The Tomato Growers’ Association was founded in 1997, and this year we are celebrating 21 years working together with all of our great British tomato growers and championing the amazing work that they do every day, of every year, to deliver great tasting British tomatoes to your plate.

To celebrate 21 years of the British Tomato Growers’ Association, British tomato events will begin on Monday 21st May. There will be plenty to talk about to mark the traditional start of the British tomato season including some fantastic new recipes, ideas for how to use tomatoes, tasting sessions and some fascinating insight into how our British tomato growers produce such amazing tasting tomatoes.

Celebrate glorious British tomatoes by sharing your photos and stories with the hashtag #BTW18 and follow us on Twitter and Instagram using @britishtomatoes
