The harvested tomatoes, their integrity and ripeness positively checked, are brought to the factory where they undergo within just a very few hours the blanching and peeling process, but not before having passed a selection process entrusted to sophisticated machinery that discards the vegetables that do not meet the standards for size, fruit healthiness and color, and only after the various stages of washing.
After the peeling, the tomatoes are finally cut to be turned into pulp. The cutting machine is equipped with blades evenly spaced so as to obtain uniform cubes.
Perfectly sized cubes of 19 x 19 mm are then obtained from the tomatoes
After this step, the tomato will be canned by adding only partially evaporated tomato juice.
The tomato processing by steps:
blade cutting, and
addition of partially evaporated juice
