Peeled tomatoes of Naples: a processing method unique in the world 1024 550 cmdo

Peeled tomatoes of Naples: a processing method unique in the world

What makes so precious and traditional the processing method of our peeled tomatoes? Let’s discover together four of the reasons that make the working of our peeled tomatoes so unique

A method inspired by the way in which Southern Italy’s housewives traditionally preserve tomatoes for the winter. This is the inspiration behind the working process that makes unique the Southern Italy’s tomatoes such as those of Ciao.

But what’s so special about this methodology?

Here are three useful details to tell about it that cannot go unnoticed.

The processing of tomatoes from Southern Italy is unique because:

the tomato harvesting process is still tied to artisan dynamics, and is a true ritual that is renewed every year during the summer months.

the work in the fields and the contact with the farming community of the canning industry remain indispensable and even if technology will never replace tradition, it can be used to perfect and preserve the quality of the final product.

the canning process takes place immediately after the harvest and not longer than 6 hours after the fruit has been detached from the plant. This ensures that our tomatoes can maintain all the characteristics of a freshly harvested product even after 3 years of storage.

In short, the quality of the peeled tomatoes from Southern Italy is the result of an inseparable combination of agricultural know-how and technological progress that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.
