The Tomato Growers' Association represents British commercial tomato growers.
Our aim is to emphasise and reassure consumers that our growing methods are both natural and complementary to the product and to the environment, as well as advising them of the health benefits of tomatoes in their diets.
We don't want anyone to buy our tomatoes just because they are British, but because you know they are better.
May 2016 saw another wonderful British Tomato Week, read more about what the work we do, what our growers have to say and who else was helping us celebrate British Tomatoes.
Take a look at our delicious selection of free tomato dish recipes. All the recipes have been taken from our book, Simply Tomatoes.
Did You Know?
In the UK, we eat 6oz (160g) of fresh tomatoes per person per week. This is the equivalent of two classic British tomatoes per week, or more than 100 per year - very low compared with other European countries, especially those in the Mediterranean region.
