Mutti San Marzano Peeled tomatoes are deliciously juicy and have a robust red colour and a dense texture. San Marzano tomatoes have been awarded the EU’s Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) for their unique nature. They need little introduction among the connoisseurs.
This variety originates from the small town of San Marzano Sul Sarno near Naples, in the volcanic soil of Agro Sarnese Nocerino, in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius.
Thinner and pointed, with a much thicker and a bright red flesh, fewer seeds, and a stronger, sweeter and less acidic taste; these are the characteristic of San Marzano tomatoes, enhanced by the skilful transformation into peeled which preserves the fragrance of this ancient tomato.
The tomatoes are covered with a velvety sauce to preserve their freshness.
Mutti is a household name in Italy, and has been supplying the country’s homecooks with great quality tomato products for more than 150 years. In 1850 Giovanni Mutti pioneered a large-scale crop rotation method of farming, which allowed the soil to recover between each harvest. Today, the company grows tomatoes across the Italian Emilia Romagna region and produces tinned tomatoes, passata and concentrates.
