Basic cooking skills can save your life

The Tomato Foundation is passionate in its quest to grow the love for tomatoes. We are a non-profit NGO proud to promote tomato every way we can. Tomato is the most consumed fruit in the world; a beautiful savoury fruit with an immense nutritional payload and the natural tasty centre of a healthy balanced diet.

Our social purpose is to support global efforts to reduce the risk and impact of preventable, diet-related diseases - which account for over 60% of all deaths worldwide. We believe in lifestyle-as-medicine. By promoting back-to-basics cooking skills we aim to inspire and encourage people, young and old, to take control of their diet and protect their health.

Our tool, our storyteller, our champion is the versatile, health-packed superstar of food everywhere - the tomato!
