Traveling to Salinas Valley in California to visit our tomato fields is an integral part of our quality assurance. We meet with owner Tom Cortopassi – he is the third generation in their family business. Their family came to Califorinia from Italy to find the best climate to produce their families proven methods. They were inspired to create the best fresh-packed tomato in the world. As we walked the fields to inspect the tomatoes that were going into our family sauces, we were amazed with the color & quality of them – they were beautiful. Tasting them in the field, they were bright red, full of juice with such intense flavor. Stanislaus & Ynot have the same family values & commitment to quality. Together, we are pleased to bring you an ingredient that our grandfather would be proud of.
