Those of us who grew up enjoying ketchup at nearly every meal, on eggs, sandwiches, French fries, hot dogs and hamburgers, meatloaf and as a condiment on dozens of other foods, were fairly astounded in 1992 when market research firms announced that salsa (including picante, enchilada, taco and similar chili-based sauces) had actually outpaced the consumption of ketchup in the USA.
Since that time, numerous market trends have emerged, many with a preference for utilizing processed tomatoes. In all market segments including retail chains, food service operators, and industrial food manufacturers, the nutritional value and flavor benefits of tomatoes are encouraging consumers and marketers into new product introductions: organic and conventional single serve and family-sized meals, ethnic foods, pizza, pasta sauces, frozen entrees, shelf-stable entrees, soups, stews, salad dressings, etc.
