Where ever you need the taste of fresh tomatoes.
Chopped Tomatoes, Tomato Puree, Sieved Tomatoes and Peeled Tomatoes are the Mutti Tomato Essentials. Different in terms of color, taste and texture, each product has its own character and personality. Chopped Tomatoes have a bright red color, a texture rich with the finely minced pieces and an extraordinary fresh taste.
How is it made?
After the selection phase, the best tomatoes are crushed at room temperature (approx. 20°C) according to the patented Mutti® method that remains a closely guarded secret to this day.
The cans are filled with pulp at a temperature of approx. 80°C. They are then closed and pasteurized at 90°C for about an hour.
It takes 5 kilos of tomatoes to make 1 kilo of chopped tomatoes.

For us, sustainability means respect for the land
Cooperation with WWF Italy
Mutti has worked closely with the WWF in Italy to help farmers find sustainable ways to reduce their water consumption and CO2 emissions. The Italian WWF not only set goals, but it also allowed farmers to analyze and review data to identify what they can do. For example, the organization recommended the use of special sensors that recognize the moisture content of the soil and provide useful information to support efficient water use.
Mutti invested in technology, education, and technical support for farmers and agricultural organizations. Even after our five-year project came to an end, we are still as committed as ever to minimizing our environmental impact and improving every step of our production.
