The formulation of this Philippine National Standard for Tomatoes, PNS/BAFPS 26:2006 was initially drafted by the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Product Standards (BAFPS) with reference to US Standards for Grades of Tomatoes (1997), Canadian Grades and Standards for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables (1997), Proposed Draft Codex Standards for Tomatoes (Alinorm 04/27/35), Food Terminal Inc. Quality and Grade Specifications for Tomatoes (1981) and CBT Product Grades, Packaging, Storage and Seasonality (1994).

This standard was reviewed by the BAFPS’ Technical Committee prior to its presentation in a public consultation in Cagayan de Oro City, the major producer of this commodity. Comments from the stakeholders were carefully evaluated and were inputted accordingly in the final draft.

The Technical Committee created by BAFPS for this purpose was composed of experts from DA-AMAS, DA-NAFC, PHTRC-UPLB, IPB-UPLB and the Vegetables Growers Association.
