Contadina takes to heart the Mediterranean philosophy of cooking with passion, using only the finest ingredients to deliver rich and authentic flavours.
Contadina, a brand name known to American families for 100 years, began as a result of the German blockade in 1914. Finding themselves short of imported tomato supplies, three enterprising Italian immigrant families seized the opportunity and began producing tomato paste in White Plains, New York.
In 1916, a member of one of these families discovered that the good soil and dependable climate of California made it better than Italy's Parma Valley and the Naples peninsula for growing tomatoes.
Contadina symbolises the care and quality over many generations in making savoury dishes, whose tradition of excellence is carried on in Contadina packaged tomato products which include Crushed, Diced and Stewed Tomatoes, Tomato Paste, Puree and Sauce, Pizza Sauce, Bread Crumbs and Sweet & Sour Sauce.
