Big, red and Angri

Only a few minutes from Pompei, the base of a major local employer in the town of Angri.

They're specialists in conserving and packaging the famous "San Marzano" tomatoes, many
other fruits and vegetables and pestos and sauces made from the excellent local produce.

The importance for the town of this particular variety - perhaps the best of all 'plum'
tomatoes, and awarded DOP status back in the 1990s - is celebrated in the annual
'Sagra del Pomodoro' that's staged in Angri each September, once the harvest is over.
