There is a lot of energy in talk about food these days. Where and how it is grown, and how it is processed and packaged are all part of the wider view shoppers are looking for when choosing the items they bring home to their families. Shoppers are also looking for traditional ingredients, and diverse flavors. POMI Chopped and Strained tomato products, naturally sodium-free and high in lycopene, deliver all of these attributes in each unique package.
The authentic terroir and flavor is drawn from a specific region in Northern Italy. POMI tomatoes are grown by over 300 farmers that have collectively worked to bring sustainability into their farming and processing practice. Every detail has been attended to – each batch of chopped or strained tomatoes can be traced back to its roots via the code on the package, and the responsibly sourced packaging is even verified by a third party. Delicious recipes, beautifully photographed, are available on their website. Up next on my list – Spinach and Ricotta-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, made with POMI Chopped Tomatoes.
