So many dishes we love start with ripe, tasty tomatoes. Secure in Fres-co’s flexible packaging, those tomatoes don’t have to be just off the vine to be delicious and nutritious. Whole or diced, in sauces or purees – whatever your retail or foodservice tomato specialty, Fres-co’s retort and hot fill technology ensures your product’s safety while preserving the quality, flavor and freshness that are hallmarks of a great brand.
With machines, materials and service all under one roof, Fres-co’s system approach provides single source, flexible solutions for your every tomato packaging need. Our food experts have decades of industry-leading experience and will work with you to customize packaging that protects the integrity of your tomato products throughout production and distribution. Have a particularly tough challenge? As packaging pioneers and inventors, we thrive on them. We’ll guide you through the move from cans to flexible packaging, and we’ll do it with reliable, built-to-last machines that can manufacture a wide range of package sizes.
Higher quality tomato products can go hand-in-hand with lower costs, greater safety and ease of use, less waste and a more environmentally friendly footprint. It just takes the right flexible packaging! Tomato products in pouches require shorter cooking time than those in cans, resulting in better taste, texture and nutritional value. Lighter weight pouches also take up less space, meaning you’ll enjoy lower freight and storage costs. With “grab and go” ease, pouches are quicker and safer to open and handle. (No more ragged can edges, metal fragments or rusty can openers!) They use less material and energy to produce and take up less space in dumpsters and landfill.
