NPS has developed genetically modified purple-fleshed tomatoes, to contain the high levels of anti-oxidants and anthocyanins normally found in fruits such as blueberries and blackberries.
Many independent studies show that antioxidants and anthocyanins can reduce incidence of cancer, improve cardiovascular function and improve health and well-being. Lab studies also suggest these compounds could help alleviate irritable bowel syndrome.
Although purple-skinned tomato varieties exist, they do not accumulate useful levels of these compounds within the fruit.
We want to bring the benefits of our tomatoes to the consumer. We need innovative growers and processors who can help us to create new tomato products.
If you can help, do get in touch.
We are at the start of a long journey that we think will be enormously exciting and rewarding.
If you have something to offer and would like to travel with us, then we’d love to hear from you.
