tradition and technology

The climate of Sicily, the sun and the Mediterranean sea play an important role in the quality of tomatoes. Combined with technology and innovation, we are able to obtain high quality tomatoes with excellent organoleptic properties.

Our production sites are divided between traditional soil cultivation and soilless crops.
The greenhouses are equipped with computer controlled heating, shading and irrigation systems.

production

research

To stay at the forefront of great flavors it is important to identify the right tomatoes to grow. We are constantly looking for the best varieties to meet consumer demands. Selection is determined by a number of important factors: flavor, quality, shelf life, disease resistance and yield potential.

planning

Good planning of agricultural campaigns is essential to obtain satisfactory results. Together with our customers, we plan campaigns down to the smallest detail, from planting to harvest, to maximize yields, both quantitative and qualitative.

mastering

Certain types of tomatoes require more commitment and specialization of the work. Our staff is specialized in carrying out the pruning of the vines for a better definition. This operation determines the homogeneity of the color and size of the fruits.

genuinity

Our production approach is to grow genuine and healthy tomatoes. Each treatment decision is made under the careful guidance of our technicians; the product analyzes have the task of ensuring that the residual limits are below the legal requirements and that the tomatoes are suitable for consumption.

biodiversity

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) allows the destruction of harmful pests naturally by harnessing the benefits of certain insects. It consists in populating the greenhouses with these beneficial insects to prevail over the harmful parasites for the crop. This technique allows us not to use pesticides.

sustainability

We are committed to prioritize sustainability and the protection of the environment in which we operate. Our goal is to reduce waste and to recover the most of it. The coconut fiber substrate are recycled while the product waste is often used by local farmers.

natural goodness

The history of the tomato supply chain starts from the Sicilian lands where climate, land, and water create ideal conditions that enhance its natural goodness. The supply chain emphasizes the link between tomatoes and their territory of origin and promotes sustainable and responsible growing methods.

carefully selected

The supply chain promotes the healthiness of tomatoes and traceability throughout the routes of goods with particular attention to greater safety and transparency for consumers. Due to the control at every stage of the supply chain, we guarantee a healthy, safe, and carefully selected product.

natural pollination

Tomatoes are grown according to the integrated defense plan with the launch of beneficial insects, limiting the use of pesticides. Pollination occurs naturally with the intervention of bumblebees.

improved properties

The soilless technique allows us to improve the organoleptic qualities of tomatoes due to the optimal administration of nutrients to the plants.
The most cultivated reference is the premium cherry, distinctive for its excellent taste, high sugar content, and strong aromaticity.

uniform crops

The coconut fiber substrate, completely similar to an “improved soil”, is characterized by simpler and less problematic management of fertigation. We achieve greater uniformity and standardization of cultivation with significant positive influences on quality and yields.

less intervention

The substrate production technique allows us to eliminate the use of soil sterilizing chemicals. It allows eliminating the problem linked to the presence of nematodes which can cause considerable damage to cultivation.

nickel free

Due to the substrate production system, it is possible to grow cherry tomatoes with low nickel content, since the metal indicated is found in the soil in quantities that are harmful to the health of people with intolerances or allergies.
In order to meet their needs, we grow cherry tomatoes with a nickel content of less than 0.03 mg/kg, which makes them safe for consumption by those with this condition.
In addition to the Nickel-free certification, we are also proceeding to obtain the Zero Residue certification.

proactive technical approach

Since 2018, the year in which the presence of the Tomato brown rugose fruit virus was reported for the first time in the province of Ragusa, our company has immediately implemented a regulation that aims to prevent the introduction and spread of the disease in our greenhouses.
