"E-commerce Food Award" for the Bergamot orange and byproduct category

“The objective is to grow and develop skills within a society that is changing rapidly, not to find ourselves unprepared when it comes to the sales channels and trends that intercept modern consumers. By following this strategy, the company has won the E-commerce Food Award, an important recognition as the best Food E-Commerce for the Bergamot orange and by-product category. The ceremony was held at Fico Eataly World in Bologna, one of the largest food agri-food parks in Europe," reports Fabio Trunfio, owner and sales manager at Azienda Agricola Patea.

Azienda Agricola Patea, located in Brancaleone (RC), specializes in the extraction of essential oil from Bergamot oranges to make juices and frozen products. The range includes: candied Bergamot oranges, oils and essences (used to create 70% natural perfumes produced in the world), etc. Bergamot oranges from Reggio Calabria are in fact known mostly for their essence although, lately, consumers have discovered them also as a fresh fruit thanks to their beneficial properties.

“Our e-commerce goes hand in hand with our sales via the traditional channels in Italy and abroad. We guarantee fresh and natural products, a short chain and a wide range of juices processed with a low thermal stress so as to preserve the beneficial properties of the raw material. We are proud of the award, as it recognizes the work we are doing to promote Bergamot oranges from Reggio Calabria." 

"Our priorities include safeguarding the productions of Bergamot oranges from Reggio Calabria (Italy) from those from other areas by obtaining the PGI mark. The growing quantities input on the market from extra-provincial and extra-regional groves generate an imbalance between supply and demand, penalizing growers who invested in new groves."  

At SIAL 2022 in Paris, Azienda Agricola Patea presented and illustrated the qualities of this delicious 100% mango juice

Over the past few years, the company diversified its fruit juice range. "After a few tests, we introduced mango juice with astonishing results when it comes to flavor, thus widening the options for savoring this fruit, whose sales have boomed over the past few years." 

The Energy Juice Tris is also much appreciated - a natural product obtained by pressing Calabrian organic fruits such as pomegranates, Bergamot oranges and Italian fresh Goji berries - as well as organic orange juice (from the Valencia variety grown on the Ionian Coast of Reggio Calabria) available in 200 and 750 ml bottles.

"For the next campaign, we will increase the volumes of mango juice, considering that we have already finished the stocks. The mango season in southern Italy goes from mid-August to October for varieties such as Glenn, Maya and Kensington Pride. Late varieties such as Kent and Keitt are available until November, although with lower quantities."
