Import ban

The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Investment of Nigeria on 7 May 2017, as part of the newly introduced policy for tomato production, for the first time, banned the import of:

  • tomato paste, powder or concentrate put up for retail sale
  • tomatoes preserved otherwise by vinegar or acetic acid

In addition, the government for the first time introduced a restriction on the importation of tomato concentrate to the seaports address. The official government sources, however, do not provide any specifications (i.e. quotas, rates etc.) concerning these newly introduced restrictions.
