Italy: Organic vegetables flourish in the valleys of the Pre-Alps near Bergamo

ZSeeds Italia repeated its experience at 900 metres above sea level this year too. It did it at the "Cà del Mans" organic company in Adriano Carrara, which is already part of Bergamo's ARETE bio circuit.

In a scenery which would be more suitable for long walks looking for mushrooms and small fruits, Adriano Carrara, with the help of Paolo Ispano, a ZSeeds technician, uses his experience on organic productions in the valleys of the Pre-Apls near Bergamo. Products are sold directly on site or at the shop in Val Serina, and they attract a lot of visitors and holiday-makers looking for authentic flavours.

ZSeeds managers mention that, "we have assisted the production of numerous vegetables (in greenhouses/tunnels/nets and open fields) which, thanks to the ideal soil and climate conditions, temperature changes and to the fact that pesticides are not used, have a high quality and great organoleptic characteristics. They have colours and flavours that only mountain produce can have, not to mention that they don't over-ripen and they have a long shelf-life."

We were able to take a look at the whole range of tomatoes, courgettes, melons, lettuce, peppers and cucumbers. The produce is grown between May and October, a period where it is still possible to produce naturally, especially thanks to technical support and to ZSeeds products, a company able to grasp the trend of the market.

"What generally strikes people is the dimension of the plots, as the produce is not only destined to a niche local market, but it can actually play a substantial role on the surrounding territory, thanks to a circuit that can promote the organoleptic qualities and the continuity of the supply. A successful bond between artisan passion and a good quality/quantity."

ZSeeds Italia and Adriano Carrara will define a new programme for the next season. The company will experiment with new products that have been specifically studied for the organic sector from an agronomic and commercial point of view. A sector that is expanding thanks to the interest of consumers, who are generally more aware when they choose final products.
