Pomi brand boxed tomatoes

Has anyone seen this Italian brand of boxed chopped tomatoes sold in Paris? Ilike to use it i sauces and soups since nothing is added to it.

I think the OP wants to know where to find them in Paris.

They're stocked at all our local supermarkets, no need to go to a specialty store.

I use them when I have no fresh tomatoes on hand, otherwise, I skin, seed, chop, fresh tomatoes.

It seems to me I've seen them pretty regularly at grocery stores and epiceries in Paris.

I have never seen them in France. Googling them in French ("tomates Pomi") led exclusively to American websites as well as the Pomi site, which only talks about finding them in the United States.

However, I'm sure you can find similar products available in France.

I would have guessed/presumed that you could find similar products in France, but, for me, it's just so easy to skin and seed, then chop, fresh tomatoes...and the seeds and pulp contribute serious bitterness to whatever you're preparing, so well worth the effort. You really cannot make "fresh" tomato sauce with a can or box of tomatoes...

Quite frankly canned tomatoes at most times of year makes better sauce than fresh ones. There should be no difficulty in buying them with no additives in any supermarket, their own label brands are probably as ood as any.

Any grocery in France will have high-quality boxed or jarred tomatoes, usually Italian ones. I prefer those to homemade, which is usually watery.

Pomi is just a brand -- you'll find boxed tomatoes at any supermarket in France that are at least as good as Pomi.

France mandates a list of ingredients, too -- so it's pretty easy to choose one with nothing added (other than salt, which is required for the preservation process)

Pomi tomatoes don't have salt in them.

You can also buy fresh, peeled and quartered frozen ones:
