The origin of tomatoes can be traced to South America with the Mexicans being the first people to domesticate it as a food. The consumption of tomatoes spread throughout the world following the Spanish colonization of the Americas and today tomatoes are grown in over 150 countries. Tomato processing, which began with the manual canning of tomatoes in 1847 currently represents a highly organized industry with sales worth billions of dollars. Around 80% of the tomatoes produced worldwide are consumed as fresh, whereas the remaining 20% are utilized in the tomato processing industry. Processed tomato products include- peeled tomato, partially dehydrated tomato, diced tomato, tomato snacks, tomato paste, ketchup, soup, juice, sauce, powder and concentrate. Among all these products, tomato ketchup and tomato sauce in small packages have seen a rapid growth in the past few years. The United States currently represents the worlds biggest tomato processor accounting for more than one third of the total global tomatoes processed. Other major countries include- Italy, China, Turkey, Iran, Spain and Brazil. As an important flavoring ingredient, processed tomato products are extensively used in the food processing industry, fast food joints, hotels, restaurants and in house-hold consumption. A number of factors are currently driving the growth of the tomato processing industry. These include changing food habits, rising incomes, urabanisation, increasing snack food consumption, emerging markets, growing consumption (especially by teenagers and youngsters) of fast foods, etc. IMARCs latest study Tomato Processing Plant Project Report: Industry Trends, Manufacturing Process, Machinery, Raw Materials, Cost and Revenue provides a techno-commercial roadmap for setting up a tomato processing plant.
