The Big Questions
When are tomatoes harvested?
Harvest for tomatoes usually starts in Spain in late July.
We constantly keep an eye on the tomatoes market to keep prices competitive for our customers.
What are tomatoes good for?
Fresh tomatoes are a healthy ingredient that can be used in a number of international favours including salads, sauces, curries and stews.
The problem with using fresh tomatoes in production is that, as with all fresh vegetables, they have a very short shelf life.
Our tomatoes come in diced, pastes and passatas, we also offer crushed and powdered. They are stored in an ambient bag in box or in drums, staying fresher for longer.
