Do you like Tomatoes? Have you ever even tried one? I grew up in a home where both my parents worked and my sister and I were raised on fast food. I had gone my whole life (over 30 years) without eating tomatoes. I've now learned that there are so many different ways you can incorporate tomatoes. With those different ways, come different tastes. Fresh tomatoes on a salad, juicy sliced tomatoes on a burger, sun-dried tomatoes (one of my fav ways of adding them to pasta), and then there is my favorite - fish ceviche with tomatoes! Tomatoes are one of those foods that many may not know much about. Where they come from, how they are handled and cared for. The Florida Tomato Committee has just launched to help consumers learn more about how the Florida tomato family of growers carefully and thoughtfully grow Florida tomatoes on family run farms that make them so nutritious, delicious and different from the rest.
What makes Florida tomatoes so good...and so good for you?
About the Florida Tomato Committee
The Florida Tomato Committee is a Federal Marketing Order that was established pursuant to Federal Marketing Agreement and Order No. 966 as amended regulating the handling of tomatoes and has authority over the tomatoes grown in Florida’s production area comprising the counties of Pinellas, Hillsborough, Polk, Osceola, Brevard and all counties situated south. It affects tomatoes that are shipped outside the regulated area, which includes that portion of the state of Florida situated east of the Suwanee River and south of the Georgia border.
The Committee funds research and development projects and marketing promotions that focus on maximizing Florida tomato movement, including consumer and marketing research and customized marketing programs.
