Portugal, southern Spain, even Southern Italy, have climates suitable for field growing at low cost with very small inputs. An article was posted here a while back showing DSM asking the Netherlands tomato growers to rise to the challenge, indicating that this is also a source A tomato needs zero frost, sunshine and water. Fertiliser can be artificial or natural ( Mine are 100% home made fertiliser from composted leaves, particularly comfrey and nettles). Northern Italy has frosts, hard frosts, and a relatively short period of ideal weather, therefore is not a major source of tomato. The Dutch grow only in glasshouses, giving them the ability to grow over much longer periods, using highly automated care.
Where is FF manufactured? Ask yourself that. Look at what DSM say about sourcing locally. Look at the crop yields of the locale. Then add it up and put it in business terms... Drivel is what you all talk when you hype this thing up drawing people to the wrong conclusion.. btya
