Code of Ethics: for a higher quality of Work that is fair, equitable, legal and safe

The people’s life quality who works for us and for our farms has always been a topic that is particularly close to our hearts and for this reason we have further defined a document with which we would like to spread greater awareness of the importance of this issue to our Members and also to our partners.

This is intended as a further step to continue improving these aspects within our supply chain, adopting responsible behaviour towards the whole society.

Environmental Policy: for a supply chain increasingly committed to protecting the environment and ecosystems

Our association has always promoted environmental protection for the benefit of the whole community through the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices (such as integrated or organic production, precision agriculture, the circular economy of waste, etc.).

These practices are designed to reduce the effects of so-called industrial farming, applying agronomic techniques that are respectful of the environment and workers and which improve our ecosystems conditions over time (e.g. by increasing the organic substance in the soil, flora and fauna sustainability, reducing the negative effects of climate change, etc.).
