Italy: Zuccherissima pumpkin range attracts attention

At the recent edition of Macfrut 2017, the stand of "Fornari Giuseppe" from Asola (Mantova) was one of those that attracted the most attention. Fuchsia and black dominated both the stand and the staff's uniforms, together with smiling faces and well-displayed products. 


Diced pumpkin part of the Zuccherissima range

A lot of space was dedicated to "Zuccherissima" pumpkin dices. Sales director Damiano Fornari explained that "the product is diced by hand and ready to cook. It has a shelf-life of over 12 days. We used the Delica variety, which has a great texture, dry-matter content and Brix level."

"Zuccherissima Take Away" was also very interesting. It is a range of easy to transport pumpkins thanks to the cardboard packaging equipped with handles. The minimum guaranteed weight is 1 kg. The packet reports all product information as well as advice for preparation. 

"Delica pumpkins are all exposed to sunlight during the coolest hours of the day, favouring a slower dry matter concentration. They are cultivated in Italy and can be recognised by the red wax on the stalk. Crates hold between 3 and 6 pieces according to product size and we guarantee a shelf-life of 40 days."



The company owns 300 hectares between Mantua and Tuscany. Sugar loaf, endive and curly endive packaged as single-portions were also on display at the stand.



The Lady Leaf Snacks proved the most popular (www.ladyleaf.it). They are endive hearts combined with crunchy ingredients such as dried fruit or dried blueberries, olives etc. supplied with olive oil sachets, mini-tongs to eat without getting dirty and a mini-napkin. Everything comes in a practical container with an average shelf-life of 8 days.
