The sales of Italian kiwis have now come to an end and Jingold is about to kick start the South American campaign, thanks to the production in Chile and Argentina. Despite the concerns about the anomalous seasonal trend that characterized the southern summer, the analyses carried out in Chile, where the harvest of the yellow kiwi started at the end of last week, confirmed an excellent quality product, of middle size and with very high dry substance. The first quantities are expected to arrive in Europe in the first part of May, slightly earlier than last season.
While the Comité of the Chilean kiwi has stated that the national production for the Hayward variety is expected to decline, the export volumes of Jingold yellow kiwis are expected to be around 3,500 tons; a slight increase, therefore, compared to the previous season.
Thanks to the production of the southern hemisphere, Jingold can guarantee continuity especially in European, Asian and North American markets, where the brand is present on store shelves all year round.

"Regarding the emergency linked to Covid-19 - says the general manager of Jingold Alessandro Fornari - we are close to the Chilean and Argentine friends and, although in Chile the concern of the operators for the possible shortage of manpower is growing, at the moment the activities are guaranteed and the technical staff of Jingold Chile is closely following the pre-harvest monitoring and the quality control operations on the packaging; our staff, together with the producers and the companies that collaborate in the production, is taking all the necessary precautions for safeguarding the health and safety of its workers and collaborators, while at the same time making sure work is carried out. Our goal is to continue to guarantee the same product and service standards as always, even in such a delicate moment".
Last week, the founding members of Jingold spa, Agrintesa, Alfrut, Consorzio Frutteto, La Buona Frutta and Perugini Frutta, decided to donate the sum of 100,000 euros to Unità Sanitaria Locale Romagna.
The decision came from the desire to help as much as possible the health personnel in its impressive daily effort to fight this serious emergency, by purchasing equipment, tools and devices.
This concrete help stresses the group's attention to this national emergency, an attention that has led management to adopt all the necessary rules to protect workers in the current weeks, without however interrupting national and international product supplies. Joining the effort with the Italian agri-food chain, the team's objective is to make sure consumers, even in this difficult moment, can eat good and fresh kiwis.
