Premium Tomatoes, Family Values

“To produce the freshest, best tasting tomato products in the world.” That’s the mission statement of Red Gold, a family-owned and operated tomato processing company that has been around since 1942. They also happen to be located in Elwood, Indiana.

Red Gold contracts with about 50 tomato growers, most of which are in Indiana. Jent Campbell of From My Front Porch’s brother is one of those Indiana Red Gold growers. She shares how her brother plants the tomatoes that end up on our store shelves here. Planting is a really slow process!

The plants take about 100 days to grow. She shares how they are cared for, picked, and loaded here!

Jent shared how the tomatoes are grown, and Red Gold shares how they are processed here! They produce over 100 varieties and flavors of tomato products.

Learn more about Red Gold in this article from My Indiana Home or at Red Gold’s website! They also share a ton of great recipes, like this one for Cheesy Pizza Soup.
