Agribusiness in Tuscany

Worldwide Quality and Excellence

Is there anyone in the world who has never heard talk of the full and unmistakable flavor of Chianti Classico? Or who has not been left enchanted by the intense, fragrant scent of extra virgin olive oil born of the green hills of Tuscany? Certainly not. It is the union of unique areas, ancient knowledge, and innovative paths that has led to the birth of the extraordinary quality of Tuscan agrifood products. Wine, olive oil, coffee, dairy products, and cold cuts are just some of the noble ambassadors of Tuscan gourmet delicacies that are famous throughout the world. A sector with its strength deeply rooted in history, yet without losing sight of the future of production technology.

In Tuscany, the area dedicated to organic agriculture exceeds a hundred thousand hectares, and there are more than four thousand organic farm operations registered in our regional register. Thanks to the broad range of agrifood products that are certified as PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographical Indication), the region of Tuscany makes up 10.4% of the certified production in Italy. The accessibility to raw materials combined with the recognizability of the Tuscany brand throughout the world make this region the ideal place to locate an entrepreneurial activity dedicated to the production and sale of top quality agrifood products.
