ERISCO Foods Limited on Thursday commissioned its new 450,000 tonnes tomato paste processing plant in Oregun, Lagos State, constructed at a cost of N4 billion ($150 million).
Wife of Nigeria’s President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, who inaugurated the plant tasked relevant government regulatory agencies to step up actions towards checking the......
import of foreign and substandard foods into the country to protect local manufacturers and the health of Nigerian citizens.
“I think we have imported enough and we have to change that culture of importing things we can produce locally,” Mrs. Buhari said in her address.
“This is part of the change we are talking about that must happen in the country. Local food manufacturers have to be encouraged to grow as that is the only way to create employment for the youths and help local farmers to benefit more from their labour. Nigerians must also patronise local companies and their products,” she added.
