Crushed tomatoes with basil
Fresh & Fragrant
Mutti® Crushed Tomatoes (Polpa) with Basil starts with sun-ripened 100% Italian tomatoes from the Emilia Romagna region. Picked when perfectly ripe, cold crushed, and processed with our patented technique to capture the flavor of just-harvested tomatoes. To this we add fragrant Italian basil and a pinch of Mediterranean sea salt. Excellent for a fast tomato sauce, gazpacho, or even a Mutti® Mary.
Vibrant red color
Also suitable for long cooking times
How is it made?
The tomatoes are chopped at room temperature using a proprietary method.
They are then heated and canned. After this, the cans are pasteurized at 90°C for one 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.
