New Zealanders love fresh tomatoes. The latest Statistics New Zealand Household Economic Survey reported that New Zealand households spent $118.7 million on fresh tomatoes in the year to June 2013, just behind spending on potatoes. This figure was up from $99m in the 2010 survey.

There are about 150 growers who produce standard and specialty fresh tomatoes that have a farm gate value of $100 million per annum, including $9 million of exports in 2014. The principal export markets are Australia and Japan, and product is also exported to many Pacific Rim and Pacific island countries.
