The questions we all want answers to heading into the 2022 processing tomato year.
- What does 12.2 million tons in 2022 contracts mean for processing tomato supply and demand?
- How does the 12.2 million crop and acres relate to history?
- Why isn’t a 24% price increase in raw tomatoes getting California more acres when there has been such a substantial jump in price? Surely, 24% moves the needle?
This month’s TOMATO BITES video is more like the WHOLE tomato. The California processing tomato industry is up against some unique challenges, so we’ve changed things up and this time invite you to sit at the table with Morning Star colleagues Aaron Giampietro and Mark De La Mater as they discuss the relevancy and impact of the recent CLFP and USDA NASS reports, as well as highlighting historical trends and anticipated impacts to supply and demand.
