PATILAD Tomato Storage & Processing Company is dedicated to the storage and processing of tomatoes in Kaduna State. With the government’s recent attention to the Agricultural industry, Food Processing companies will be needed to ensure that the agricultural products are properly stored and processed to avoid post-harvest loss. The government’s ban on importation also gives room for us to thrive.

The origin of tomatoes can be traced back to South America. At first it was used as an ornamental plant, but from the 19th century it began to be used as an agricultural plant. It is currently cultivated worldwide, and it has become one of the most consumed fruit and vegetable globally.

With tomatoes being a widely consumed product, and a population of 200 million growing at an exponential rate, we have a large market size with a case of inability of supplying the existing demand.

Postharvest Atmosphere Management

To preserve the quality of the harvested tomato from the harvest period till it reaches the consumer. Tomatoes are sensitive to cold, so we store them at temperatures between 10 and 15ºC and humidity of 85-90%. In this way they can be stored between a few days and six weeks.


The ideal temperature for the transportation of tomatoes are between 8 and 14ºC, with high humidity. Distribution is normally made at temperatures between 10 and 15ºC and medium humidity.

The ideal temperatures for the transportation of tomatoes are between 8 and 14ºC, depending on the duration of the trip. Relative humidity must be kept high, between 90 and 95%.

Among the different problems that can be caused during conservation are the following:

  • Softening
