“The Maremma area boasts quite the product range, which we have been commercializing for years. Our facility in Grosseto is currently processing local products such as apricots, melons, blueberries, zucchini with and without flowers, bunch tomatoes, date and canestrino tomatoes, eggplants and spring onions. Of course everything is organic”, underlines Salvatore Scarcella, president of OP CAI.
Sicilian CAI (Cooperativa Agricoltori Ionici) has been operating in the organic sector since 2001. It mainly produces citrus fruit but, in 2016, it decided to open a facility in Tuscany dedicated to organic products from the Maremma area. 
Compared to last year when frost damaged the fruit, especially apricots and plums, quantities are considerable this year. However consumption is not satisfactory.
“We believe the lower consumption could be due to inflation. Of course we continue doing our job and focusing on quality, since Maremma boasts an excellent climate for the cultivation of organic fruits and vegetables. At the moment, our Grosseto facility is also processing white seedless grapes, lemons from Sicily and carrots from Abruzzo”.
CAI has a big potential in export to European markets.
