About Us

Carmelina ‘e…San Marzano and Carmelina Brands products are inspired by the Italian passion for fresh, simple, and high-quality ingredients.

Our tomatoes are grown under the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, where the fruit flourish in the Mediterranean climate, and the region’s nutrient rich, volcanic soil. Our Italian beans are sourced from growers mirroring our commitment to sustainable and fair trade practices.

It is our mission to source and manufacture clean, quality ingredients utilizing traditional artisan, fresh-pack preserving methods that have been in place for generations. These Old World processes eliminate the need or use of chemical preservatives, or additives in any of our products.

Our line of all-natural tomatoes, Carmelina ‘e…San Marzano, bring the incredible flavor and richness of the Italian San Marzano tomato to North America. Our tomatoes are vine ripened to maturity, harvested only at their peak, and travel from field to factory in less than a few short hours to be packed in a simple tomato puree, nothing more.

Like our tomatoes, Carmelina Brands Italian beans are all-natural, and high-quality. They’re preserved al dente to retain their shape and firmness, making them well suited for everything from salads, sautés, or even long simmered stews. Our beans are free from calcium chloride, citric acid, and EDTA.

We are proud to offer families and chefs clean, fresh, and flavorful ingredients to use in all kinds of recipes – from Italian inspired and beyond. From our table to yours – Mangia bene e buon appetito!
