Tuttofood, always a success.


The event held last week from 8 to 11 May saw STERILTOM as a protagonist.
Steriltom has brought important innovations in terms of Sustainability to FieraMilano.
“Always with an eye to the future and to the territory, the company is investing in a multi-year plan of more than 30 million euros to improve sustainability through the reduction of CO2 emissions, the reduction of water consumption and the production efficiency” stated Mr. Alessandro Squeri, general manager of STERILTOM.
The flagship of this plan lies in a new model of low-consumption concentrator that replaces the use of methane gas with electricity. Furthermore, from the next campaign, thanks to the optimization of logistics spaces, over 6,000 shuttle trucks between the different warehouses are expected to be saved.
Steriltom thus continues in its path of differentiation of its offer also from an environmental point of view.

Steriltom has been the first Italian company to use the bag in box technology for the packaging of tomato pulp. The bag in box is nothing more than an aseptic bag made of polylaminate plastic material, a resistant but soft material that preserves the tomato pulp from light and air and from any other type of contaminant. In fact, compared to the traditional cans, the bag in box has a lot of advantages:
- Ease of opening and use
- Greater safety, as the possibility of contamination with any metal residues during the opening phase is avoided
- Ease of disposal and storage
- Convenience in terms of price

Have you ever tried our Tomato Pulp in bag in box?

Sustainability Report

With great satisfaction we share our 2021 Sustainability Report. Always attentive to this matter, we continue our journey towards a more "green" vision of our work.
STERILTOM, with this document, illustrates its commitment in a particular year linked to post-pandemic difficulties but which has nevertheless made it possible to achieve important goals. The main investments concern energy efficiency through the purchase of new plants and technologies aimed at reducing CO2 emissions. Another important structural investment was made through the purchase of plot of land adjacent to the factory, for the future creation of a service area suitable for the storage of the finished product, which will allow the disposal of external warehouses and the elimination of shuttle trucks with a considerable saving in emissions and an improved impact on local traffic.
Our corporate values have deep roots, and thanks to the long-term vision we are able to take on a daily basis concrete sustainable actions.

A family story

In 1934 Dario Giuseppe Squeri founded the first tomato processing factory in Piacenza area. The passion for tomatoes that distinguish Steriltom since more than 80 year has deep roots in the territory, with an eye to the world. Our story begins here…

Km 0

Fresh and KM 0 product

Steriltom collaborates with more than 200 farmers and mutual trust is the base to guarantee a fresh and KM 0 product. More than 80% of our suppliers' fields is located within an average ray of less than 30 km from our production plants. The freshness is the hallmark of our tomato pulp.

The 2022 industrial tomato harvest has ended

“ANICAV certifies for 2022 a 10% of reduction in the production compared to last season. The situation is even worse if we consider the low industrial yields, the high costs related to energy and the drought that has strongly affected the agricultural supply chain. Infrastructural and sustainability financial interventions are needed to try to tackle climate change in the short and long term”. These are the words of our General Manager, Alessandro Squeri, on the sidelines of the 10th edition of “Il Filo rosso del pomodoro”, held in Parma on 26th October.
The 2022 industrial tomato harvest has ended. A campaign certainly with various critical issues that we have tried, with usual dedication, to manage in the best possible way.
In the two production plants, Steriltom and Italtom, we processed a total of almost 400 thousand tons of fresh tomatoes.

Thanks to all the farmers and all the collaborators for the precious support!

JULY 29TH 2022



We are happy to announce that Steriltom, with an important transaction, has proceeded with the takeover of the minority shares owned by Emiliana Conserve Spa in Italtom Srl, already controlled by Steriltom.

Today Italtom, which boasts a very modern industrial plant in the Ferrara area, is therefore 100% owned by the Steriltom Group. With this choice Steriltom confirms the intention to consolidate its market position by diversifying its territorial presence in Northern Italy with two production sites, in Gragnano Trebbiense and Argenta.

Dario Squeri, CEO of the Steriltom group commented: "The decision to takeover in 2018 the ex Ferrara Food was not easy and in the recent years, together with all our collaborators, we have had to work hard to ensure growth and profitability of the company. Nevertheless, together we have achieved a good result in which we believe a lot and we have demonstrated it with this last transaction. Thanks to all our colleagues for their commitment in these recent years, which has allowed us to consolidate the Steriltom group as a leader in the Food Service and Industrial channels throughout Europe. In 2021 the Steriltom group achieved a consolidated turnover of 130 million euros and processed over 420 thousand tons of 100% Italian fresh tomatoes and employed more than 700 people”

Steriltom was followed in the acquisition by the Squeri e Associati Srl firm in Piacenza and by the partner Mrs. Silvia Bordi of the Gianni & Origoni law firm in Rome.

JULY 26TH 2022

What is happening in recent weeks is a clear signal of a strong environmental change.

The drought that is affecting our areas is worrying, the high temperatures and the absence of rainfall for months have generated such an important drought that Emilia Romagna Region has declared the State of Water Emergency.

STERILTOM, which has always been attentive to sustainability and innovation, implements a well-structured plan against water wasting.

Our farmers work with the most advanced agricultural practices, such as the use of Irrigation Probes for irrigation monitoring: the seedlings are drip irrigated and only when it is really necessary. The probes detect when the soil actually needs water, thus avoiding continuous flow irrigation that would not bring any benefit to the seedlings and in addition would constitute a waste of resources that would have an impact on the community.

Steriltom, which has always cared about Innovation and Sustainability, is once again at the forefront.
