The first small tomato processing plant Founded in 1896, Rodolfi Mansueto S.p.A. is one of the oldest Italian industries producing chopped and crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, sauces, passata and tomato powder out of red, fresh, sound and natural tomatoes. It Is Here That Remigio Rodolfi, Uncle Of Mansueto, creates the first factory dedicated to the transformation of the tomato. For 120 years Rodolfi was, in the heart of the Food Valley, processing over 250,000 tons of fresh tomatoes in the three production plants of Ozzano Taro, Fontanini, and Castelguelfo. Italy is famous for its wide variety of tomatoes such as Cherry Tomatoes, Datterini Tomatoes, Plum Tomatoes (Roma variety) and Round Tomatoes used for diced and tomato paste. These varieties of tomatoes are ideally used for sauces as they contain less seeds with a thick skin making them easy to peel. Tomatoes contain anti-inflammatory nutrients, a large content of antioxidants. The deep red colour in tomatoes is also associated to the Lycopene, which is a carotenoid pigment and it is widely known for its outstanding antioxidant content. Napoletana sauce also called Napoli sauce, is the collective name given to various basic tomato-based sauces derived from Italian cuisine, often served over or alongside pasta. Napoletana Tomato Sauce is an Italian tomato sauce with vegetables and onions. Aromatic tomato sauce made from 100% sun-mature Italian tomatoes and pure extra virgin olive oil, produced according to traditional recipes. The raw materials used are carefully selected and freshly processed. Thus, the fragrance and taste of the respective ingredients are intensified and emphasized. As with homemade sauces from fresh tomatoes, the color is bright red. Due to the heat process after filling, a very long shelf life of the product can be ensured. However, the freshness of the taste remains completely intact. Rodolfi does not use preservatives or colouring agents nor acid additives and are only refined with virgin olive oil, which emphasizes the intense aroma and taste of the respective ingredients.
