Italy: Italian Processed Tomato Overview

Italy is a world leading processed tomato producer, representing approximately 13 percent of the global production and 48 percent of Europe’s production, with a sector turnover of more than €3.2 billion. According to the latest data released by the National Association of the Canned Vegetables Industry (Anicav), Italy’s processed tomato production totaled 5.1 million metric tons (MMT) in 2016, a 5.5 percent decrease from the previous year, mainly due to adverse weather in central-southern provinces during summer. Italy is both a leading exporter and importer of tomato products.
