GROWN IN PUGLIA, ITALY

Napolina tomatoes are grown in the south of Italy, an area which enjoys around 2,500 hours of sunshine every year. Bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, it is these conditions that allow our farmers to pick the best quality fruit from under the Italian sun.

Napolina tomatoes are canned in the Puglian province of Foggia, which is the largest tomato growing region of Italy. Foggia itself is known as ‘Il Tavoliere’ (The Table) due to being a naturally elevated plain just above sea level, allowing the breeze to regulate the heat of the sun.

The sourcing of Napolina tomatoes from local farmers not only ensures their freshness when they get to our processing site in Foggia but it also enables us to invest in our local community.

RESPONSIBLY SOURCED

Our overriding commitment to the quality of ingredients means that we will never cut corners or compromise in any way. From planting to harvesting and processing we are proud of the ethical and transparent ways of working with all partners in our supply chain.

We have also partnered with Provenance, an organisation that helps us prove and verify all of the claims we make. This means you can click through to see the proof behind what we say. This information is also accessible from your can of tomatoes.

OUR COMMITMENT TO UPHOLDING HUMAN RIGHTS

We are committed to upholding and respecting human rights throughout our supply chain. Alignment to international codes of practice is a minimum requirement for our business. We continue to look to improve worker welfare through our membership of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI).

ENSURING FAIR WORKING PRACTICES & CONDITIONS

We know that illegal labour is an industry issue and that migrants can be particularly vulnerable. It’s a well-documented challenge and Napolina is proud to publicly acknowledge this and talk about the leading work we are doing to improve the lives of workers in our supply chain. That’s why we work with third parties whose monitoring ensures that our growers operate to legal working conditions on the farms.

PROTECTING WATER RESOURCES

Water scarcity can be an issue in Southern Italy. That’s why we are working with our growers in applying the latest technology to reduce water consumption. This now includes a monitoring system called Ecofert to assess and monitor the environmental sustainability of crops.

OUR ONGOING COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABLE FARMING

We continue to work to improve the social and environmental impact of our tomato supply chain. Our collaboration with Italy’s leading Farmer’s Union, Coldiretti and the UK & Italian governments aims to make long-lasting industry improvements that continue to raise responsible sourcing practises of tomatoes.
