Sunset’s Kumato named Best Tomato for Men

November 4, 2014  By Dave Harrison

Nov. 4, 2014, Kingsville, Ont. – What makes Kumato™ the King of tomatoes?

Just ask Men’s Health Magazine, who’ve recently dubbed the Sunset® tomato the best for men.

Introduced in 2010, Sunset’s Kumato brand tomatoes have quickly gained notoriety for their unique colour, perfect size and well-balanced flavour. These non-GMO verified tomatoes naturally turn a reddish-brown colour at their peak ripeness.


“Kumato is one of Sunset’s best selling signature brands,” says CEO Paul Mastronardi. “We knew we had found an amazing product years ago because it was so unique looking and tasting. The Kumato is very balanced, not too acidic, with a mysterious and smoky flavour.”

In November’s issue, Men’s Health Magazine published its picks for the top 100 Best Foods for Men. The list includes healthy, flavourful, and easy to prepare products that were all taste-tested by the team at the magazine. Sunset’s Kumato tomatoes were selected for their sweet and tangy flavour, non-GMO verification, and because they can be enjoyed on their own or in a variety of dishes.

“At Sunet, we search the world for flavour,” adds Mastronardi. “We want to ensure that consumers enjoy our tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers as healthy foods that don’t need to be covered in dressings or dips; their flavour is best on its own. Being recognized by Men’s Health for that is a great honour.”

Why else should men be reaching for Sunset’s Kumato tomatoes? Tomatoes are a natural source of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that may help prevent certain diseases, such as prostate cancer.

Movember, formerly known as November, is dedicated to raising awareness for men’s health, and is the perfect time to pick up a pack of Kumato tomatoes and try a new Sunset recipe.

The November issue of Men’s Health is available on newsstands now.
