OMAHA, NEB — ConAgra Foods, Inc. has introduced three organic tomato offerings: Hunt’s Organic Diced Tomatoes, Hunt’s Organic Tomato Sauce and Hunt’s Organic Tomato Paste.
“Organic food has undoubtedly earned a place in American households,” said Ryan Pintado-Vertner, senior brand manager, Hunt’s Canned, ConAgra Foods. “Our new Organic Hunt’s varieties are great additions to our existing Hunt’s business and provide more options to the 45% of consumers actively trying to include organic foods in their diet.”
ConAgra said Hunt’s Organic Diced Tomatoes are made with non-bioengineered ingredients, peeled using simple steam from hot water, chopped and packed in their own juice -- all within hours of picking. Hunt’s Organic Tomato Sauce and Hunt’s Organic Tomato Paste are made with natural, vine-ripened tomatoes, while Hunt’s Organic Tomato Sauce is simmered with salt, spices and natural flavors for seasoning, and contains no added sugar, corn syrup or other sweeteners.“For more than 100 years, Americans have looked to Hunt’s as the tomato expert,” Mr. Pintado-Vertner said. “That’s why we’re thrilled to be able to offer them great-tasting, convenient organic choices from a brand they have come to trust.”
