Evaluation of the microbiological and physico-chemical characteristics of local tomato ‘Solanum lycopersicum’ puree produced on a small scale in Togo

Tomatoes are produced, processed and widely consumed by the Togolese population. However, the local production is not developed enough to be able to provide locally processed tomatoes. In order to promote local development, stimulate local processing and reduce post-harvest losses, the processing into puree was undertaken with three locally grown varieties of tomatoes in Togo (Aklikonvi, Tohounvi, and Pomvi).

In Kenya, the coconut sub-sector is valued at KES 25 billion, yet only 65% is utilised, which is partly contributed by insufficient knowledge of the coconut’s physico-chemical features and investment in the sector. Physico-chemical...
