The European production of fresh tomatoes remains stable until 2025, according to the European Commission’s expectation. The value of that stable production continues to rise as a result of increasing diversity in the supply, as can be read in the 'EU Agricultural Outlook 2019-2030'.
The report is in line with the analysis recently given by AMI's Hans-Christoph Behr at the Global Tomato Congress.
In more detail, the European Commission anticipates a European increase in tomato exports until 2030 by 3.6% per year. The tomato imports into the EU will increase more slowly by 1% per year than in the past decade, when the increase was 3% per year.
In that report, the Commission further expresses the expectation that European agricultural income will decrease until 2025 and then rise towards 2030 thanks to increasing production volume and price increases.
