The company Paste & Juice was accepted as an Associate Member of AMITOM during the organisation's AGM held in Rome on 13 January 2020. 

Paste and Juice Co., which processed 30,600 tonnes of tomatoes in 2019, is a pioneer in Egypt for the cultivation of tomatoes for processing and are now cultivating their own industrial tomatoes in order to secure the needed quantities of tomatoes in high quality to their factories, as the company announced during the Tomato News conference in Avignon & the Tomato Forum in Cologne last year.

On 23rd of December, P&J organized a field day showing and explaining the mechanical harvesting of industrial tomatoes with high yields exceeding 40 tons/acre. At the successful event, Mohamed Aboel-Ela (R&D Section Head) declared that "P&J plans to cultivate 1,000-1,500 acres of industrial tomatoes in 2020 with the aim to reach up to 6,500 acres annually to secure the needed quantities for processing by the factory after new investment in a new procesing line designed with a capacity of processing 2,000 tons of tomato per day. Phase one of the new production line will be designed with a productive capacity of 1,000 tons of tomato per day, with a subsequent upgrade to reach 2,000 tons per day. The new production line will be a state-of-art technology and will be designed to enhance the capacity of the company's production to an excellent level."

Mohamed Aboel-Ela also declared that a total of 400,000 tonnes of tomatoes is expected be processed in Egypt in 2020 by all processing companies. Winter crop started at the beginning of January, after a small delay due to a cold wave but yields are good
