Pachino IGP Cherry Tomato Passata
This velvety passata is made from sweet cherry tomatoes from Pachino, Italy's (and Europe's) most southern town, located in the province of Siracusa, Sicily. Tomatoes growing in this area are fruit of the southern sun, the bright winter days, the clay soil and mild climate. Red, round, and intensely fragrant, crispy outside and soft inside. Pachino tomatoes are an explosion of freshness in your mouth: sweet pulp and savoury at the same time – containing all the flavours of the land where they are cultivated.
Pachino tomatoes also have exceptional nutritional properties: full of antioxidants and rich in vitamins, they are highly important in the Mediterranean diet; recognized worldwide as an intangible heritage of UNESCO. They were granted IGP (Protected Geographic Indication) status by the EU in 2013.
This sauce is perfect as it is and can be used straight from the jar. Just warm it and add it to the pasta of your choice. It can also be used as a base for other pasta sauces, with meat, in rice balls and many other different recipes.

The Campisi family business was founded in 1854 in beautiful Marzamemi, a small Sicilian village in the province of Siracusa, steeped in traditions associated with fish processing. Linked to the sea for over a century, Salvatore Campisi produces and processes a wide range of fish products using ancient techniques dating back to the Arab period, refined over time in this small village. Campisi affirms: "Our goal is to continually search for products that have created the history of our land.”
Marzamemi is located near the town of Pachino and Campisi also prepare vegetable products, most notably an exquisite Cherry Tomato sauce made with the P.G.I. Pachino Tomato, known worldwide for its infinite sweetness.
Both in seafood and vegetable production, methods have remained the same over the years with the locals traditionally handing them down from generation to generation. The authenticity and freshness of the raw materials and strict controls ensure the best possible quality. The Campisi company, well aware of living off the land and sea, respects the local territory ensuring, through its code of ethics a healthy relationship between man and nature. Fish are of course, exclusively line-fished in a sustainable way.
