Mastronardi Produce, Kingsville, Ontario, took another step toward social responsibility with the recent Fair Trade certification of some of its Sunset brand tomatoes. Sunset Campari cocktail tomatoes, One Sweet peppers, Kumato tomatoes and sweet bell peppers are the varieties that received the certification.
The Fair Trade certification follows non-GMO certification and dual U.S. and Canadian organic certification for the company’s two largest facilities.
“We’re very proud to have these products available for consumers who are growing increasingly conscious of social responsibility. As a company that is non-GMO certified and has certified organic facilities, gaining Fair Trade certification is another important step to make our mission come full circle,” said chief executive officer Paul Mastronardi in a news release.
The Mastronardi Fair Trade products are now available in North America.
