TYPIK Basil Tomato Sauce
Tomatoes used in the TYPIK Basil Tomato Sauce are exclusively grown in Tunisia and selected from the best tomatoes of the season. They come mainly from Cape Bon, in collaboration with farmers who prefer a crop without pesticides or insecticides. The carrots come from a field crop whose well drained sandy-silty soils allow an excellent taste quality.
