Product News: Pomì Showcases Two New Products During the Upcoming Summer Fancy Food Show



NEW YORK, June 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomì, the premium Italian tomato brand owned by the Consorzio Casalasco del Pomodoro, well-known for being a leader in sustainability and transparency, takes its participation to the Summer Fancy Food Show 2017 in New York as an opportunity to present two new solutions addressing the consumer and the food industry needs.

The first, Pomì Juice, comes at a time where the brand is expanding to other sectors, such as the ready-to-drink. Available in a convenient 26.46oz (750ml) format, Pomì juice can be drank as is or used as mixer for a large variety of cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages in which the only limit is the consumer's imagination! Available starting this fall.

Simultaneously, in order to address the needs of the Food Industry segment, Pomì launches its "Bag in Box", available at a 22lbs (10kg) format in both its chopped and strained versions, starting August of this year. The new line will be the perfect partner for cooks and Chefs to complement their dishes with a uniquely-Italian product of great quality and taste.

Both products, following a Pomì tradition, are 100% Italian, BPA-free, kosher, non-GMO, no preservatives, no artificial flavors, no citric acid, and no water added.

"Pomì Juice stems from our willingness to respond to the high demand for healthy and nutritious drinks consumers have been manifesting, especially in the United States," comments Mr. Costantino Vaia, President of Pomì USA and Managing Director of the Consorzio Casalasco del Pomodoro. "At the same time, with 'Bag in Box Pomì', we also wanted to address the void within the food industry with a high-quality product that will perfectly complement the kitchens of the best restaurants across the United States," concludes Mr. Vaia.
