REPORT: TOMATO PARTNERSHIP MEETING IN IHEMI CLUSTER.

There has been a rapid increase in the demand for table and processed tomatoes. However, due to challenges such as poor agronomic practices and high post-harvest losses amongst farmers, demand continues to outstrip supply. As a result of the demand-supply imbalance, tomato processors compete against middlemen for tomatoes in the market, and as a result they are often unable to meet their processing targets. For example DARSH Industries, an agro-processor running a tomato processing facility in Iringa, had planned to process 225,000 MT of tomatoes but until the end of the first quarter of 2016 was only able to process 10 % of the expected target, due to limited supply of quality tomatoes for processing.

With the right interventions, there is high potential to increase the quantity and improve the quality of tomato production in Iringa. As a result, processors such as DARSH can provide a consistent market throughout the year, leading
