In the new episode of “Open air – With the fruits of the earth” on 22/08/2021 available on our YouTube channel, specials dedicated to the harvesting and processing of our tomatoes are available:

 Campaign 2021: how is the tomato harvest going?

We are together with our new President Mr. Pier Luigi Arata and the Head of Technical Department Mr. Davide Previati in Piacenza with Mr. Claudio Ferri to take stock of the current situation of the harvesting of processing tomatoes.

Although the seasonal trend has meant that the harvest began a few days late with yields of the early tomato lower than the historical one, the tomato of the medium-early and medium period is registering an excellent quality to be transformed in terms of brix , texture and color.

Our President talks about how he is facing this new role, the challenges that await us as an oraganization for this campaign, but with an eye to the future of our sector.

Campaign 2021: from farm to fork a look at the processing of the tomato

With the Head of the Technical Department Mr. Davide Previati and Mr. Claudio Ferri we visit the Emiliana Conserve plant in San Polo di Podenzano welcomed by the CEO of the company Mr. Gian Mario Bosoni.

In the episode we follow the path of the tomato from quality control in the factory to bottling. Let’s analyze together the critical issues of the sector from the point of view of the processing industry that we have faced in recent years and the demands that the market places on our sector: an increasingly sustainable product from an ethical, environmental and economic point of view.
