As one of America’s leading tomato growers and processors, Red Gold has offered premium quality tomato products with attractive commodity discounts for nearly a decade.
Red Gold offers many tomato products that are creditable as Red/Orange Vegetables for the following programs:
Kids love menu items made and served with popular tomato products like marinara sauce and salsa. Now you can both menu and credit these items, as well as use your entitlement dollars for them. Find out which tomato products are creditable and how they credit by downloading the Red Gold NSLP Red/Orange Vegetable Crediting Guide.
By offering a comprehensive list of options, participating school systems have several “Pass Through Value” (PTV) methods.
Once diversion requirements are determined, school districts commit to the amount of tomato paste needed for the school year, prior to cooperative, state and USDA deadlines. Always contact your state office for the most reliable and up-to-date information.
Estimate your Tomato Paste diversion needs by product with our handy Red Gold SY19/20 Commodity Processing Calculator (xlsx) and Commodity Calculator for NOI with General Info (xlsx).
Once final Tomato Paste Tote commitments are confirmed, Red Gold establishes an individual “Tomato Bank Account” to track tomato paste allocations and the earned commodity discounts, available 24/7 at www.k12Foodservice.com.
