It’s Good to be Different Hunt’s tomatoes are grown and canned in a real place with real people – Oakdale, California. The hard working folks there take pride in what they do. Since 1888, Hunt’s has canned tomatoes the natural way or, what they might call, their way. In spite of new fangled ways to get tomatoes into cans cheaper and faster, they’ve stuck with traditions like peeling with FlashSteam instead of lye. They’ve said no to GMOs and processing that hurts the environment. What the people of Hunt’s do is more than just a job; it’s a way of life. And that’s why it’s good to be different.
