Argentina: lemon giant Vicente Trapani S.A.

The origins of Vicente Trapani S.A. can be traced back to the year 1935 when the Trapani Family planted the first lemon trees in Tucuman, in the location of Los Nogales. Up until then the citrus crop in Tucuman was limited to oranges and grapefruits.

In 1965, don Vicente Trapani, with many years' experience in the growing and trading of lemons in the domestic market, put his first machine for the essential lemon oil extraction. In 1970 he started with the first fresh lemons export bound to France.

The company today have 2100 hectares planted with lemon trees, extended in a ten kilometre area round the industrial plant and packinghouse centre, which allows a quick entrance and an immediate processing at the packinghouse or the industrial plant. The company buy also fruit from third parties, having a total capacity of 150,000 tons.

Vicente Trapani SA supply fresh and processed lemons under Eurepgap and HACCP standards, and do so bound to Canada, European Union, Russian, Eastern European as well as the Mid Western and Southeastern Asian markets.

The fresh fruit supply for export is made in 30 different preparations and adapted to the requirements of the customers, with whom they maintain channels of close collaboration for its development.

In the industrial area essential lemon oil, concentrated lemon juice, dehydrated lemon peel, lemon essence oil and water phase are produced. The buyers for these products are mainly customers from USA, Canada, Japan, Israel, England, Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, Belgium and Switzerland, and just like what happens with the fresh fruit, from the beginning of the season the production is allocated to the different customers in a taylor made concept, that places the company into a continuous improvement, research and development tasks.
