Los Gatos Tomato Products has earned a reputation for our commitment to quality, flavor, and service. From planting through processing we’re concentrating quality.
We produce only tomato paste! Our facility is highly automated with dual processing lines allowing great processing flexibility to zero in on customer specifications. The end result is great tasting, consistent tomato paste.
Los Gatos is a partnership of four family farming operations with deep roots in the Central Valley. We are all committed to the simple notion of passing our land and operations to future generations in bigger and better shape than we received it. We share the passion of feeding more people, with fewer resources.

The planting of tomatoes is complete and we expect the 2012 tomato processing season to begin here on July 6th. The field price for tomatoes settled at $69.40 per ton compared to $68.00 last season.
California remains the world’s top producer with a May 31, 2012 USDA crop estimate of 12.9 million tons on 260,000 acres. If the estimated total tons figure is achieved this would equate to an 8.4 % increase compared to the final production total of 2011.
The two other primary growing regions, China and Europe, are expected to reduce their production volumes in 2012.
