Marketed by Mastronardi Produce as “miraculously sweet,” Angel Sweet grape tomatoes under the Sunset brand have become one of the company’s fastest growing tomato brands since they were launched in 2012.
Chief executive officer of the Kingsville, Ontario-based company, Paul Mastronardi, said in a news release that sales of Angel Sweet tomatoes “skyrocketed” from 2012 to 2013, and he sees no end in sight to their rising popularity.
Sales have been so good the greenhouse grower-shipper is increasing the number of acres it has for the sweet grape tomatoes, according to the release.
The CEO said in the release that the new crop of Angel Sweets is anticipated in March. Children in particular like to snack on the small sweet tomatoes, but they are equally popular with consumers of all ages, he said in the release.
