The World Processing Tomato Council (WPTC) is an international non-profit making organization representing the tomato processing industry worldwide. Currently, its members represent more than 95% of the volume of tomatoes processed worldwide.

The organization, created in 1998, is constituted by professional tomato growers and/or processors organizations representative of their production area. It is headquartered in Avignon (France) and is currently chaired by Dimitris Nomikos from Greece.



The WPTC and the Government of San Juan have decided to reschedule the 14th World Processing Tomato Congress and the 16th ISHS Symposium on the Processing Tomato to Sunday 8 to Thursday 12 November 2020. 

Please do re-book your travel and hotels according to the new dates, as well as re-organizing your plans outside the Congress itself.

All attendees will be contacted shortly with more information, and given the choice to transfer of your registration and/or sponsorship to the new dates or to be refunded.  

Meanwhile, for further information or any personal enquiry, you can contact the congress secretariat at
