Red Gold and Redpack brand tomatoes are processed and canned within hours of their picking at its Indiana facilities.
While some operators are turning to flexible packaging for their tomato products, there’s an immutable truth when it comes to preserving flavor. There’s nothing that assures a perfect red color and fresh from the field flavor than a traditional #10 can of Red Gold® or Redpack® tomatoes.
“While pouch products may claim an extended shelf life, the pouch inherently let’s in ambient light that can alter the color and flavor over time,” explains Red Gold’s Vice-President of Sales, David Halt. “Our #10 cans assure that the color and flavor of our tomato products are truly brilliant in color and flavor for more than two years.”
Red Gold perfected a technology for preparing its fresh pack tomatoes, Steam Sealed Flavor LocTM, that preserves the body of each tomato like no other during the processing of the fresh-packed Roma tomatoes before they go into the can.
While competitors use damaging steam to cook away the skin of the tomato, the Red Gold process maintains the firmness of its peeled tomatoes that offers an obvious and convincing visual difference. When compared side by side, there is no comparison in quality.
Red Gold also checks all the boxes in quality assurance for its canned products. All its products are Non-GMO Verified using no artificial colors or preservatives. Its fresh pack products are sustainably raised by family farmers living near Red Gold processing facilities thus they are literally fresh from the farm when the tomatoes are prepared for its Non-BPA lined cans.
The credit for flavor that is locked in can go to this American-owned company’s whose only mission is to serve the freshest, best-tasting tomatoes in the world.
Red Gold and Redpack tomato products check all the boxes when it comes to quality. Sticking with the packaging that has been the hallmark of color and fresh flavor for decades makes sense for decades to come.
