Conservas: Túnez espera producir 110 mil toneladas de pasta de tomate en 2018
According to information supplied by the WPTC, the Tunisian tomato industry is expected to process 700 000 mT in 2018, which is slightly more than 13% above 2017 volumes. The Tunisian industry intends to produce 110 000 mT of paste and 22 000 tonnes of canned tomatoes.
The institution of quality-conditioned payments for industrial processing tomatoes will be adopted as from the 2018 season, according to a memorandum of understanding signed at the end of April between the UTICA and the UTAP. This system will be implemented progressively, taking into account the possibilities provided at the levels of production, transport, and processing. Both parties have agreed to encourage all industry players to participate in this program in order to guarantee productivity and quality.
