  • I recently purchased Red Gold whole tomatoes and they were the best quality of canned tomatoes that I can remember purchasing. Thank you for such a great product.
  • The only canned tomatoes that I buy. They are better than any other brand, including San Marzano tomatoes. The tomatoes are firm and whole, not broken up into pieces floating around in the juice like others.
  • I am writing to let you know how much my family and I love your tomatoes. They are delicious. Thanks for making such amazing products.
  • Your canned tomatoes are the best. I use the whole peeled tomatoes...just as good as my canned tomatoes from my garden, thank you for such a fine product. You are to be commended.
  • I had never used your products until the other day and decided to try them to make a pot of chili. We were very pleased to know we were helping to support the Midwest farming community. We'll be buying more...It's a THUMBS UP!!!!!
