Neil Jones Food Company Announces Organic Offerings for 2009 Season

The Neil Jones Food Company (NJFC) introduces six new organic tomato products this season. Packed from fresh, organic, California tomatoes, these new product offerings have the same rich flavor of San Joaquin Valley tomatoes, yet provide the added benefit of organic harvesting that consumers are now drawn to. Certified organic by both the USDA and CCOF, the seals give consumers the peace of mind that the company has undergone rigorous inspection of farm fields and the processing facilities.

Packed in Hollister, CA, these items are currently available through select distributors across the country.

The new items include Organic Diced Tomatoes in Juice, Organic Whole Peeled Tomatoes in Juice, Organic Fully Prepared Pizza Sauce, Organic Tomato Sauce, Organic Tomato Paste, and Organic Tomato Puree. Available in #10 cans under the nationally recognized San Benito label, expect the same quality and value associated with the brand for over 75 years. With various applications, each item offers a different menu option for foodservice operators.

The Neil Jones Food Company proudly supports sustainable harvest practices with goals to preserve environmental health, economic profitability, and social and economic equity. The organic growers are held to strict requirements to ensure tomato crops are of the best quality while protecting the environment and human health. Sustainable agriculture and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) are the keystones to the NJFC philosophy.
