  • 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, and hold the following four values at the core of our business:

    • We care about the company
    • We care about each other
    • We are problem solvers
    • We are humble

    In line with these core values, 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. 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 make our tomato paste for 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
