Tomato processing

Food ethics and respect for the agricultural world are the cornerstones of a work philosophy that has always focused on the quality of our tomato

How do we do it

The way we work

For four generations, Steriltom has been synonymous with Tomato Pulp of certified quality and guaranteed origin. We have never forgotten our agricultural "soul", exalting its values in its continuous propensity to the future. We were the first ones to specialize in tomato pulp (finely chopped tomatoes) and to introduce the bag in box on the market. We are spokespersons for the culture and excellence of Italian tomato pulp in the world. We are a company with heart and courage, a leading company in the sector thanks to the continuous pursuit of innovation and high quality. We place at the heart of our work the food and production ethics, the excellence of the raw material and the enhancement of agricultural work as a central element of the production cycle.

The processing

Quality selection

selezione qualità

Evaluation of the raw material:
The truck enters and a sample is taken to assess its quality. If the truck does not have the necessary quality, it can be rejected.

Selection of the raw material:
All green tomatoes, aggregates, yellow tomatoes and all defective ones are discarded. We select only the best tomatoes to make our Tomato Pulp.

The processing

Tomato Extrusion


The tomatoes, washed and selected, enter production and, after a quick burn that makes the skin soft and a first cut into cubes, go into the "pounder" that crushes them and derives their pulp (excluding most of the seeds and peels).

The processing

Product packaging


The sterilized product is packaged in tins or in bag in box. For tins, there is also a further pasteurization step.
