WHY TOMATOE ?

Turkish tomato production is predicted to continue increasing ( an increase of +70% in tomato exports has been reported during the last five years ) in 2008/2009 to about 10.5 million tons. In the first four months of 2008 Turkish tomato exports to Russia ( Turkey's biggest market in tomato exports) reached already 120 000 tons. Russia, actually, counts for 60% of Turkey's exports. 


In 2009 Turkey continued to export more tomatoes to Russia, Ukrania, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Poland, Moldova, Greece and to the other Middle Eastern countries. Russian importers became Turkey's biggest clients in tomatoes but also in other fruits.        


Concerning the tomato paste exports, Turkey currently ranks fourth in the world production after China, USA, and Italy. Turkey has become one of the major exporters of tomato paste in the world. When the first tomato paste exports started in 1967 Turkey exported 3.5 tons of tomato paste whereas the exports reached nearly 160 000 tons in 2006. This amount decreased to about 100 000 tons because of the raise in tomato exports ( +70% in the last five years, mainly to Russia ) but the Turkish tomato paste is successfully shipped all over the world. The principal markets of this product are Iraq, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Russia, Sudan, Oman, Germany and Kuwait. These markets represent about 80% of the Turkish tomato paste exports. The number of importer countries of Turkish tomato paste increase every year. This market trend justifies the quality of the Turkish tomato paste products. Use of sun matured delicous industrial type tomatoes, ultra modern progressing techniques and delivery in time and competitive prices, have all been the major factors in the growing demand for the Turkish tomato paste.
