And of course, we’d like to see the Mutti product as the hero of each recipe – they deserve to be the star of the show! We can’t wait to see what great recipes you come up with!

Mutti Polpa Finely Chopped Tomatoes

The simplest way to give your food the fresh flavour of just picked, summer tomatoes. Our Polpa is unique as it’s chopped especially finely – this means it has a rich and consistent texture with an abundance of tomato pieces in every bit. It is a combination of the juice of the tomato and the pulpy part of the tomato (the part with the most flavour!)– it’s ideal for low and slow cooking as well high temperatures and short cooks. In fact, it’s even delicious used straight from the tin with no cooking at all to really capture its fresh flavour!

Mutti Passata

Sieved Tomatoes

Made with delicious sun-ripened tomatoes that have been sieved and slightly reduced for a little added thickness, Mutti Passata is free of skins and seeds and has a smooth, velvety texture. It is ideal to add a little luxurious touch and lovely creaminess to dishes. It maintains its vibrant red colour even once cooked and is ideally suited to short cooking times. Its slightly sweet flavour and unique texture mean it makes a delicious sauce even when used on its own straight from the bottle.

Mutti Double Concentrated Tomato Puree

Double Concentrate

This concentrate uses the same uncompromised quality tomatoes as in our chopped and peeled products, so the bold flavour is unmatched! In fact every 130g tube contains the equivalent of 700g of fresh tomatoes that have been concentrated down to make a soft paste with a dense texture. It is, of course, well suited to long cooking times but is equally suited to short cooking times or straight from the tube with no cooking at all in dressings, dips and sauces.

Mutti Peeled Tomatoes

Whole peeled tomatoes

We gently steam and peel our tomatoes to ensure these maintain a firm and fleshy texture and their natural, delicate flavour. These are also the most versatile product – they can be used sliced, chopped, crushed, blitzed or left whole depending on your recipe and are suited for long and short cooking times (or straight from the tin!). In the tin, the tomatoes are immersed in a smooth passata, giving you the added option to decide whether you use the fruits together with their sauce of if you use them separately.
