Despite all the hype, the Tolaram Group, an international private consortium and promoters of the Lagos Free Trade Zone (LFTZ), has said that even as more investors are indicating interest in the massive developmental project, only four industries have commenced operations in the Zone.

The consortium said so far, it has a combined project value investment of about $150million for the development of the four factories, while it plans to invest more funds as new industries spring up at the facility.

The factories include the TG Arla, manufacturers of Dano Milk; Palm Oil Refinery, producers of power oil; Cereals and Kellogs Production Company and the Insignia Technology Prints.
