Cuban tomato boost

This article was originally published in Foodnews

AS PART of Cuba's plans to become less reliant on food imports, workers in a canned fruit and vegetable plant in the province of Granma have boosted production by processing more than 2 000 tonnes of tomato from the 2010 harvest so far. The plant is processing 24 hours per day in various shifts to help cope with a 'peak' in the supply of raw material following an earlier than usual harvest caused by the current hot weather conditions. Over 8 400 tonnes of tomatoes are expected to go for processing this year in the province, compared with 11 000 tonnes processed in 2009, the biggest increase the province has seen in recent years.
