  • 3. Raw Material Selection Tomatoes are contracted only from farms neighboring our processing facility Rich soil, particular climate and water conditions within the well delineated growing area, impart a distinct terroir. Tomatoes are grown from non-GMO seeds and are vine ripened before being carefully selected for their quality. Once harvested, the tomatoes are transported to the processing plant and washed to prevent microbial growth. 3 Bedemco, inc. Confidential 200 Hamilton Avenue White Plains, NY 10601
  • 4. Unique Qualities Our Oven Roasted Tomatoes are consistent in quality and flavor with “Tomato Confit,” a marketing term which top chefs in France, New York, and California are using for tomatoes which have been prepared in the same manner. The tomatoes are slow-roasted at low temperature before being stored in oil. The effect is a concentrated tomato flavor without any of the intense bitterness of fire-roasted tomatoes. The product instantly upgrades the effect of any dish or finished manufactured product. 4 Bedemco, inc. Confidential 200 Hamilton Avenue White Plains, NY 10601
  • 5. Pre-production Tomatoes are washed, sized & sorted, inspected for quality, and machine sliced. Our Quality Assurance department employs Food Technicians and Agricultural Engineers to ensure receipt of excellent raw material and to supervise and maintain Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP) throughout the production process . 5 Bedemco, inc. Confidential 200 Hamilton Avenue White Plains, NY 10601
  • 6. Drying Method Freshly cut tomatoes are carefully placed on trays and loaded on to individual racks. Tomatoes are transported to ovens and are slowly cooked for up to 36 hours until they reach the desired moisture level of 65-75% at which point they are individually quick frozen (IQF) and packed. In-house Food Engineers guarantee products are handled in a controlled environment. Quality checks ensure a sanitary atmosphere and consistent finished product. Production is BRC, ISO 22000 Certified and the product is Kosher Certified. 6 Bedemco, inc. Confidential 200 Hamilton Avenue White Plains, NY 10601
