The IICCI has signed two collaboration agreements to establish
two Fruttetos (Orchard in Italian), 2,500 sq meters of orchards exclusively dedicated to Italian high-density plantations, materials, products and technologies.
On the occasion, 20 of 200,000 high-density plants supplied by Italy’s prime nursery, Vivai F.lli Zanzi, where planted during the inauguration of the Orchard in Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir. Along with it, Mr. Giovanni Zanzi held two masterclasses on new fruit plants varieties for local growers and academicians.
Through the Frutteto, the two partnerships aim at supporting business, institutional and academic collaborations between Indian and Italian stakeholders in the entire agro-industry value chain: from agricultural products to farm mechanisation, from post-harvest technologies to cold-storage, food processing and packaging.
