The cooperative Produttori di Limoni di Rocca Imperiale, that markets its lemons under the brand Limorè, created by a dozen producers with the aim to promote their production, celebrated its first year of business on 28 October 2020.
"We are very satisfied with the results achieved so far both in terms of trade and cooperation. The path is still long, but the Lemon of Rocca Imperiale IGP, renowned for its exceptional organoleptic characteristics, can finally rely on the support of an institution able to enhance it," explained Pietro Buongiorno (photo on the right), president of the above mentioned cooperative.
"During these first 12 months of activity we have implemented commercial strategies through international partnerships that have allowed our lemon to reach national and foreign supermarkets, especially France, England, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. We have aroused great interest among consumers who have returned to buy the lemon several times during the months of sale".
2020/21 production campaign
"The 2020/21 lemon harvest campaign is going to to start in the first days of December, and is likely to see an increase production by about 30% compared to last year. The size of the fruit is excellent, but it will be necessary to wait until the fruit reaches the right color, essential for the Protected Geographical Indication.
"Moreover, this next season will be characterized by an increase of about 50% of the product sold under the PGI brand. Our cooperative, already GlobalGAP certified, sells lemons grown through a rigorous production specification, which is based on the use of pesticides with low environmental impact and specific organic fertilizers, with the aim to standardize all crops and to better protect the consumer."
