Follow the links at the top to explore more about Napolina and you can discover for yourself why, from our humble beginnings in Naples, we have grown to become one of the UK's leading Italian food brands.
Passata and purees
The Italian word for tomato is ‘pomodoro’, which literally translated means ‘golden apple’. It is certainly the richest ingredient in Italian cooking.
Napolina's tomato range stretches from canned tomatoes to passata and puree. All are designed to be convenient to use, yet give your Italian dishes real authenticity.
Napolina's tomatoes are grown on the sun-drenched slopes of Puglia in Italy, and are picked only when they are fully ripe, for a rich, intense flavour that will bring a real taste of Italy to all your cooking.
It is the quality of our tomatoes that has resulted in us becoming the UK’s number one canned tomato brand.*
Plum and chopped canned tomato varieties are the perfect Italian store-cupboard staple. For added convenience, there’s also Napolina chopped tomatoes with added herbs or garlic. You’ll also find an organic variety of Napolina’s chopped and plum tomatoes.
The smooth, sieved texture of Napolina passata makes it ideal as a versatile base for soups, casseroles and pasta sauces. For a more chunky, rustic texture to your dishes, try crushed tomatoes which Napolina also offers with added garlic, pepper or basil.

Pasta is a crucial ingredient for many Italian dishes. And with Napolina’s range of pasta, you’ll find a type of pasta to suit all your meal occasions. Whether you need a quick and tasty meal, or are making the pasta a focal point of a dish, we have pasta of all shapes and sizes.
And because all of our pasta is made in Italy, once again you can be assured of the quality that you can expect from Napolina. Our commitment to using the best ingredients, to give you the best results, has led us to become the UK’s number one pasta brand. *
Napolina also produces a range of whole wheat pastas, which are bursting with the goodness of the whole grain and perfect for preparing great tasting meals. Our Napolina whole wheat range includes familiar shapes such as penne, fusilli and spaghetti.
Napolina bronze die Pasta is extruded through bronze dies to create a rough, porous surface. When cooked, the rough surface of the pasta allows full absorption of added sauces.

Olive oil is at the heart of Italian cooking and we have made it easy for you to use the right types of oil by introducing colour-coded labels and easy-to-follow flavour descriptors on our bottles.
Extra virgin olive oil should be used as a base for sauces, dips and dressings and for adding flavour to salads, pasta and cooked meat and vegetables.
We have also recently added two new products to our extra virgin olive oil range. These include an organic olive oil made with the finest freshly milled organic Italian olives and a special selection olive oil, which has been expertly blended for olive oil connoisseurs.
Standard olive oil is particularly versatile and can be used for salad dressings and sauces through to frying and baking. Our range of standard olive oils includes an olive oil spray for better portion control.
Light and mild olive oil has a delicate flavour and can be used for both sweet and savoury foods. It is also suitable as a frying oil.
Flavoured oils are perfect for use on their own for drizzling over salads or fish, or you can use them as a base to add your own Mediterranean touch.
If you want to enjoy the taste of Italy but haven't got time to spend in the kichen, Napolina's premium pasta sauces capture the full flavours of Italy.
They are a quick and easy way to liven-up a plain pasta dish and make the ideal partner for meat or vegetables.
Napolina's bolognese sauce can also be used as a base for making lasagne, coupled with Napolina's white lasagne sauce that includes a hint of nutmeg.
Napolina sauces are produced in the UK
Napolina’s pizzeria range includes full-size and mini thin crust pizza bases, for the perfect Italian pizza. Simply pour on a jar of Napolina tomato and herb pizza topping and get creative!
And as a final touch to all your Italian dishes, why not sprinkle over some Italian grated cheese, ideal for everything from salads and soups to pizza and pasta.
When it comes to a fitting finale for many Italian dishes, cheese is the perfect choice.
And for an authentic taste, only real Italian cheese will do.
Why not try Napolina's Italian grated cheese to give your dishes a real authentic flavour? Made with high quality Italian cheese, it is sourced direct from Italy and comes ready-grated, so you can simply sprinkle it over pasta or meat dishes, or even add to a salad or sandwich.
