U.S. International Trade CommissionWashington, DC 20436www.usitc.govMonitoring of U.S. Imports of TomatoesInvestigation No. 332-350Publication 3738November 2004


PrefaceSection 316 of the North American Free-Trade Agreement Implementation Act (NAFTAImplementation Act), Public Law 103-182, requires the U.S. International TradeCommission (Commission) to monitor U.S. imports of "fresh or chilled tomatoes" and "freshor chilled peppers, other than chili peppers," until January 1, 2009. In response, theCommission instituted investigation No. 332-350, Monitoring of U.S. Imports of Tomatoes,and investigation No. 332-351, Monitoring of U.S. Imports of Peppers, under section 332(g)of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1332(g)).This report on the Commission's monitoring investigation covers tomatoes for fresh-marketuse and for processing. The purpose of this monitoring, as expressed in the NAFTAImplementation Act, is to permit the Commission to conduct an expedited investigation and,if appropriate, recommend to the President provisional relief should a petition for relief befiled under section 202 of the Trade Act of 1974 with respect to imports from all countries,or a petition requesting such relief be filed under section 302 of the NAFTA ImplementationAct with respect to imports from Canada or Mexico. Generally, such provisional relief wouldremain in effect pending completion of the investigation by the Commission and the takingof final action by the President.This report contains statistical information gathered by the Commission on the U.S. tomatoindustry in the course of its monitoring. This information includes (1) consumption and tradedata (including U.S. imports and U.S. exports) and (2) other industry data (including U.S.production quantity, value, unit value, and harvested area; U.S. cost-of-production estimates;shipments; quantities available at major shipping points; and average U.S. retail andshipping-point prices). The information presented in this report on the U.S. tomato industrywas obtained from a number of sources, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture, theU.S. Department of Commerce, the Florida Tomato Committee, the University of FloridaCooperative Extension Service, and various other State agencies. This report principallyreports 1999-2003 data and partial-year data for 2003 and 2004. 11Nothing in this report should be construed to indicate how the Commission would find in aninvestigation conducted under other statutory authority covering the same or similar subject matter.

HighlightsThe following are highlights of the statistical data collected on tomatoes for fresh-market use andprocessing for the 1999-2003 period, with particular emphasis on 2002 and 2003.Fresh-market Tomatoes! Apparent U.S. consumption of fresh-market tomatoes has remained stable in recent years,with U.S. production and exports of fresh-market tomatoes trending downward but importsrising dramatically. U.S. imports remain significant relative to production, accounting fortwo-fifths of consumption in 2003. Principal U.S. trading partners for fresh-market tomatoesare Mexico and Canada. Nogales, AZ continues as the primary entry point for tomatoes fromMexico, with the bulk of such shipments entered during the Florida growing season. Detroitand Seattle continue as the primary entry points for tomatoes from Canada, with the bulk ofthese shipments entered during those months coinciding with peak domestic production inCalifornia and the rest of the United States. Florida and California remain the primarysources for U.S. fresh-market tomato production.! Apparent U.S. consumption fell by 4 percent to 2.3 million metric tons in 2003, down from2.4 million metric tons in 2002; consumption in 2003 was valued at $2.1 billion (table 1).The ratio of import volume to consumption in 2003 was 41 percent, up from 36 percent in2002. U.S. production of tomatoes for fresh-market use was down by 11 percent from1.7 million metric tons in 2002 to 1.5 million metric tons in 2003 (table 1). The value ofproduction rose slightly from $1.18 billion in 2002 to $1.2 billion in 2003, with a unit valueof $0.81 per kilogram in 2003.! Florida and California have been the two states with the largest amount of production offresh-market tomatoes since 1999, accounting for 43 percent and 28 percent, respectively,of total U.S. production volume of tomatoes for fresh-market use in 2003 (table 26). Otherstates with significant production volume during 1999-2003 included Virginia, Ohio,Tennessee, and South Carolina. Fresh tomatoes are harvested in Florida during October-June, in California primarily during June-November, and in most other States duringMarch-September. U.S. harvested area of fresh-market tomatoes decreased 7 percent from120,400 acres in 2002 to 111,670 acres in 2003 (table 26). A drop in California productionfrom 2002 to 2003 resulted in tighter supplies and higher prices.! U.S. exports of fresh-market tomatoes fell by 5 percent from 150,640 metric tons in 2002 to142,461 metric tons in 2003 (table 1). U.S. export volume was up by 15 percent duringJanuary-June 2004 as compared with exports during the corresponding months in 2003 (table3). Canada was the leading market for U.S. exports of fresh-market tomatoes throughout the1999-2003 period, accounting for 88 percent of the total volume (87 percent of value) in2003.! U.S. imports of fresh-market tomatoes rose by 9 percent from 860,097 metric tons in 2002to 939,257 metric tons in 2003 (table 1). Imports were valued at $1.0 billion in 2003, up by32 percent from the value in 2002. Imports were down by 6 percent in volume duringJanuary-June 2004 as compared with imports during the corresponding months in 2003.Mexico, the leading supplier of imports throughout the 1999-2003 period, accounted for84 percent, by volume, of total imports of fresh-market tomatoes in 2003 (table 5). U.S.1


imports of fresh-market tomatoes from Canada rose by 30 percent in volume from 2002 to2003 and accounted for 14 percent of total imports in 2003. The bulk of imports fromCanada are believed to have been greenhouse-grown tomatoes.! U.S. imports of cherry tomatoes fell by 20 percent from 2002 to 2003 and amounted to33,490 metric tons in 2003, with Mexico accounting for 97 percent of total imports in 2003(table 6). Import value rose by 15 percent from $50.3 million in 2002 to $58.0 million in2003. Imports of cherry tomatoes were up in January-June 2004 as compared with thecorresponding months in 2003. U.S. imports of roma tomatoes amounted to 346,531 metrictons in 2003, up by 10 percent from 316,397 metric tons in 2002 (table 7). Mexico accountedfor 99 percent annually of total imports during the 1999-2003 period. Imports were downslightly in January-June 2004 as compared with imports during January- June 2003.! U.S. imports of fresh-market tomatoes from Mexico, entered on a July-June crop-year basis,amounted to 747,778 metric tons in July 2003-June 2004, down by 8 percent from814,333 metric tons in July 2002-June 2003 (table 9). In recent years, about two-thirds oftotal annual U.S. imports of fresh-market tomatoes from Mexico entered through the NogalesCustoms District. Most of the remainder entered through the San Diego District. In recentcrop-years, more than four-fifths of total average annual imports from Mexico entered duringJanuary-April, overlapping the middle of the Florida shipping season.! U.S. imports of fresh-market tomatoes from Canada, entered on a July-June crop-year basis,rose by 60 percent from 115,114 metric tons in 2002/03 to 184,150 metric tons in 2003/04(table 10). During July 2003-June 2004, about 48 percent of total U.S. import volume offresh-market tomatoes from Canada entered through the Detroit and Buffalo CustomsDistricts. During the same July 2003-June 2004 period, 58 percent of total crop-year importvolume from Canada entered during March-June, coinciding with the latter half of thenormal Florida shipping season.! U.S. imports of fresh-market tomatoes from the Netherlands (the third largest import source),entered on a July-June crop-year basis, fell by 31 percent from 20,039 metric tons in 2002/03to 13,925 metric tons in 2003/04 (table 11). During July 2003-June 2004, nearly 60 percentof total imports from the Netherlands entered through the New York Customs District andabout three-fifths of total crop-year imports entered during November-June, coinciding withthe entire normal Florida shipping season.! Average U.S. retail prices of fresh-market tomatoes have trended upward in recent years,from $1.43 per pound annually in July 2002-June 2003 to $1.48 per-pound annually in July2003-June 2004 (table 36). Average shipping–point prices remained steady at $0.35 perpound in 2002/03 and 2003/04. These prices usually vary a great deal throughout the season.Processed Tomatoes! U.S. production of processed tomatoes has trended downward in recent years, with U.S.imports also falling but exports rising rapidly in 2003. Canada and Mexico remain theprincipal markets for U.S. processed-tomato exports and the principal sources for U.S.imports, although there have been significant exports to Japan, Italy, and Korea along with2


significant import volumes from Spain, Morocco, and Israel in recent years. Californiaremains the primary source for U.S. production of processing tomatoes.! U.S. production of tomatoes for processing fell by 16 percent from 10.6 million metric tonsin 2002 to 8.9 million metric tons in 2003 (table 2). The value of production was estimatedat $575.4 million in 2003, down by 15 percent from an estimated $678.7 million in 2002.Unit values trended slightly downward throughout the 1999-2003 period.! California, Indiana, and Ohio have been the leading states producing fresh tomatoes forprocessing in recent years, with production in these states together accounting for 98 percentof total production volume in 2003 (table 28). Domestic harvested area of tomatoes forprocessing fell by 6 percent from 311,800 acres in 2002 to 293,720 acres in 2003; Californiaaccounted for 93 percent of total harvested area in 2003.! U.S. exports of processed tomatoes were 182,557 metric tons in 2003, up by 23 percent from148,799 metric tons in 2002 (table 2). Canada, Mexico, Japan, Italy, and Korea were theleading U.S. export markets for processed tomatoes in 2003, accounting for 81 percent oftotal export volume that year (table 4). Export volume during January-June 2004 was downby 7 percent over the amount exported during the corresponding period of 2003.! In 2003, U.S. imports of processed tomatoes fell by 20 percent, from 49,675 metric tons in2002 to 39,928 metric tons (table 25). Imports were valued at $52.0 million in 2003, downby 12 percent from $59.2 million in 2002. Spain, Morocco, Mexico, and Canada were theleading sources of imported processed tomatoes in 2003, together accounting for 56 percentof import volume in that year. Imports during January-June 2004 were down slightly fromthe level during the corresponding period of 2003.! In 2000, U.S. imports of processed tomatoes fell dramatically by 71.4 percent, from126,088 metric tons in 1999 to 36,119 metric tons in 2000. The reason for this decline wasa Federal Court ruling that changed the HTS item subheading under which certain processedtomato products, previously entered under one item, were now to be recorded under anotheritem.3
