NAFDAC to endanger the lives of Nigerians.
