Cucina Antica Foods, Corp., launched a new product line of pasta sauces in the spring of 2009, Monte Bene™ (http://www.MonteBene.com). For over 10 years Cucina Antica has been making a range of sauces, pasta and olive oil. The Chef/Owner, Neil Fusco (pictured on the right), turned to New Jersey farmers for their sought-after tomatoes for his new sauce line, Monte Bene™.

To offer consumers a more budget-friendly sauce, Neil was looking for a domestic tomato source to blend with San Marzano tomatoes from Neil’s birthplace in Southern Italy, Neil chose to work with farmers in Clarksboro, NJ and Pilesgrove, NJ.

Neil chose the New Jersey tomatoes from these farms for making the Monte Bene™ pasta sauces because the tomatoes are farm-fresh picked, processed within 12 hours of harvesting and travel a short distance to where they are jarred. This method makes for a truly homemade flavor pasta sauce.”
