Italy: New fennel processing line at Caligari e Babbi

Caligari & Babbi activated a new automatic grading line for fennel in order to precisely select produce.

"We also required a special feature, i.e. an ozonisation system: ozone-enriched water is safe and healthy, so much so that the Ministry of Health recognised this gas as natural defence against bacteria, fungi and moulds," explains Marco Babbi, sales manager and co-owner of the company with Vittorio Caligari (in the photo below).

"We made this choice because we want to distinguish ourselves from the competition thanks to our quality and attention to safety."

Exports represent 30% of the turnover - Netherlands, Switzerland, France, UK and Denmark are the main destinations for both the retail and wholesale markets. "We are now establishing the first contacts in Belgium and Denmark too, and clients seem to appreciate our investment."

"The Swiss and Danish markets prefer smaller grades, so we mainly send two-piece flow-packs (500 grams), whereas the Dutch, British and French require medium grades. It is the domestic market that prefers the bigger grades."

Caligari & Babbi is also implementing a quality management system inside the warehouse.
