Commitment, awareness, professionalism and expertise are the common guidelines within the company to achieve all goals and ensure the customer is offered products that have been inspected and certified according to regulations.

We have implemented a corporate quality system involving the entire chain of production, from the countryside to the finished, packaged product ready to be sold; this is a necessary requirement in order to deal with increasingly demanding markets.
New investments, technologies and multiple inspections along the entire production chain were implemented so that we are recognized as reliable, professional suppliers and partners in a highly competitive market.

Focusing our attention on the entire production chain allows us to comply with the supply specifications required to supply the Italian and foreign large-scale retail trade.

We boast quality standards in line with HACCP regulations (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point), in addition to food safety projects and the Apo Scaligera Quality System. This project also involves applying production techniques to all farm members to ensure a low impact on the environment and to increase the guarantees of healthy products for the final consumer.


Our company complies with the following regulations:

  • HACCP: Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, CE 178-2002, 852-2004 regulations “Implementation of EU directive on food hygiene”. Self-control system. Applied in the three warehouses managed by APO SCALIGERA

Involvement of 120 associated farms signing the membership form undertaking to uphold the dispositions of the standard (observance of binding regulations, harvest regulations, defence regulations, etc.).
