BIONEWS

18 December 2018 THINK GREEN BIO The 5th and the 12th of November saw Rovigo play host to the Think Green Bio course promoted by the Intesa SanPaolo Formazione Group. The event was attended by numerous participants, including Ms. Belinda Piasentin and Ms. Giada Favaro of the Due Carrare company Simonato, which will be celebrating 20 years of organic certification in just a few months' time. The challenging course focused on the importance of the organic sector, the current trends and the potentials for the future. In recent years, in fact, consumer attention on organic food has grown significantly, so much so that new consumer behaviours have emerged centred around developing new lifestyles. The increase in demand comes from informed customers who are well versed in the subject matter and the European regulations, which bring all the member states under the same legislature and impose the obligation of adhering to increasingly higher quality standards on businesses of all sizes. These companies represent the excellence of Italy and Europe and, although while often small in size, they are the true driving force of agriculture through their efforts not only in creating solid opportunities for the future, but also in protecting the environment and biodiversity. These two days of training were extremely important because only with the support of the institutions and with the exchange of information can we create a more organic future for everyone.

15 October 2018 ORGANIC CHRISTMAS STARS The company Simonato from Due Carrare, specialising in the horticulture, floriculture and nursery sector for three generations, has introduced a wonderful novelty this year: certified organic Christmas Stars. The Christmas Star (or Poinsettia) begins to take its place in the spaces set aside for the cultivation of aromatic plants from mid-August and continues to grow at a slow pace. It is only with the shortened days during the autumn period, in fact, that we begin to see the typical red colouration of the leaves around the yellow flower. "We have cultivated the Christmas Stars with great care," says Carlo Simonato, owner of the company, and this year, thanks to our greenhouses and favourable climatic conditions, the 2018 crop is extraordinarily beautiful. The most important thing and the one which Carlo Simonato is most proud of, is that they are grown using organic methods and also in full respect of the organic protocol. Our Christmas Stars will be the symbol of our first organic Christmas. We are very happy that there will finally be a plant cultivated with great love and attention and without the use of any chemicals or pesticides on your Christmas-decorated tables at home. Distinguishing the organic Poinsettias is made easy by the fact that they are packaged with a label bearing the name of the ICEA certification authority and the European organic flag.   A Merry Organic-Christmas to One and All!

01 October 2018 BIOKEPOS3 - Mater Natura Gratias Agit The Company Simonato is pleased to present its organic certification aromatic plants with a completely new and innovative look: BioKepos3, the eco-friendly packaging. The plants are kept in a pot made out of natural vegetable fibres which, when the plant has been used, can be transferred directly into a larger container or into the soil in the garden or placed into the compost bin. The transparent bag is also certified vegetable fibre, and after use, should be thrown in the organic waste bin for composting. The information sheet printed with certified colours on food-quality paper can be placed in the paper recycling container after use. We have put a big effort into this new project, says Rosanna Bertoldin, sales manager of the company Simonato, and we have chosen the manufacturers of the components of our new product with great care. On each individual package we also report each of the certificates since we believe that it is important to assure our customers of a product of excellence that meets all the organic, environmentally friendly and recyclable requirements.   Find Out More!

28 September 2018 DOGK 2018 The 20th and 21st of September marked the German fruit and vegetable convention in Düsseldorf. It consisted of two very intense days, with many speakers and presentations of companies of the industry as well as a wonderful opportunity for presenting new products. The convention building nestled on the banks of the river Rhine hosted buyers and producers from all over the world, who came to participate in the convention structured with talks from important personalities in the field of economics and psychology, who took the opportunity to present their analysis of our society, our eating habits and the needs of the current population. It was a moment of reflection and comparison to analyse how customer needs and eating habits are determined by the now frenetic pace of life for everyone the world over. Our society is moving at such a rapid pace that it has little time to stop and consider that food is the fundamental component of our life. We believe that our presentation of an organic product in recyclable and biodegradable packaging is the only coherent choice for a healthier future that respects the environment. Simonato cultivates certified organic aromatic plants in a host of varieties for most of the year and offers its aromatic plants as a valid alternative for the preparation of delicious dishes without the addition of elaborate seasonings or salt. Our society is becoming more and more demanding. Supermarket chains have a great duty of care for the nutrition of the population and their choice of collaboration with producers who are able to assure a high quality product that respects of the environment is the only viable way.  In Germany Simonato also had the opportunity to present its BioKepos3 product, consisting of an organic aromatic plant, a biodegradable pot, a compostable bag and a recyclable food-quality sheet of paper: an Italian organic product par excellence. <div style="text-align: center;

01 September 2018 Fruchthandel: Simonato presents BioKepos3 "For a more Organic future". This is the motto which inspired the producer of organic aromatic plants owned by the Simonato Brothers from Due Carrare in the province of Padua to introduce a line of innovative packaging that responds to the needs for greater sustainability. In 2000, Simonato started its own certified organic production and asserted itself in the domestic market and, in recent times, even in international markets with its range of organic aromatic plants such as basil, sage, rosemary and mint, in addition to special aromatic varieties such as hot chili peppers, chervil, chamomile and liquorice. The aromatic plants are grown inside greenhouses in accordance with the strict guidelines of the Organic Regulation. "Our products are healthy, natural and certified organic and we have chosen to market them in a pot with soil which gives them life and nourishment" says Rosanna Bertoldin, sales manager of the company. "We believe that it is important to offer our products to customers in plant form, as they are real plants which sustain and feed us. They are not twigs cut ready to store in the refrigerator, but plants that need light and water in our homes. And for even greater sustainability and in order to give continuity to our plants, we now offer a new line of packaging called BioKepos3. "Kepos derives from the Greek word for garden, the number 3 on the other hand represents the strengths of our new package" explains Carlo Simonato, owner of the company. The new line of packaging comprises a pot made out of biodegradable vegetable fibres, a compostable bag and a sheet of recyclable food-quality paper. This new line only uses certified products of excellence since it is only with innovative, environmentally friendly and sustainable choices that we can build a more organic future together.

02 August 2018 Organic? It's good for you On 21 July 2018 a contribution appeared on D di Repubblica from the Senator for life Elena Cattaneo entitled: "Organic? It's good for you. But only if you produce it". At Simonato, based in Due Carrare in the province of Padua, although acknowledging Cattaneo's opinion, we feel obliged to focus some attention on the key points of the paper (overlooking many others worthy of the same attention), namely the use of plant protection products.  Here, we will provide our point of view, leaving it up to the reader to form an informed and well-balanced opinion. Firstly, we note that an Organic Company must strictly respect European Regulation no. 884 of 2008 and is subject to strict periodic controls by an external Certifier, independent from the producer company so as to avoid any conflict of interest and to protect consumers. If these controls identify the presence of residues of plant protection products not permitted in the organic protocol, the Company loses its certification and may not supply the product to the distribution chains.   This is a huge guarantee for the health of consumers, both children and adults. With regard, then, to the type of plant protection products permitted in organic farming, we remind Senator Cattaneo that the "weapons" that can be used by a producer to defend against fungi and parasites are limited to a few active ingredients, derived from plants (such as Neem Oil and Pyrethrins) or that leave absolutely no residues in the food eaten by consumers. Incidentally, it beggars belief that Cattaneo focuses on the use of Copper, allowed in the organic protocol, perhaps ignoring the fact that its use is regulated by a strict rule (4 kg. per hectare per year) and that this metal, used since ancient times, absolutely does not represent a problem for end consumers given that producers cannot distribute it close to the sale, it can be removed by simple washing and any anomalies of use are identified by the external Certifier during routine checks. On the other hand, what happens and what are the consequences for consumers and for the environment in "conventional" cultivations not subject to the rigidity of Organic Regulation? On this essential point, the Senator, surprisingly, remains silent. A "conventional" producer is only obliged to respect the pre-harvest intervals (i.e. the days before sale) indicated on the plant protection product packaging: it is unfortunately well-known that external controls on the presence of residues are scarce due to a lack of resources within Public Bodies.   A "conventional" producer, can, as a result, distribute what it sees fit, in the quantities that it deems appropriate, perhaps choosing from the cheapest products, which often leave persistent residues over time. The result of this indiscriminate use of plant protection products is the distribution on foodstuffs that reach Italian tables, and into the waters that are released into the environment, of about 136,000 tonnes per annum of pesticide molecules. The consequences were closely monitored by ISPRA (Italian Institute for Environmental Protection and Research) between 2015 and 2016 by taking 35,000 surface and deep water samples. The results revealed the presence of a good 259 extraneous molecules. Surface waters are polluted in Veneto in 90% of cases, in Lombardy in 70% and in Emilia Romagna in 80%. Merely by way of example, atrazine, a dangerous herbicide banned for 26 years, is still present in our waters. Rigorous scientific studies have demonstrated the presence in children's blood of pesticide residues and their contemporary accumulation in the nervous system and glands of the endocrine system. If examined, even those among us born between the 1930s and 1960s would find in our bones residues of the notorious DDT, as found at one time in the fat of polar bears. Do we want to continue on this path, Senator Cattaneo? At Simonato we say no, supported by the certainty of creating a better world towards which we are working every day together with at least another 70,000 Italian producers and consumers (increasing every year in double digit percentages) who, like us, demand a healthy and safe world for everybody.

18 July 2018 Organic mint: aromatic plant of the month Mint is an aromatic plant belonging to the family of Lamiaceae and Labiatae originating from Europe and then disseminated widely across the world, including North America, Australia and Japan. Cultivated since ancient times for its many properties, remains of mint leaves were found in Egyptian tombs dating back to the year 1000 AC. The Romans, during their expansion, disseminated it throughout Europe and from Great Britain, with the settlers, it arrived in today's United States of America. The naturalist writer Pliny the Elder in his Naturalis Historia published in 77 describes its numerous medicinal, refreshing and invigorating properties. King Charlemagne, who was an aromatic herb enthusiast, gave orders for it to be cultivated regularly throughout the Empire.   An alcohol known as menthol can be extracted from mint, which is used by the industry in addition to soaps, toothpastes and syrup solutions. Mint's most widespread and frequent use is in cooking as the leaves of organic mint can be used to prepare wonderful refreshing drinks, such as water and mint, milk and mint, or well-known alcoholic drinks. When added to simple dishes, such as fresh salads, it gives a unique and tasty flavour. Small leaves added to white rice limit the use of salt and seasoning and the aftertaste is reminiscent of Mediterranean flavours. Its persistent and particular flavour makes it ideal for creating cakes and soft desserts. The Company Simonato offers organic mint plants throughout the whole year, cultivating the varieties that are most suited to the type of season. Mint is cultivated by the cutting method and therefore, small branches are cut from the mother plants which are sown into organic soil, giving life to a new plant. Simonato cultivates in respect of organic regulations and its certifications guarantee a healthy and natural product. This year it offers an eye-catching bag with the image of a famous cocktail which we offer in the version with just water, mint and lime! If you have an organic plant on your terrace or in the kitchen, you can find out how to keep your organic mint plants healthy on our website.

05 July 2018 The Renaissance of Aromatic Herbs Enthusiasm for Mediterranean cuisine has grown in recent years to the point of now being an integral part of the nutrition of younger generations from Italy to the north of Europe and towards the countries of the East: millions of people appreciate its healthy properties and fresh flavours. Aromatic plants are essential for creating many Mediterranean dishes, with some of the most popular and well-known being rosemary, basil, oregano, sage, thyme, etc.; others are less well known but equally flavoursome, such as lemon balm, tarragon, chervil and watercress and for this reason they are present in mass retail chains and also in small food stores, as well as being found in bunches at the weekly markets. The growing demand for aromatic herbs for both culinary and therapeutic use has led many companies to specialise, with many of them now offering hundreds of different types of aromatic plants, including exotic species. Others go even further and not only cultivate plants in pots but dry the seeds to offer products such as flavoured salt, herbal teas or oils and flavoured vinegars. There are then those who, in respect of nature and according to strict rules of legislation on organic production, cultivate from the seed to the adult plant, out of a duty to contribute to the growth of a clean world. Sensitive and inquisitive consumers can then request further information on how to care for the plants at home or in their gardens, as well as in cooking, and this is why some producers also offer seminars and conferences on the topic. The Company Simonato has cultivated organic aromatic plants in its greenhouses for almost twenty years, in respect of a strict protocol regulated by European laws. With love and dedication, it tends to the growth of every single plant until, adequately packaged, it is delivered to the distribution channels only then to reach the kitchens of consumers where it is used as an integral element for creating delicious dishes. The use of organic aromatic plants to replace salt or other flavour enhancers is a healthy and conscious choice for correct nutrition. We are experiencing the true Renaissance of organic Aromatic Plants and Simonato's offer of organic aromatic plants in the pot with soil is the way to recall the true value of nature. Eating healthy and natural food, presented with the roots still in the soil in which it was planted and grown, is very important as we want to leave a sign for our younger generations never to forget that the earth, nature, plants and the environment are essential to our lives.

With love and dedication, it tends to the growth of every single plant until, adequately packaged, it is delivered to the distribution channels only then to reach the kitchens of consumers where it is used as an integral element for creating delicious dishes. The use of organic aromatic plants to replace salt or other flavour enhancers is a healthy and conscious choice for correct nutrition. We are experiencing the true Renaissance of organic Aromatic Plants and Simonato's offer of organic aromatic plants in the pot with soil is the way to recall the true value of nature. Eating healthy and natural food, presented with the roots still in the soil in which it was planted and grown, is very important as we want to leave a sign for our younger generations never to forget that the earth, nature, plants and the environment are essential to our lives.
