Agriculture Minister Shalom Simhon on Friday requested that his ministry and the Tax Authority immediately suspend import duties on foreign-grown tomatoes to help alleviate the shortage of native-grown tomatoes.

The suspension of import duties on tomatoes will allow the quick importation of up to 2000 tons of tomatoes that will help reduce the price of the produce that has jumped dramatically in recent months as a result of the local shortage.The tomato shortage is temporary and will end within three weeks, according to Simhon.
