Ketchup from Mutti, Italy (made from 100% Italian tomatoes)
Only Italian tomatoes go into Mutti ketchup. 2.2 kg of fresh tomatoes are used to make 1 kg of ketchup, which gives it a sweet, tart and a bit spicy, robust tomato flavor. It’s also made without the high-fructose corn syrup that is in most ketchup and has no added starch or thickener that would artificially alter its consistency.

In Parma, since 1899 tomato has meant Mutti. Here tomato is the result of deep interaction between man and the land.
All of Mutti's tomatoes grow up around their plant, within an area of 130km on average, in order to ensure that each single tomato could arrive fresh directly from the field to the production line without losing taste and texture. In fact, the whole production cycle is driven by a sort of “rule of freshness” which is fundamental for them. For example, the irrigation process is designed in order to reach the double objective to avoid wasting water and, at the same time, to improve the health of plants.
The natural features of the ground, as well as the favorable weather and the huge availability of water let the tomato production be reach and healthy. Then, experience and know-how in seeds selection give the possibility to improve the quality of tomato season by season.
QUALITY CHECKED / GMO FREE
Mutti has always worked to guarantee the quality of its tomatoes, pairing research and innovation for more than 100 years.
In fact, in 1999, it was the first company to win the Integrated Production Certificate, issued by the Check Food auditing agency, which bore witness to Mutti and its tomato farms’ respect for some very strict quality control procedures.
In addition to this certification, Mutti was certified GMO-free in 2001. This is another important goal that bears witness to the lack of contaminants on its plants. It was obtained by checked the plants and by analyzing the plants, fresh tomato and finished product.
The quality and reliability of Mutti products are also guaranteed by its continued work to maintain high quality standards by selecting the best raw material – only Italian tomatoes are used – and by carefully monitoring its production process
WHY WE LOVE THE TOMATO!
The richness of the earth and the warmth of the sun have combined to provide us with a unique fruit.
Tasty and inviting, the tomato is low in calories and rich in nutrients.
It is made up primarily of lycopene. It is usually a bright red color and is known to be good for us.
Its antioxidants keep on working even after its cooked. In fact, cooking makes them stronger. It is also available in large quantities in tomato concentrate.
Lycopene is a substance that is better absorbed when it’s eaten with fats: pour a little oil in your sauce is like adding pleasure to pleasure and makes it sort of elixir for a long life.
But the magic of tomatoes doesn't stop there. This fruit is an excellent source of vitamins A and C and of mineral salts like potassium.
With tomatoes, taste and health go hand in hand
