We took this tour of the tomato processing plant and found it fascinating. We started out by meeting the trucks at station where they are weighed and inspected. Then the trucks move up to a ramp and the tomatoes are dumped into a huge waterway where they are gravity fed down into the factory.
You can watch the video and get a nice overview of the process that takes a tomato from the field and it ends up in a can in your pantry.
