Tomato trade war will hit the Rio Grande Valley hard

MCALLEN, RGV – Famous fast food restaurants such as Wendy’s, Subway, and Taco Bell all use Mexican tomatoes in their food.

Large retailers such as Wal-Mart, HEB, and Kroger offer them to their customers as well.

According to estimates, one in every two tomatoes consumed in the United States is grown in Mexico. The majority of these are grown in the state of Sinaloa and cross through the Pharr port of entry in the Rio Grande Valley. By value, this trade was worth $532 million in 2017.

The popular red vegetable, a must in salads, salsas, and Italian food, could soon become more expensive after the United States announced that starting May 7, it will withdraw from the 2013 suspension agreement on fresh tomatoes.
