Tomatoes: Hawke’s Bay
At 148 Rosser Road in Hawke’s Bay, Wattie’s grow their very own variety of tomatoes to make most of their canned tomato products. This field of sun ripened tomatoes is one of many in Hawke’s Bay producing over 30,000 tonnes every year.
What makes their tomatoes special? They use a specially bred tomato seed for New Zealand, one that thrives in cooler, sometimes wetter conditions, which makes sure that they provide Kiwi’s with the best quality NZ Grown tomatoes.
