Fruchthandel: Simonato presents BioKepos3

01 September 2018

"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.
