Thanks to its associates, Palumbo Più processes and distributes around 500 tonnes of yellow and red peppers and 350 tonnes of dark courgettes every year.
Domenico "Mimmo" Palumbo, sales manager, told FreshPlaza that "at the moment, even though quality is high, the market is stalling as there is no demand and prices are very low. We only sell when there are special offers, which do not cover production costs."
The produce is cleaned, selected and packed in the company's facilities - 1,000 sq m equipped with cold storage units and processing lines. The products and the packaging centre have the GlobalGAP certification.
The produce is supplied in 40x60 cardboard boxes or 30x50 plastic crates depending on the clients' needs - most being retailers and markets in Northern Italy.
