Episode taken from “A cielo aperto – Con i frutti della terra” of 17/07/2022

In the new episode of ” A cielo aperto – Con i Frutti della Terra ” of 17/07/2022 with Claudio Ferri there are our Head of the Technical Department Davide Previati and our members Aimi Andrea and Aimi Sara.

In this special episode we talk about a niche product, that perhaps not everyone knows, the “cherry tomato”: a fruit that stands out for its superior quality and organoleptic characteristics compared to the round tomato.

In the clip, we see it in the highlight of the production cycle: the harvest of these fruits that begins in these days and will end at the end of September.

National varietal comparison project for industrial tomatoes

Since 2019 ASIPO participates in the Research and Experimentation project entitled “NATIONAL VARIETAL COMPARISON PROJECT FOR INDUSTRIAL TOMATOES AND TO INCREASE THE ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY OF CULTIVATION BY REDUCING WATER CONSUMPTION AND INTRODUCING BIODEGRADABLE MULCH” in collaboration with 12 other Organization of Fruit and Vegetable Producers (OP), together with CREA – Council for research in agriculture and the analysis of the agricultural economy with the Horticulture and Nursery Research Center – Pontecagnano office (CREA OF) and to our National Union – Italia Ortofrutta.

In the images you can see the inspections of the past few days at our experimental field in Felino (PR). During the visits was also carried out the test of deficit irrigation for biodegradable mulch.

Italia Ortofrutta

A new identity

The last months we announced a contest open to the students of Liceo Artistico Statale Paolo Toschi in Parma to realize of our new brand.
A project that involved and stimulated us and that allowed us to reward three young students for their commitment and passion they have reserved for us.
You can begin to see our new brand on our fields and as soon as on the overall corporate communication.
The tomato cultivated by ASIPO is 100% of Italian origin and cultivated according to the most rigorous standards of food safety and sustainability. We cultivate it with love, respecting the environment, workers and consumers and deliver it to the processing tomatoes industries that will transform our product in the tomato sauce and pulp which are used every day in kitchens all over the world.
We would like to thank all the students of the fifth and third class who participated, hoping in the future to have other opportunities to work with students and schools to let them to know our world and the tomato industry supply chain.
Furthermore, we would like to thank our technician Selena Sarli who followed the whole project in these months.

ASIPO for the social

ASIPO per il sociale

Last December we allocated 5,000.00 euros to the Pediatric Unit of the Parma Hospital  and 5,000.00 euros to the Pediatric Unit of the Piacenza Hospital for the purchase of medical equipment.

These donations were accepted with successive Management Determination n. 08 of 08.02.2022 of the ASL of Piacenza and the company protocol at n. 52534 of 23.12.2021 and subsequently supplemented with a note registered at n. 52847 of 27.12.2021 of the Hospital of Parma.

Our company takes care the need of our community. For this reason we decided to give this contribution to our territory, to do our part to support the development and improvement of our society.

Among the various important social issues we decided to focus on the world of childhood and, in particular, on the pediatric diseases. For this reason our donation has gone to our hospitals as a contribution to purchase the necessary equipment to assist young patients and treat them in the best possible way.

What are the phases that characterize the production of tomato seedlings? What technologies are used to ensure the quality of the seedlings to be transplanted?

In the second part, we go to see live the phase of transplantation of tomato seedlings for industry.

This is one of the most critical phases of the tomato production process. New technologies allow to facilitate and improve the uniformity and quality of transplantation thanks to automatic transplanting machines. In the episode we can see one of these machines at work.

But what are the costs of these machines? What are the difficulties that our members have to face in this campaign?
