Farmers Meetings 2023

Farmers cultivating tomatoes for processing were invited for meetings organized by Magro Brothers in Malta and Gozo.

Analysis of the harvest for season 2022 were presented and discussed. Various concerns were aired by farmers which included mainly the increase in cultivation expenses such as fertilizers, plant health products and other related services. Magro Brothers’ CEO, Mr Chris Magro reassured all farmers present at both meetings, that the company will continue to invest in the cultivation of tomatoes for processing and announced various schemes which for season 2023 will increase the price of tomatoes by 45% over season 2022. He also confirmed that the tomato seeds which were distributed to all farmers for the coming season, were heavily subsidised by Magro Brothers.

Mr Magro concluded that Magro Brothers are committed to continue in their belief to produce and put on the market genuine Maltese products.
