Dear Tomato News reader,
Thank you for being part of the Tomato News Community.
In 2017, we decided to make all the Tomato News information available free of charge so that everyone who wanted information on our industry could get it. We have achieved this goal and our audience is steadily expanding, with more than 1,500 individual visitors to the website every week. By using this service, you are a member of an online community and as with any community, its sustainability depends on the contributions of its members.
We can only continue to provide timely, accurate and trustworthy information for and about the tomato processing industry globally if we receive enough funding from you, our users, readers and our sponsors.
That is why we are asking you to support us with a financial contribution from as little as 400 euros per year, in return for showcasing your company and products in our online Directory. You can also become a website or Tomato News Conference sponsor, or advertise in our 2019 Tomato News Yearbook. You can find all our offers online at http://www.tomatonews.com/en/get-listed_5.html
Thanks again for your support.
The Tomato News team
- François-Xavier Branthôme
On 29 January 2019, the Turkish Ministry of Commerce published in the official gazette a notification about an import quota for tomato paste with zero per cent (0%) custom duty (instead of 135% usual duty).
The total allowed volume is 25,000 mT and the due date for last physical import is 31 May 2019. Being a tomato processor is an condition to claim this quota. Processors should apply within 10 (ten) days after publication date of this official statement by presenting the required documents such as capacity and operating reports and the processor’s tomato paste production and export amounts in past 3 (three) years. After acceptance of applications, the allowed importation amount of each single processor will be decided and published by authorities.
