ISO POMI chopped tomatoes (GTA)

hi hounds,

i'm in desperate search of POMI chopped tomatoes. i used to find them regularly stocked at longos. in the last few months, i've only seen the strained boxes. i spoke with the manager at the longos i go to and he said he's had them on order for weeks but only the strained boxes show up. i've gone to two different fortinos and have had no luck. i've had friends in woodbridge and hamilton looking and they too can only find the strained boxes.

i believe parmalat used to own the POMI brand ... i called parmalat canada and they were of no use and a google search seems to indicate that POMI is now carried by a company in the US called POMI USA. i've also called this US office and they were unable to tell me about canadian distribution.

FWIW, pomi tomatoes come in boxes/cartons and are normally stocked with the canned/jarred tomatoes. they're about $2.29 for a box.

here's a visual:

at this point, i'll drive anywhere in the GTA to pick up some boxes. has anyone seen POMI chopped tomatoes?
