In Nigeria, 40–50% of fresh fruits and vegetables
are lost during crating, transportation, storage and processing. In the tomato sector, for instance, it is estimated that more than 40% of tomato production does not reach consumers.
One of the main reasons for this massive waste is the lack of a temperature-controlled supply chain— known as cold chain—which prevents fresh foods from spoiling between farm and market. Tomatoes, for example, must travel long distances as they are largely grown in the north of the country, but mostly consumed in urban centres in the south.
A higher, quality and more predictable supply ultimately means more stable prices for consumers and a good deal in logistics.
