Tis the Season for Tomatoes!

December 18, 2019 Los Angeles, CA

Season’s Greetings from “The Greatest Tomatoes from Europe” team!

“Greatest Tomatoes from Europe” is not a specific BRAND but the slogan of a campaign co-financed by the European Commission promoting preserved (canned) tomatoes 100% Made in Europe. Known for their Rich Flavor, Tradition and Quality. Throughout America, Christmas is red—red and green, red and white, red and silver. In fact, when the red decorations start showing up, we know the season is upon us. Our beautiful European preserved tomatoes: the most scarlet of reds, so red they even TASTE red! – look so festive on the holiday table and taste so refreshing. For a little something green? How about a sprig of basil? Not only do the tomatoes lighten and brighten the holiday table, they are a great antidote to so many of the season’s indulgent dishes which can be heavy, brown, or very sweet.
