Description
The World Processing Tomato Council (WPTC) is an international non-profit organization representing the tomato processing industry. Currently, its members represent more than 95% of the volume of tomatoes processed worldwide.
The organization was created in May 1998 during the 3rd World Processing Tomato Congress held in Pamplona (Spain).
 
The World Processing Tomato Council is constituted by professional growers and/or processors organizations representative of their production area. It is headquartered in Avignon (France) and currently chaired by Dimitris Nomikos (Greece). Mike Montna (California) and Jason Fritsch (Australia) are the two Vice-Presidents. Sophie Colvine is the General Secretary.
 
Professional organizations from the following countries were the founding members of the Council: AMITOM countries (France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey), Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, California. These countries have since been joined by Egypt, Japan, China, South Africa and Peru, and by AMITOM's associate members in Algeria, Iran, Hungary, Malta, Russia, Syria and Ukraine.

WPTC organises the World Processing Tomato Congresses and ISHS Symposiums on the Processing Tomato every two years. The last ones were held in Greece in June 2018 and the next will take place in San Juan, Argentina in March 2020 (www.worldtomatocongress.com).
