Global Tomato ProcessingIndustry The main production regions are located in temperate zones, close to the 40th parallels North and South. However, most of this production is based in the Northern hemisphere, where an average of 91% of the world’s crop is processed between the months of July and December. The remaining 9% are processed in the Southern hemisphere between January and June. In commercial terms, exchange volumes and commercial results also position the tomato processing sector among the main players of the global food industry. For the industrial market, tomato paste is the most important ingredient because it is used as the basis for a wide range of other products such as ketchups, sauces, soups, salsas, tinned meat and fish, etc.
Tomato ProcessingIndustry in Turkey Tomato processing industry is the pioneering sector in food processing industry. Although the dominant traditional processing line is tomato paste processing, peeledand diced tomatoes are the other promising products. Tomato paste processingplants are also suitable to process other fruits and vegetables during off season. Production capacity of the tomato paste factories was 145 000 tons/year in 1982, jumped to 300 000 tons/year in 1990 and reached to 430 000 tons/ year and 495 000tons/year respectively in 1997 and 1998. Currently production capacity of tomatopaste processing factories is over 650 000 tons / year. Actually over 70 plantsprocess tomatoes and most of them are located in Bursa, in the Marmara Region.

Turkey is a country of agricultural origin whose agricultural output shows significant increasesevery year.
Turkey is the largest producer and exporter of agriculture products in the Near East and NorthAfricanregion.
Including agroindustry the share of industrial productsin Turkeyare94,8 %.
Due to the climatic and ecological conditions that are naturally granted, Turkey has the means todominate world trade in many traditional agricultural products.
Turkey's vast agricultural potential, offers an extensive range of fruits and vegetables, especiallytomatoes.
Rapid growth occurred throughout the 1980’s, led by manufacturing but also by agroindustryand a resurgence of both domestic and foreign investment in Turkey. Trade policies, which includedexport credits and credit subsidies, also enhanced the export performance of the sector.
Emerging Food And Beverage Business Environment Ratings Turkey has a high score mainly due its large population, lack of market maturity or saturation, and favourable long-term economic structure and GDP per capita. As a major agricultural producer with an increasingly positive food and beverage trade balance, Turkey offers easy access to raw materials. Turkey ranks in 5th place according to theBusiness Environment Ratings. The analysis emphasizes the food and beverage industry’s attractiveness to investors by taking into consideration the market size, current consumption levels, future potential growth and the legislative and political environment.
The advantagein Turkey for investors in this subsector of the food branchto come is that it has a very well established domestic market for these.
Turkey also will get synergies out of this business, as Turkey is also producing around 45 million tonnes of fresh F&Vs whereas the exports lie ataround 1,3 billion USD as 2010. Our target to expand to 4 billion USD.
There are opportunities for processors of freshF&Vs from all over the world to invest and get a decent return on investment in this land where a lot of fertile land and water is available.
