The Ghana National Tomato Traders and Transporters Association (GNTTTA) is a private sector agro non-governmental organization with branches in all districts in Ghana and numbering about 100. Total number of traders exceeds 3000 wholesalers and distributors nationwide.

The trade, which is over a half century old, emanated from Kumasi in the Ashanti Region and Accra, which is the capital of Ghana. It is a traditional trade, guided by conventions, age-old practices and norms, which are on line with regulatory frameworks and policies of Ghana. The local trade is seasonal as is the cross border trade, which incorporates the Upper East of Ghana and Burkina Faso. The local trade runs from May 15 till December, whilst the cross border trade runs from December till mid-May.

Each day in the week from Monday to Saturday, an average of 60 vehicles leave the Paga exit point in the Upper East into districts in the South of Ghana distributing the vegetable to various district and metropolitan markets in the country. Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions take the bulk of the supply quota in terms of distribution whilst Takoradi and Eastern Region follow in terms of volume of supplies and consumption. Contribution to the State in terms of revenue is huge and this is appreciated by the various revenue collection agencies in Ghana.
