"Freshness, high-quality, continuous supplies and Italian origin have never been as essential as they are at a time such as this, especially if the produce is organic. These factors have always represented our core values," explains Rocco Dimallio, director of "Principe di Puglia", one of the leading organic fruit and vegetable producers in Puglia.
"We have over 500 hectares of organic crops. Our mission is to supply consumers with healthy high-quality and pesticide-free products certified by the best domestic and European bodies such as IFS Food and GlobalGAP."
"Our catalog includes broccoli, cabbage, fennel, artichokes and beets as well as bell peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, melons and fresh fruit. Over 90% of the production is shipped abroad to Germany, Great Britain, France, Spain and the Netherlands, while the rest goes to some domestic retail chains such as Iperspar and Esselunga. Soon we will also start exporting to the Middle East and Saudi Arabia."
"Having a processing warehouse with over 150 work units enables us to differentiate our supply and meet all client requests, regardless of whether they prefer plastic packets part of IFCO or CHEP circuits or eco-friendly cardboard. We provide the chance to everyone to purchase organic produce thanks to our e-commerce platform, but we are also establishing relations with the leading start-up dealing with online shopping."
"Over the past few weeks, we have had to deal with considerable orders of broccoli, leek, artichokes and fennel mainly destined to Denmark, Germany and Great Britain. The demand for organic produce is on the up as it guarantees a healthier well-balanced diet and the current emergency seems to support this trend."
