For the second year in a row, Mastronardi Produce’s Sunset tomatoes have taken top honors at the 2009 Hottest Tomato Competition -- this year taking home four awards: Best Cocktail, Best Specialty, The People’s Choice Award and Best Overall Tomato. During the Tomato Capital of Canada event presented by REACH International in Leamington, Ontario, Mastronardi took top honors with its Sunset Champagne Cocktail Tomato for the Cocktail Variety category, and its Sunset Kumato Tomato in the Specialty Variety category. Mastronardi also claimed the prestigious awards for Overall Best Tomato for its Sunset Champagne Cocktail Tomato, and the People’s Choice Award for its Sunset Kumato Tomato. “Our company was built on flavor and quality, and these awards help further promote that,” said Paul Mastronardi, EVP of the Kingsville, Ontario-based company that bears his name. “The Champagne Cocktail Tomato & Kumato Tomato are just two of the more than 100 varieties of tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers that we grow and market under our Sunset brand of produce.” For more information, visit www.sunsetproduce.com.
