"The great team work carried out by the Embassy, Ice, the Ministry, Cso and Assomela enabled the achievement of this objective in just a few months. We started a year ago, when a Thai delegation was sent to Italy to check the productions and the facilities," commented Giulia Montanaro.
The first container of Marlene-branded apples arrived on October 6th 2020 after approximately one month. "Everything went well also from a logistic point of view, as the temperatures inside containers remained stable during the entire transit period."
