When it comes to peeling,
The only thing between the farm and your table
Is steam from simple hot water.

At Hunt's, we believe it's good to be different. We peel our diced, whole, and stewed tomatoes with FlashSteam® instead of chemicals, which means no chemical by-products go back into the earth. It might not be the easiest way, but we believe that it's the right way.

Tomatoes aren't just our job, They're our way of life.

Our tomatoes are grown under the warm sun of Oakdale, California—a place with some of the richest soil on earth, and some of the most dedicated farmers on earth. This tomato town is the home of Hunt's, and since 1888, we've been doing tomatoes our own way. The natural way. A different way.

"Some people call me 'The Tomato Guy.' And for whatever reason, I like tomatoes. I understand them. I've been with them for over 40 years."

  • Fresh-from-the-vine Flavor

    Hunt's tomatoes ripen naturally on the vine. That mean's they're soft, fleshy, and full of juice and flavor on the inside.

  • Ripe and Ready

    We pick ripe California tomatoes** and can them within hours to preserve their fresh flavor. Other tomatoes—even the ones in the produce aisle at the grocery store—ripen on the truck.

  • Always on the Sunny Side

    Why Oakdale, California? It's the perfect place to grow tomatoes. California gives plants at least eight hours of sunlight a day, which is the ideal amount of sunlight for optimal sweetness.

Preserving goodness, naturally.

We peel our diced, whole, and stewed tomatoes with FlashSteam instead of chemicals, such as lye, that some other companies use.* Which also means no chemical by-products go back into the earth.

  • Tons of Tomatoes

    Approximately 465 trailer loads of fresh tomatoes come down through the valley and into our plant every single day.

  • Little Waste, Big Difference

    In order to get the most out of every tomato, we use anything that doesn't go into our products to feed animals or as compost, so none of it goes into landfills.

  • Naturally Delicious

    Hunt's tomatoes are 100% natural—with no artificial preservatives.

It's good to be different.

Sometimes doing things differently is just the right thing to do. It might not be the easiest way, but here at Hunt's, we believe that it's the right way. That's why you can be sure that every time you create a meal with Hunt's tomatoes, you're cooking with the very best.
