Over the past few years, among other things, they have made an important contribution to the environment and against climate change. In fact, they have re-naturalized 7% of their land and now a fifth of the cultivated areas are destined for organic farming. They have always given large and constant productions to support the cooperative supply chain and its members and are partners for the research and dissemination of innovations ».
