Harvesting of Eplì apples to start in two weeks' time

"Our product looks great and expectations are high. We are organising the marketing campaign and will work as partners of Coop Consorzio Nord-Ovest," explains Simone Bernardi.

The Lagnasco Group PO is organising a series of initiatives to promote Eplì on the market. "Initially, the campaign will focus on farmer's markets because we have realised our clients have shifted from buying online to actually going to local markets to buy produce." 

Eplì apples aim at adapting to consumer needs while respecting all the actors in the production chain.

"Other initiatives will include the sponsoring of Teatro Toselli in Cuneo. Generally fruit sponsors sports events, but with Eplì we want to involve people interested in culture as well. To us, sponsoring workshops for children and families means educating them for the future." 

"Production has increased, so the apples will be available in other Italian regions too. At the moment, we will only focus on the domestic market, although demand is already coming in from abroad. The variety sold as Eplì is Ignored Story, although we are also considering other similar varieties that could become part of the project."

Harvesting starts on 15th October and the fruit will be available mainly in Piedmont and Lombardy. Quantities and quality are expected to be good also thanks to the weather. In addition, grades are suitable for the Italian market.

Eplì apples will be available in Coop stores from February onward, as the characteristics make them suitable for the end of the campaign. The Gala season ends in early March, while Eplì apples are sold until May-June, quantities permitting.
