Tomato Processing Industries: Global and Indian Perspectives

Tomato processing in India is less than 1% compared to the developed countries like Italy (64.02%), Spain (39.41%) and USA (10.34%). Of total over 180 million tones of annual production of tomato, nearly 40 million tones are processed. With a substantial production of tomatoes mainly in winter season, India has secured its place as a key player in the global tomato processing market. This will be helpful for off-season utilization of tomato based products in Indian market. The sector?s emphasis on partnerships with farmers and sustainable practices not only ensures a steady supply of raw materials but also fosters responsible agricultural methods. Thus, there is a huge potential of processing industries for diverse utilization of tomatoes in India.
