PONTINATURA - BABY LEAVESTHE COOPERATIVE AND THE GROUP
Founded in 2008 Pontinatura aims to provide Customers with high quality products and a constant first rate service, empowering them to count on this service 12 months a year.
Benefiting from a 30 years’ experience of its founders in all the phases of the agricultural/industrial IV range process, Pontinatura fully understand the needs of Clients and is confident of supplying fresh and healthy products, grown following the principles of integrated pest control.
The company relies on the constant cooperation between associates, all located in the heart of a well-known area called Agro Pontino. They provide the very majority of goods on daily basis and all year long.
During winter time, when the yields in the fields get lower, Pontinatura put in place small programs with external suppliers. They allow the company to cover the eventual lack of products and guarantee the continuity of supplies.
Besides the production of IV range, Pontinatura is interested in all those companies, Italians and not, who deal with the commercialization of baby leaf. We regularly serve Clients all over Italy and in the most important European countries.
THE RANGE OF PRODUCTS
Pontinatura is highly specialized in handling and commercializing baby leafs.
The products can be provided in different kinds of crates depending on Customers’ needs: the most utilized are Black Crates, IFCO of various sizes, crates supplied from the Clients and polystyrene boxes.
See the technical sheet for more information.
THE ORGANIC SIDE OF THE GROUP
The Cooperative aims to offer a complete range of products. This means that the range has to contain kinds of baby leaves different in aspect and in nature as well. Encouraged by a continuous and increasing demand of organic products, from the market and from the current clients, Pontinatura decided to give the right importance to the organic side of the group, dedicating to this branch whole farms and covering about 28 hectares.
Pontinatura’s services are based on the coordination between: multiple growers, their farms, several daily harvests, the cooling systems and the general handling of the products.
The headquarter is located in Latina: here the goods are brought together, traced, cooled by the Vacuum Cooler and stored before being sent out to the Clients. .
Particular attention is paid to the traceability system: every detail concerning the traceability, upstream and downstream, is filed for years.
Another fundamental aspect is the maintaining of a steady low temperature: the vacuum cooler system is regularly applied and goods are delivered to the Client by refrigerated Lorries.
THE ASSOCIATES: PRESENT AND FUTURE
