D.O.P. San Marzano Tomatoes by Danicoop:
a tin of 400 gr $3.90
a tin of 800 gr $6.90
Last friday, May 17,  Corriere della Sera, the leading Italian daily newspaper, ran an article by Antonio Castaldo about fake Italian DOP foods. Included was a photo of one of the culprits. I won't name them - not elegant - but here they are (open this link)! WOW, Antonio, you have courage! Finally, the media is realizing that by misleading customers, these practices of faking Italian products are hurting the honest and good farmers. 60 billion euros in 2012, the article says.

In the case of San Marzano Tomatoes, it is easy to find Real San Marzano and stay away from the fake. Read the label. Here are the instructions:

  • it MUST say “Pomodoro San Marzano dell’Agro Sarnese Nocerino D.O.P."
  • it MUST have the symbol of the Consorzio
  • it MUST have the symbol of the DOP
  • it MUST have a “N° XXXXXXX”, which is the Number assigned to the tin by the Consorzio.
It is not only a matter of saving the good and honest farmers, it is also a matter of buying a product whose taste and texture are light years distant from the fake.
