Gli Orti di Giulietta
Is a brand of O.P. Nordest s.c.a., an organisation of producers that comprises more than 250 farmers, farming businesses and fruit and vegetable cooperatives. The Gli Orti Di Giulietta brand was created to protect, enhance and promote the fruit and vegetable produce typical of the Verona area. To this end, 1992 saw the establishment of the Verona Fruit and Vegetable Producers’ Consortium, which adopted the collective commercial brand name “Gli Orti di Giulietta”. The brand name is associated with the image of a literary character, known and loved worldwide, that is identified with the local area and its landscape, history, culture and traditions.
All Gli Orti Di Giulietta products are grown in the province of Verona, an area with a long tradition of producing quality fruit and vegetables. The province of Verona is a living testament to a farming culture that has succeeded in striking a skilful balance between technology and tradition, and between a love of the local area with an open approach to what lies beyond it. This balance has allowed for the development of an impressive range of typical farm crops that deserves to be safeguarded, shared, improved and promoted.
Supply Chain: from the fields to your kitchen
Gli Orti Di Giulietta products are grown with loving care by each individual member farmer. They are then carefully selected in our facilities and packaged in complete safety. Thanks to the painstaking efforts of our specialised hauliers, the products reach your supermarket fresh from the farm, guaranteeing you all the goodness of Verona’s fine fruit and vegetables!
The producers are the heart of our association: 250 farmers and their businesses that entrust their produce to a single supply chain able to provide them with technical support, guaranteeing and making the most of the fruits of their land. Fruit and vegetables grown with care, in compliance with rigorous standards and regulations, to provide a top-quality response to consumers’ demands.
