Chopped tomatoes

Finely Chopped Tomatoes

The Mutti Chopped Tomatoes maintains all the freshness of freshly-harvested tomatoes. It’s a unique product because it is chopped especially finely for an abundance of tomato pieces in every bite and a rich, consistent texture. Mutti Polpa brings together the tomato juice and its most pulpy part, a feature which makes it ideally suited for long cooking times even at high temperatures, like in the oven. Alternatively, it captures the fresh flavour of perfectly ripe tomatoes so well that it can be used straight from the tin in dishes like bruschetta or salsas. It is also ideal for homemade pizza, for recipes with meat, vegetables and legumes and to dress fresh durum wheat pasta or egg pasta

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.

Now you know about our products – it’s time to cook.


Chopped Tomatoes contains more water than the passata or tomato paste. It can therefore also be used in recipes that call for long cooking times or high temperatures.

Ideal for: Sauces, stews, soups.
