"Unlike previous years, quotations remained stable for a long period, as demand exceeded supply. We work mainly with the foreign market, as 70% of our production is shipped to Austria, Germany, France and Denmark, where prices remain constant and in line with our quality, despite the Spanish competition. Bergamots are also doing well, as sales volumes are much higher than last year."
Fruttone sales increased by 53% compared to last year thanks to the monitoring of the entire production cycle and the collaboration with producers. "Our cooperative now has 20 partners, which means we could have produce ready for commercialisation already during the second week of October."
"We have selected early varieties and equipped our producers with innovative high-tech irrigation systems. This also to protect groves in case of heavy drought."
