Pomì is not only an Italian brand, a company that produces and sells tomatoes. It is a collection of stories and people, farmers that every day dedicate themselves to tomatoes, to bring to the table a product of the highest quality. In all production phases, for every single product, we calculate the sustainability indexes to guarantee a healthy, safe product and a sustainable future.

Carbon Footprint! What are we talking about?

Distribution

Pomì respects the environment and the territory. Since 2014, Pomì has adhered to the National Program for the Environmental Footprint, started by the Ministry of the Environment and the Protection of the Territory and the Sea. The Carbon Footprint measures the equivalent amount of CO2 for each product placed on the market, directly or indirectly linked to the product life cycle, from cultivation to processing, from distribution to the disposal of the packaging.

Pomì neutralizes the CO2 emissions associated with the production of Pomì L + tomato sauce by purchasing certified carbon credits and promoting a project aimed at installing stoves for cooking food in the rural areas of Siaya County in Kenya. This energy efficiency project is called COOKSTOVE and was certified Gold Standard. What are the benefits for the local communities? The installed stoves present a series of advantages: net decrease of open fires, less quantity of CO2 emitted and therefore a significant reduction of the produced pollution and finally less respiratory diseases for the local families.
