THE ART OF PERFECTION
PRESERVED FOR YOUR TABLE

The ideal climate and rich soil in the Mediterranean area provide the best natural conditions for the growth of tomatoes of premium quality. Tomato varieties with compact pulp, strong peel, and a sweet and sour taste are perfect for processing into various canned tomatoes whole or in pieces.

Preserving the freshness of the tomatoes

The peculiarities of European and Italian tomatoes are linked to the traditions of the specific territories where they grow, and it is important to protect them as well as raise awareness of their characteristics so that the consumer can learn to recognise and appreciate them. 

Passion & Expertise

Italy and the European Union have always been in the vanguard regarding food safety and the quality of food products. To meet this challenge, the EU has adopted the farm to fork strategy.

Origin & History

ANICAV was one of the first associations to draw up a handbook of good hygiene practices for the production of canned tomatoes, which was approved by the Italian Ministry of Health.

Healthy & Versatile

Starting from the simple, but incomparable, tomato sauce for a tasty pasta dish or to flavour a pizza, tomatoes can be used with meat, fish, eggs and cheese, and even for dessert.

Golden properties

The tomatoes used by the tomato-processing industry are harvested only when they are fully ripe, and their flesh is red and juicy but still firm enough to be processed.

Food Safety & Environmental Sustainability

A Production process perfected over time

The production process for canned tomatoes, whole or in pieces is still based on traditional methods, but today uses modern production lines to ensure higher quality and food safety.

At the end of processing, the preserved tomatoes are ready for the final meters of the conveyor belt for labelling and packing in cartons. Next stop, home kitchens and gourmet restaurants all around the world.
