Noberasco, partnership with Bonifiche Ferraresi is strengthened
The development of new 100% Italian supply chains is planned
Bonifiche Ferraresi, an Italian farm with 8300 hectares of agricultural land used in Italy, a company of the Bf Spa Group listed on the Milan stock exchange, and Noberasco, a company operating in Italy in the dried and dehydrated fruit sector, have signed a medium period for the development of new Italian supply chains in the reference sectors. After the appreciation gathered by the initiative launched at the beginning of September 2020 with the project of the certified Italian peanut supply chain, made possible thanks to the collaboration between Sis, Noberasco and Coldiretti (see EFA News article of 15/9/2020 ) , the two companies decided to consolidate their partnership, studying new supply chain projects and new application sectors for the entire national territory. The objective of this agreement, which will initially have a five-year perspective, will be to invest and consolidate the production and marketing of 100% Italian products in the reference segments of Noberasco, tracked and certified. All this thanks to the applications of digital agriculture able to guarantee economic returns, respect for the environment and superior quality products.
The agreement provides for a series of activities related to research and development of projects that will lead to the marketing of crops that are currently not present on the national territory but which, due to their characteristics and peculiarities, blend well with the Italian agricultural context.
Mattia Noberasco comments: “We are very satisfied with this agreement. The project of the certified Italian peanut supply chain, presented last September after three years of work, research and experimentation, is a clear example of what goals can be achieved when excellences work in synergy. Our goal was, and continues to be, to create something truly distinctive, unique in the country, which knows how to show the consumer the values underlying the 'Noberasco Method': ethics, sustainability, traceability, enhancement of national productions. Values that we have found in the partner with whom we have decided to walk side by side for the next five years: I am sure that the results will not fail”.
