There’s no secret to our great tasting tomato products. We simply grow the reddest, sweetest tomatoes we can, pick them at the peak of freshness and pack them within 24 hours. The ingredients we use are hard work, good sense, and a desire to make the best tasting tomato products available.
Sure, there is a little more to it. It starts in the fields of our trusted family farms where we harvest the tomatoes at the peak of ripeness, load them on our trucks and make the same day journey to the canning plant in Northumberland.
Once the trucks arrive the tomatoes are immediately tested for color, weight, and ripeness. Only the best make it into the canning process. The tomatoes are washed and prepared for processing (crushed, sliced, diced or whole peeled). Ingredients, herbs and seasonings (if applicable) are added, and the tomato products are filled in cans. The heat from the canning process is just like the traditional canning methods you may use on your stove. We capture the vitamins, minerals and flavor at the peak of freshness so you can enjoy them all year long.
Each batch is cooked to Furmano’s quality standards. The products are tested a second time in line to assure proper color, texture and taste. After cooling, cans are dated and labeled and shipped to your favorite market. We deliver Furmano’s products fresh from our fields to your table.
