Where can I get good tomato juice?

Consider it a FWP, but why there's no tomato juice in shops? Coop sells a concoction of red goo, migros - I think they have something that resembles tomato juice. That's it. Innocent only make stuff that contains oranges. Please spare me the recipes of how to make one at home - I would like the convenience of simply grabbing one off the shelf and drinking it.
Back in the old days ('when I was a young lass/lad' song) we used to buy unconcentrated juice which contained: tomatoes and salt. No celery, challots and other bayleaf, pepper, olive oil palaver.
So, if anyone knows of a place, please let me know.

Re: Where can I get good tomato juice?

Actually I always liked to tomato juice from Migros and afai-remember it was only tomatoes and salt, in a glass bottle. To my utter shock it is not on their website anymore! Only because I took a break for a while?!
First thing I will check next time I'm there.

However, they do have an Alnatura one, you will now probably moan that it's tetra and sea salt?
But it's bio .....

I've bought some from Lidl recently. It's even bio organic.

Re: Where can I get good tomato juice?

I can understand if tj is heat-treated for a long shelf life - it's just the scarcity of it and the embellishments in the form of spices and other stuff... Thanks, will look at the two places already mentioned!

Re: Where can I get good tomato juice?

Itís under the Biotta range of juices. All manner of veggie juices. Not tried the tomato juice but I like the beetroot juice from time to time, although it would make a crap Bloody Mary...

Re: Where can I get good tomato juice?

From Toe May Toes, where else?

Edited to add, it tastes much better at altitude- top of the ski slope or in an aeroplane.

I would say your google-fu needs some work. Here is one :

https://captainjetson.com/air-travel...en-flying/?amp

This one suggests as the plane approaches 30k feet your taste improves. The neglect to realise that you would be dead at 30k feet. The aircraft is pressurised to around 8k feet. Around 2,500m.

Erm... I would like my tj on solid ground, thanks. If only I could find something which lists its ingredients as: tomatoes, salt.

Of course, I could buy a juicer, then spend time fishing it out of the basement (too bulky to keep in the kitchen, because it's all occupied by the stuff I need to make my own crumpets, biscuits, pizza sauces, fresh pasta, smoothies to rival the known brand, fondue set, racklette set, lemon squeezer, coffee grinder, etc, because, you know, you are in Switzerland, you must shut up and make it yourself or simply pack up and go live somewhere else as), then set it up, then wash it, then put it away.

I simply am asking for an option of buying a bottle of simple tomato juice. From a shop. Is it too much to ask for?

Re: Where can I get good tomato juice?

Migros has two decent sorts:
Alnatura (tetra-pack) and Sarasay (plastic bottle). I personally like Sarasay more.
