The consumption of tomato-based products has increased by around 4% between 2018 and 2019 compared to the average level of the previous three years and increased by 8% compared to the preceding year according to the World Processing Tomato Council. Western Europe and North America comprised 44% of the world’s total tomato consumption in 2019, a drop from when they comprised 56% in 2000.
