Low tomato puree quality

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A STUDY by Argentina's National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI) has shown that 80% of tomato purée in Tetra Brik packaging does not comply with the Argentine Food Code. The report looked into the quality of well-known brands that appear on supermarket shelves around Buenos Aires. Only four brands out of a total of 19 complied with the code.

The president of the INTI, Juan Loyo, said: "We want consumers to participate [in product quality control so that they can have safe products when they need them."
