The La Marostegana Agri-business is located in the territory between the Berici hills and the river Brenta, where the soil quality, availability of spring water and mildness of the climate combine to create a perfect environment for growing vegetables. For generations, the farm was geared towards cultivating fodder and breeding livestock, today´s business is the result od trasforming the family Firm into a complete agri-food industry: from producing to trasforming and marketing cut salads.
The surface are, all of it owned, is around 80 hectares in extent in Piazzola Sul Brenta in the province of Padova and arond 12 hectares in extent in the Sele Plain in the province of Salerno where we grow roquette mostly in the winter in order to ensure continuity of supply throughtout the year.
By corporate choice, harvesting the salads is performed by hand and without the aid of machinery to ensure that there is a first selection of the product in the field and that foreign bodies are eliminated.
Our processing unit is 2000 sq. mt. in area with four modern packing lines, two for the first range (unwashed products) and two for the fourth range (washed product). Transforming the raw material into a ready to use washed product is maximum health safety with an excellent level of quality.
