Yields per hectare are impressive and so is quality. Over the next few years, we will reach 500 hectares and we will be able to supply 5% of the national requirements," reports Alessandro Annibali.

"The Noci di Romagna project provides interesting perspectives for producers. In a period of crisis such as this one, it guarantees considerable growth opportunities. We have always believed Romagna, thanks to its soil and the skills and initiative of its producers, represented a strategic area to grow this product and reach a level that could supply good part of the requirements of the domestic and maybe even European markets."
