Distribution 

World tomato production was 152 million tons in 2009. The main tomato producers were China, USA, India, Turkey, Egypt, Italy, Iran, Spain, Brazil and Mexico (75 % of the world production (FAO, 2011). More than a third of this production is grown for the processing industry, which makes tomatoes the world’s leading vegetable for processing (Tomato News, 2010).

The production of tomato by-products is seasonal and linked to the harvest period. Most of the product is available in late warm-season and drying or ensiling is necessary for storage (Weiss et al., 1997). Tomato tomato by-products are usually found in the vicinity of tomato processing plants.
