Mexico: Tomatoes and Products Annual
Assuming normal growing conditions for open-field and shade house cultivation, as well continued greenhouse technology use, Post forecasts Mexico’s 2023 fresh tomato production at 3.87 million metric tons (MMT), a marginal increase over the Government of Mexico’s (GOM) official 2022 production estimate of 3.8 MMT. Despite adverse weather conditions in some major producing areas, to date, Mexican tomato production has not been adversely affected. Sinaloa remains Mexico’s largest tomato-producing state and accounts for 22 percent of total production, followed by San Luis Potosi, Michoacán, Zacatecas, Jalisco. Mexican tomato exports to the United States will remain strong due to robust supplies and flat domestic consumption.
