I was so excited about this product that I personally thanked the POMI reps at the San Francisco Fancy Food Festival for creating boxed chopped organic tomatoes with no added salt or oil or added anything. POMI is a cooperative company based in Italy, and according to their US representative, Umberto, the coop was proven to be a resilient model during the 2008 economic crisis, which hit Italy hard.
