How can be sure we are not disappointing the expectations of our craftsmen regarding the unique goodness of the Vesuvius tomatoes? By way of a series of checks carried out throughout the entire production process and followed by random samplings all year round. Let’s discover together the high quality standards of Ciao – Il Pomodoro di Napoli!

Italian tomato is unique

The Italian tomato and in particular that from Southern Italy is a product unique in the world that must be protected from imitations and Italian sounding practices (foreign products marketed overseas with names very similar to their Italian equivalent specifically chosen to confuse consumers, but not at all Italian).

The uniqueness of South Italy products originates from a scrupulous know-how.

Ciao – Il Pomodoro di Napoli participates actively in the defense of Neapolitan values and culture by continuously checking the quality of its products before, during and even after the production process.
Checks of raw materials, crops, standards of color, shape and compactness of the processed tomatoes: a unique attention that we described  here 

But the checks do not end after the canning of our tomatoes.

In fact, once the production is completed, the end product enters quarantine or is stocked before being sold.
It is at this point that the spotlights are turned on the real “command room” of Ciao – Il Pomodoro di Napoli: the laboratory. It is in the laboratory that we verify all the steps of our work with a spot-check for each single production stage.

Every 45 days, by random samplings throughout the year, the production lots are opened and analyzed to verify the end product’s conformity to CMDO’s quality standards.

We check:
● the PH
● the tomato’s sugar degree,
● the color,
● the presence of skins,
● the density of preserves
● and the presence of mold.

All these checks ensure to our craftsmen the undisputed quality of a market leading product in 91 countries. That’s why ‘Ciao’ is not just a word known everywhere, but a true synonymous with quality in all the world’s languages!
