Where ever you need the taste of fresh tomatoes.

Mutti® Finely Chopped Tomatoes (Polpa) are made with just two ingredients – sun-ripened 100% Italian tomatoes from the Emilia Romagna region and a pinch of Mediterranean sea salt. Picked when perfectly ripe, cold crushed, and processed with our patented technique to capture the flavor of just-harvested tomatoes.  So remarkably fresh, you can try them straight from the can!  Excellent for a fast tomato sauce, gazpacho, or even bruschetta.

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.
