Guarantees and certifications
”Protecting the consumer means first and foremost respecting the environment, and this is guaranteed by the certification of our products. Certification is evidence of our responsible behaviour and it helps us avoid alterations and contamination. We carry out painstaking controls at each stage in the tomatoes' growth cycle, from farming to the finished product.”
For over a hundred years, Mutti has been combining research and innovation to guarantee the optimal quality of our tomatoes. In 1999, we were the first company to be awarded Integrated Production Certification by the auditing agency Check Fruit. This certification is invaluable, as it demonstrates that both Mutti and the farmers who grow the tomatoes are fully compliant with a series of very strict control procedures. Mutti is committed to overseeing plots of land and crop culture, analysing tomatoes as soon as they arrive at the factory, applying the traceability principle to each batch of tomatoes and tracking the product right up to the delivery. In addition, we ensure constant monitoring of the seeds used, the plants in the nurseries and the plantations in over 200 partner farming estates. In 2001, Mutti also received the certification to prove that there are no GMOs in its products. This significant documentation certifies our eradication of crop contamination, achieved through the checks we carry out on the soil, plants, fresh tomatoes and finished products.
Mutti's passion for tomatoes is based on three watchwords: quality, transparency and reliability.
Dedicated to upholding these three principles and ensuring optimum quality standards, Mutti only uses tomatoes from Italy, selecting high quality raw ingredients and rigorously monitoring every single stage in the production process. This commitment to guaranteeing quality for our customers relies upon a specific set of conditions: solid coordination with farming organisations and farmers, strict checks when tomatoes arrive at the factory, a very short waiting time for the batches, and finally, a way to reward the farmers who stand out for producing high quality tomatoes. Over ten years ago, this quest for innovation and quality led Mutti to launch a unique initiative, whereby we award the Pomodorino d'oro (Golden Tomato) quality award to farmers who produce the best tomatoes for that season.
