Why was this product created ?
For their texture, tenderer than traditional sun-dried tomatoes: they melt in the mouth and are also tastier and more flavourful.
With a tenderer texture than traditional sun-dried tomatoes, Favuzzi semi-dried tomatoes are also tastier and more flavourful. Ripened to perfection under the Abruzzo sun, in Italy, and preserved in a blend of extra-virgin olive oil and sunflower oil, their flavours are enhanced with a hint of basil, oregano, garlic and wine vinegar. Furthermore, they contain no preservatives.
Our producer is certified by the British Retail Consortium and the International Food Standard.
Selected fresh tomatoes are marinated, then slowly cooked in a very low oven to preserve the tender texture that sets them apart from traditional dried tomatoes.
Favuzzi dried tomatoes are the only authentic Italian dried tomatoes: they are made from vine tomatoes picked on the land of our producer in the Abruzzo region.
