Fortunato Ferrisi and Carmelo Giuffrida (T18 sales manager, distributor of Ferrisi tomatoes) in the company stand at Macfrut 2013.

"Despite the complex political and economical situation, 2013 has been a rather encouraging year for us. In fact, we increased our production areas and we expect to increase yields by 40%, as the markets in Germany and Switzerland should be able to absorb the produce. Unfortunately, Italy is facing some difficulties," explains Fortunato Ferrisi.
