Tomatoes are used in countless food products, involving many different types of processing. Tomato processing is the series of steps taken to transform raw tomatoes into various forms that are easier to store, transport, and use in different recipes. The main aim of this process is to extend the shelf life of tomatoes while preserving their nutritional value, taste, and texture. Preservation of tomato by processing it into various high-value products with extended shelf-life can help the country to address the problem of tomato spoilage to a great extent. It can also help address the problem of sudden drop in the tomato price during glut season because of which farmers fail to get the right price for their commodity The most common products resulting from tomato processing are canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, ketchup, and tomato paste. For instance, on a global scale, the annual production of fresh tomatoes amounts to approximately 180 million tonnes.  About a quarter of those 160 million tonnes are grown for the processing industry, which makes tomatoes the world’s leading vegetable for processing. On average 39 million tonnes of tomatoes are processed every year in factories belonging to the greatest labels of the global food industry.

By Region North America Has Dominate the Tomato Processing Market.

Most of this production is based in the Northern hemisphere, where an average of 90% of the world’s crop is processed between the months of July and December. The remaining 10% are processed in the Southern hemisphere between January and June. Owing to the fact that the consumption of the Process tomato is highest in the north America is the highest. Which results into the Largest Market Share of the market
For instance, according to World Processing Tomato Council (WPTC) North America the main consumption region on a global scale (8 million tonnes of raw material equivalent), ahead of the Western European Union (5.9 million tonnes), in a ranking that once again confirms the emergence of regions such as the Middle East (3.9 million tonnes) and Eurasia (3.3 million tonnes), as well as their increasingly important place in the global landscape. The other regions together account for less than half (44%) of estimated global consumption.

Despite the fact that many countries have a tomato processing industry, this production is strongly concentrated and the ten largest producing countries account for some 83 % of the world’s yearly production. However, in recent years, the quantities processed outside these ten countries are California, China, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Iran, Portugal, Brazil, Chile, Ukraine, Tunisia increasing steadily and the share of in global activity tends to decrease. 


By Product Type

The paste condenses large tomatoes into a thick, long-shelf-stable product. This reduces shipping and storage costs compared to processing whole tomatoes. Tomato paste is a very useful food that can be used in many things such as sauces, soups, casseroles, pizza, pasta, and drinks such as Bloody Marys. Tomatoes are seasonal, but Paste allows companies to maintain a consistent supply of tomatoes throughout the year. Making tomato paste intensifies the flavor and makes a better addition to tomato dishes than using fresh tomatoes.
For instances, according to World Processing Tomato Council Paste is the main tomato product, both in production volume and in commercial value. 10 countries export 95% of the total volume which are Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Hunger, Poland, China, Turkey, USA, Iran, Chile, PeruIn. 2021/2022, global exports of tomato paste generated more than USD 3.6 billion of the USD 7.5 billion generated by the global trade of tomato products.

By Process

Two Methods are used Commercially to Produced Tomato Product by Hot Break and Cold Break, “Hot" typically refers to a chopping temperature of 85 to 90 °C, which causes inactivation of enzymes important to aroma and viscosity. “Cold" refers to a temperature below 70 °C to increase enzyme activity. A characteristic of the cold break process is a decrease in viscosity. The main difference between the tomato paste “cold break” and “hot break” processes is the degree of heating of the material before the pulping treatment after the tomato is crushed and the elapsed time at that temperature. In tomato processing the Hot Break is widely used because it is considered to be the healthiest way of consuming tomatoes for Tomatoes that are heated or cooked at high-temperature release an antioxidant and phytochemicals like Lutein and Zeaxanthin, also Heat-processed tomato concentrate is rich in Vitamin B and Potassium. These nutrients are responsible for keeping our cholesterol level within the normal range owing to these Factor the Hot Break processing is widely used in the processing
For instance, according to University of California Agriculture and natural Resources (UCANR)The hot break method is used to produce the majority of tomato products to maintain a high viscosity.
