Global Tomato Congress, the leading event for the fresh tomato business, returns to Rotterdam on 16 May for a full day of discussions and networking, with sustainability top of the agenda

As the challenges of the past year continue to be felt, the Global Tomato Congress is back in Rotterdam with a programme filled with talks and discussions about how to safeguard the future of the fresh tomato business.  

GTC-Agenda announced

The theme of this year’s event is sustainability at a time of crisis – expert speakers will examine the best means of ensuring the future success of tomatoes, in the face of high costs, ToBRFV and the increasing impact of climate change.  

Global Tomato Congress assesses the current state of the category, gauging the effect of high energy costs on the global business and identifying the key challenges moving forward, including labour availability and cost, growing sustainability demands and falling household budgets.

We consider the overall economic sustainability of the category, look at the role of cooperatives and retailers and discuss how shortages of supply as seen in the UK can be avoided in the future. 

Attendees will hear how technologies are helping to reduce waste, lower costs, improve quality, boost productivity and offer greater predictive powers to growers, and how breeders are faring in the fight against ToBRFV and the development of superior taste.
