New Organic Tomatoes from Pacific Foods Capture Bold Backyard Flavor in BPA-Free Cartons

One of the most frequently used pantry staples, canned tomatoes, is getting a dramatic upgrade from Pacific Foods this month. The family-owned company is

introducing five Organic Tomato varieties packaged in BPA-free cartons. It’s promising flavor so good home cooks will notice the difference and think twice about the tomatoes they use both for fresh applications – like bruschetta and salsa – and amazing sauces, stews, soups and more.

“Most people think all packaged tomatoes are the same but it’s simply not true,” said Kimberly Nieves, brand manager at Pacific Foods. “Thoughtful ingredient selection and cooking method can noticeably elevate the flavor of packaged tomatoes, even when cooked into recipes. At Pacific, we start with the most flavorful variety then treat it with care to bring out the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity, natural texture and rich color.”

Not Your Garden Variety Tomatoes

Pacific’s simple recipe features Roma variety tomatoes, preferred by home canners for their full flavor and meatiness. Gentle steam peeling removes skins without the use of lye, while a “flasheat” preservation process reduces cook time by 90 percent compared to canned varieties. Authentic flavor, texture and nutrition are sealed in with no chemicals, additives or anything artificial.

“Our tomatoes live up to the same standards for quality as all of our other cooking staples like broth, stock and beans,” added Nieves. “We use as few ingredients as possible, making sure each one has a purpose to let the true flavor shine through. One bite of our tomatoes and you’ll taste the difference.”

Pacific’s Organic Tomato varieties include Diced; Strained; Crushed; Crushed with Onion, Garlic & Basil and Tomato Sauce. Naturally free of GMOs and gluten-free, they’re packaged in BPA-free, shelf-stable cartons and available now at natural food stores and conventional grocers nationwide (SRP $3.99-$4.99 for 26.46 oz.).

The new design is a perfect reflection of who we are and what we value.”

Patchouli Shampoo + Conditioner – Patchouli is fantastic for itchy scalp and psoriasis. The fragrance is said to be grounding and reduces anxiety. Perfect for any type of hair. $8

Hormone Balancing Deodorant – A Hormone Balancing Deodorant for times when your hormones fluctuate, like during and after pregnancy, during stressful situations and while experiencing symptoms of peri- and post-menopause. Free of aluminum; not an antiperspirant; allows the body to sweat naturally. $10.50

Businesses and individuals can apply directly to the opportunity they’re interested while consumers can read through the educational blog that focuses on health and the benefits of Dirty Girl Farm’s products and ingredients.
