"We plant a seed, give it water, watch it grow."
Ever wonder where Hunt's® tomatoes get that fresh, delectable, vine-ripened flavor? It starts in sunny Oakdale, Ca., the perfect climate for the finest tomatoes. There, second- and third-generation farmers like Frank Coelho work the land, picking tomatoes at the peak of freshness and sending them on from their fields to your table.
"The nutrients come out of the soil, then they're ripened by the sun, and they're delivered directly from the field to the canneries," says Coelho of the process, which—with no chemicals or artificial preservatives—makes Hunt's tomatoes 100% natural.
Meet the Hunt's farmers, and learn a little more about how they tend and harvest the tomatoes you love.
"There's a lot of pride with our people."
It's coming on 100 years since Hector Boiardi first served up what would become his signature Italian cooking. Since then, Chef Boyardee® has become an iconic brand with a storied history — and that story lives on in present-day Milton, Pa., where they recently celebrated 75 years of making Chef Boyardee at the facility.
Employees can recall a time when the Chef himself walked out on the line and lent his hand to cooking up classic pasta and hearty sauces for his spaghetti, ravioli and more. Today, the tradition continues with a family of folks who take pride in preparing really great food — from a really great chef.
"You become a family here."
