France: Tomatoes “Made in Manche”

Produced in the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, in Brecey, on 17 hectares, the tomatoes “made in Manche” have been harvested for the first time.

The project was conceived at the end of 2014, by a French entrepreneur and a Dutch farmer. They built a production greenhouse above ground, with temperatures between 69.8 and 77°F daily. It is home to 520,000 tomato plants and it is the largest one-piece greenhouse built in one go in Europe.

About 100 people work in the greenhouse. Between 9,000 and 12,000 tomatoes per year should be harvested. They will be distributed to supermarkets through buying groups, in Normandy and then all the way to Brittany and Paris.
