Welcome to the world of Panzani sauces!

So, don't delay and discover the trade secrets of Panzani sauces.

A 5 stage process

1 - Growing and Harvesting: respecting the tomato

Panzani creates its sauce recipes with sun-ripened tomatoes from the field. Our partner farmers carefully select the varieties and harvest them when they are completely ripe, between July and September.
Panzani chooses to work directly with freshly harvested tomatoes to give its sauces all the fragrant taste of ripe, sun-drenched tomatoes!

2 - Proper sorting

Immediately after harvesting, the tomatoes are washed and sorted. Only those meeting the Panzani quality requirements are kept: removing tomatoes that are still too under-ripe, ones that are over ripe and potential foreign bodies (leaves, stones, etc.).

3 - Tomatoes in all their states

When they enter the kitchens, the tomatoes are peeled. They are then cut up to become pulp or crushed to become purée.

4 - Creating the recipes

At the same time, the different recipes are created: onions, carrots and other vegetable are fried, as well as possibly meat. The tomatoes and the other ingredients (salt, aromatic herbs, etc.) are then added to this mixture for the cooking stage.

5 - From us to you

The sauces are then packaged and undergo heat treatment to ensure they are preserved properly. Lastly, our sauces are cooled so they can fill the shelves of your favorite stores!
