What does it take to produce the tastiest, most nutritious canned tomatoes? A lot of care, hard work, and dedication is first and foremost. However, the below three topics are KEY when moving full steam ahead to can the PERFECT tomato!

FARM TO FORK

California produces 95% of all tomatoes in the United States. Why is that you ask? Our Mediterranean climate of cool nights and warm days combined with rich, nutrient dense soil is the ideal conditions for growing world class canning tomatoes. In addition, our operation is just miles away from America’s Farm Fork to Fork Capital making it truly the best spot for cultivating sweet, ripe, canning tomatoes.

LOCATION IS KEY

We take great pride in being able to deliver high quality products by canning our family farmers’ tomatoes at their peak of freshness. Over 95% of growers are within a 17-mile radius of our tomato cannery. This proximity allows us to pack perfectly red, vine-ripened tomatoes in just 5 hours or less for optimal flavor and nutrient content.

A BETTER TOMORROW

Sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do. From our steam peeling process, to reducing water usage, and utilizing rail networks to reach our customers, every step has specific measures in place to reduce our environmental impact.  It is prudent that our practices are socially responsible to do our part towards creating a better world for generations to come. 

Look for steam peeled when purchasing your private label canned tomatoes.
