The 100 % Italian tomato is a combination of skill and hard work


Mutti has always focused solely on high-quality tomatoes. More accurately, we have been at it for 120 years, across four generations of the Mutti family. This means that in addition to new technologies, we also have a long history of traditional knowledge about tomato farming and preservation to support us. Managing to get a successful harvest year after year requires dedication. We certainly could not do it without a combination of experience, skill, technology, and sometimes, a little bit of luck.

Tomatoes, only tomatoes

Working with one main ingredient has made us its preeminent experts. But we are not satisfied with that. Together with our farmers, we are continually trying to improve what we do. Even after a century, we are still learning new things about growing tomatoes.

When you buy our product, you can be sure it is made using only carefully selected 100 % Italian tomatoes. They are always grown on open fields, in surroundings best suited for the individual tomato varieties. When everything is done right, you can really taste the difference – in all of our products.

Get to know our tomatoes

There is no such thing as “just another tomato.” Every variety of tomato has its own characteristics, and requires a special kind of growing area to flourish.

The stricter the requirements related to the characterisation of the finished product, the shorter the list of varieties which is highly characterised regarding specific aspects such as sweetness, freshness or sapidity.

The law of freshness

Ripe tomatoes can´t wait around. Our fields are always within an average of 60 miles  from our factories so that the fruit would not need to stay one extra moment under the sun. At Mutti, tomatoes are grown locally and reach the plant in one to three hours, so that the fresh, perfectly sun-ripened and carefully selected tomatoes can immediately be turned into delicious products.

Our entire production chain is governed by something we call the ‘law of freshness’. It means respecting the natural cycle. When the fruits are ready, they are picked using mechanical harvesting. After that, they get hauled quickly to the nearby factory and are processed there within the day.

Tomatoes are perfect as they are, and our delicate job is to make sure that their naturally great flavour is preserved as it is on the day they get picked – and stays that way all the way to your kitchen.

Did you know?

The ISO22005 certificate proves that all the tomatoes we use come from Italy. A transparent production chain and keeping a close relationship with our producers is one of our main principles. At any time, we can find out the origin of our tomatoes, the name of the farmer, and even the person who drove the mechanical harvester the day the tomato was picked.
