Tomato Pomace Processing Systems

Tomato pomace is the co-product of tomato manufacturing. It is the remains of tomatoes after they have been processed for their juice, ketchup, soup or other various uses. Sometimes, tomato pomace is used as feed for livestock as it is a great source of fiber, B vitamins, and vitamin A. This is the case for almost 95% of tomato pomace in California, where most tomato processing takes place. Tomato pomace contains a large amount of water, and thus is more expensive to ship due to its weight. Most of the rest of the tomato pomace that comes from processing in other regions of the US is landfilled.

Many tomato processing plants may look for an alternative to landfilling tomato pomace as well as making it easier to ship. This is where The ONIX Corporation comes in. Many industries that process tomatoes where tomato pomace is an unwanted co-product look for solutions deal with it. Tomato pomace can often benefit from drying, milling, bagging, or pelleting.
