COMMITMENT

Total control of the supply chain, respect for the environment and attention to people:
we are committed to guaranteeing safe products of certified quality in Italy and worldwide.

Only quality-controlled fruits and vegetables

Since 1955, we at Spreafico have been working with a passion and desire to offer people only the best fruits and vegetables, growing them and selecting them solely from production areas that ensure the highest quality. From preparation of the soil right through to the harvest, our technicians ensure that the products grown on our farms are not only healthy, safe and sustainable, but also that they conform to precise quality parameters.

With careful attention we monitor the growth stages of our fruits and vegetables in the field, making sure to pick them only when ready. Our agronomists support the daily work of the farmers in Italy and abroad with whom we have long-standing trusting relationships.

Environment: our commitment to a greener future

Our knowhow prompts us to pay close attention not only to the quality of our products, but also to the fields in which Spreafico fruit grows. We work day after day trying to minimize the impact of our activities on the environment, reducing the use of fertilizers and chemical additives in the field, and using sustainable agriculture techniques.

What is more, from 2020 onwards, the electricity our sites use will come from 100% renewable sources.

We have a close connection with nature and the environment—they are our greatest allies. To safeguard them, we are committed to minimizing the use of plastic in our packaging, replacing it with environmentally friendly material that is easy to recycle and sort at home.
