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.
The BTGA wishes to thank all the speakers, sponsors, trade stands, members and delegates for attending their 21st Anniversary Conference. The conference was a huge success with a record number of delegates, and a mix of technical and commercial presentations, and excellent talks from NFU President, Minette Batters and ex-professional footballer John Hartson.
We are thrilled to announce the date for next year’s conference, on 26th September 2019. Put the date in your diaries and check the website for further details soon.
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.
27th & 28th September 2018
The 2018 British Tomato Conference will take place at Chesford Grange Hotel and Conference Centre in Warwickshire on the 27th and 28th September 2018. We'll be updating the website with more information soon, if you are interested in having a trade stand or sponsoring the event please contact the TGA Offices. You can also book your places using our online booking form.
