The members are committed to cultivating daily, respecting the stricter and highest national and global food quality and safety standards.

Over time, ASIPO wanted to “certify” itself for these standards, that is, we want to declare worldwide that we comply with the requirements of the agreed national and international standards which support us to constantly improve the quality of our products and cultivation processes.

These quality improvement processes are monitored and certified by an external ‘super partes’ body, which verifies that we meet these standards to safeguard our customers and end consumers.

All our production systems comply with the provisions of the international voluntary standard UNI EN ISO 22005: 08 “Traceability system in agri-food chains”.

As head of the supply chain we check all the traceability of information from the purchase of the seed to the delivery of the raw material to the processing industry. We make sure we only grow non-GMO varieties.

All our productions are 100% certified Italian origin.

All our industrial tomatoes come 100% from mechanical harvesting.

These last two aspects are important goals achieved by our supply chain.

All tomato cultivation is certified for integrated production with a Controlled Quality Brand of the Emilia Romagna region according to the Regional Law 28/99. It is a sustainable production system that pursues the objective of minimizing the use of synthetic chemicals, and of preserving natural resources such as water, energy, natural areas and the soil according to the rules well defined in the Guidelines for Integrated Production.

Our crops are supervised by expert technicians and qualified consultants for phytosanitary defense with low intake of phytosanitary products (implementation of directive 2009/128/EU).

We have joined the GlobalG.A.P. reference certification (they represent the guidelines for Good Agricultural Practices) and almost 50% of our members are certified.

Since 2019 we have decided to join the GRASP assessment which is the Add-on of GlobalG.A.P. on Good Social Practices on the aspects of health, safety and welfare of workers. For a supply chain that is careful not only to product safety, but also to the protection of people.

Our tomato is ISCC PLUS certified, an international standard of environmental sustainability recognized by the main international brands and thanks to this certification it is recognized as equivalent to the FSA Silver Level.

Statement of equivalence to FSA levels is written in accordance with the Guide to Making FSA Statements and Claims and confirmed by the Sustainable Agricultural Initiative Platform (SAI Platform), which owns the FSA.

The Sustainable Agricultural Initiative Platform (SAI Platform) is one of the leading global initiatives in the food and beverage value chain for sustainable agriculture.

There are over 130 participants in this platform (including Barilla, Nestlé, Unilever, etc.) and you can find them listed here.

Furthermore, part of the members has joined organic production and for this reason we are certified for the marketing organic products according to current legislation and we also verify that the members comply.

Only such a tracked and monitored system can be the guardian of the trust of our clients and consumers for our products.

As.IPO includes all Good Agricultural Practices in its Sustainable Supply Chain policy. A document divided into three parts: a guideline for the product crops of its own interest, in particular industrial tomatoes, to guide the producer members to proper good agricultural practices to be implemented; a Code of Ethics for a quality of work that is fair, equitable, legal and safe; an Environmental Policy for a supply chain committed to protecting the environment and ecosystems.
