Hunt's®, a brand of ConAgra Foods, Inc. (NYSE: CAG), has introduced three new organic tomato offerings which are now available for consumers and retailers. Hunt's Organic Diced Tomatoes, Hunt's Organic Tomato Sauce and Hunt's Organic Tomato Paste offer the same great taste of Hunt's and are USDA-certified organic.

"Organic food has undoubtedly earned a place in American households," said Ryan Pintado-Vertner, Senior Brand Manager, Hunt's Canned, ConAgra Foods. "Our new Organic Hunt's varieties are great additions to our existing Hunt's business and provide more options to the 45 percent of consumers actively trying to include organic foods in their diet."

Hunt's Organic Diced Tomatoes are made with non-GMO ingredients, peeled using simple steam from hot water, chopped and packed in their own juice—all within hours of picking from the vine in sunny California. Hunt's Organic Tomato Sauce and Hunt's Organic Tomato Paste are made with all-natural, vine-ripened tomatoes. Hunt's Organic Tomato Sauce is also simmered with salt, spices and natural flavors for seasoning, and contains no added sugar, corn syrup or other sweeteners.

"For more than 100 years, Americans have looked to Hunt's as the tomato expert," said Pintado-Vertner. "That's why we're thrilled to be able to offer them great-tasting, convenient organic choices from a brand they have come to trust."

As with all Hunt's products, the new organic offerings are canned in non-BPA cans and are 100 percent natural—with no artificial preservatives.

Hunt's Organic Diced Tomatoes, Hunt's Organic Tomato Sauce and Hunt's Organic Tomato Paste are available at grocery stores nationwide for the suggested retail price of $1.69, $1.59 and $1.19 respectively.
