"We would like to increase our export volumes even more by focusing on Northern European countries"

Semplice Tre C was founded in 2000 by the Castiglione and Celeste families. Today it is one of the largest cultivation companies of quality tomatoes in southeastern Sicily. In the Acate Valley, cherry, datterino and mini plum tomatoes are grown in greenhouses on 50 hectares.

"The cultivation takes place in greenhouses and allows us to meet an ever-growing demand for fresh and sustainable fruits and vegetables. In 2021, we harvested, packaged and marketed about 6,000 tons of high-quality tomatoes, most of them in Italy. We have exported 15% to Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Romania and Malta. We would like to increase our export volumes even more by focusing on Northern European countries, where the product is marketed based on its total value, consisting of tradition, taste, ethics, healthy characteristics, traceability, reliability and continuous supply," said Concetta and Alice Celeste of Tre C.

"All tomatoes are grown under the careful supervision of Tre C's cultivation managers, which represents a huge guarantee of quality. Our company has GlobalGAP, GRASP and IFS certification," said the Castigliones, who are cousins.

Healthy, tasty and above all fresh                                                    Tre C follows a strict harvest schedule based on the market demand. All tomatoes are harvested and shipped within twelve hours. This ensures a long shelf life for the tomatoes on the market.

Fruit Logistica 2022 and challenges for the future                        "Our presence in Berlin fits with our company's goals. Meeting our customers and other players in the supply chain is a moment of enrichment. We noticed a good interest in our product. Visitors to our booth were attracted by the bright red color of the tomatoes. Another eye-catching element is the 100% plastic-free, cardboard packaging of 500 grams. Tre C embraces sustainable choices to meet the market demand for an environmentally friendly product. Now we want to accelerate the internationalization process of our company by scaling up production even more and filling the market gap created by the lower harvest from the exposed greenhouses because of the energy crisis," said the company executives during the trade show.
