Processing, production, and logistics – all in Italy
Rigoni di Asiago is today a high-quality company that offers high-quality certified organic products.
For more than 15 years, the company has operated its own supply chain, controlling all of the working processes, from the cultivation of the raw materials to the packaging of the finished products.
All of this happens under the direction of the operations center in Asiago, which handles the strategic management of the company’s commercial activities.
The production facility was established amid the greenery of the unspoiled mountain area of Foza, on the Asiago Plateau. Here, everything is designed to reduce energy consumption. The production lines were built in Italy, and many of them were designed exclusively and patented for Rigoni di Asiago.
Approximately 6,000 tons of fruit are processed every year. The production cycle is fully automated and controlled by computers. All of the steps and phases are recorded, so as to ensure the traceability of the raw materials that are used. The Foza plant has a packaging capacity of approximately 18,000 units per hour.
The company also has a logistics center, located in Albaredo d’Adige, near Verona, where the finished products are stored.
Organic culture and supply-chain control
In Bulgaria, on a land that is dedicated entirely to organic agriculture and that enjoys a favorable climate, Rigoni di Asiago does its own farming, harvesting most of the fruit which is used in the preparation of Fiordifrutta.
These activities have expanded and grown over time, with new land acquisitions. Annual production is on the order of 3,000 tons, divided among strawberries, mixed berries, blackberries, plums, cherries, sour cherries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, apples, blueberries, and sloes.
Rigoni di Asiago also controls the supply chains for all of the other fruits and honeys, thanks to multi-year agreements signed with organic farmers and beekeepers. These sources provide all of the Italian honeys and Mediterranean fruits, such as: oranges, lemons, mandarins, peaches, and apricots, among others. Robust, in-depth control of the supply chain ensures the highest quality of the raw materials.
