Tomatoes are a seasonal fruit worldwide where at times the markets will be flooded with tomatoes and there are times when the product will be scarce and expensive in the market.   The company will incorporate a dried tomato in its original shape which consumers have the flexibility of grating it when preparing their meals.  The current preserved tomatoes are in the form of tomato puree and tomato soup powders. This product will be more useful in rural areas where households do not have preserving facilities such as refrigerators.
