Traceability

Cento Certified San Marzano Tomatoes are certified by an independent third-party agency, Agri-CertIn 1985, Bioagricert became the first body accredited by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture for the certification and control of vegetable, animal, and processed organic products. In 1993 Bioagricert was recognized by the Ministry of Agricultural Politics as Authorized National Body for the Control and Certification of Organic Productions. Bioagricert is also notably recognized as the first Italian organization working to promote the organic culture in countries outside Europe. Today, Bioagricert works throughout Italy as well as many countries throughout Europe, Asia, South America, and North America as an authority in food inspection and certification., and produced with the proper method to ensure superior quality. From seed to shelf, our tomatoes are monitored and held to the highest of our standards. PAC Traceability (Product Attribute Certification) is the driving force behind the certification of Cento San Marzano Tomatoes. Each can comes labeled with a “lot code” as well as a best before date. These lot codes allow us to trace every can to the exact farm where the tomatoes were picked to ensure that each crop is up to our high standards.
