The Fruit and Vegetable Producers organisation SOTEA SOC. COOP. AGR., was established in 1999 thanks to some young farmers who shared their willingness for cooperation; they created this cooperative body in order to produce and market their agricultural products.
In just a few years SOTEA SOC. COOP. AGR. has become a leading entrepreneurial reality, rising from its 19 founding members in 1999 to its 32 current members.
The production sites are located between the towns of San Felice Circeo, Sabaudia and Terracina; an area characterised by a particular soil and climate, optimal for cultivating vegetables.
NOT JUST QUALITY
Thanks to careful and targeted planning, we are able to meet the business needs of all domestic and foreign markets. SOTEA SOC.COOP.AGR. has a warehouse where it receives all produce; after passing the incoming quality controls, the produce is selected and packaged for sale with the help of seasonal labour which during peak periods can increase up to 90/100 units.
During these years, SOTEA has invested in strengthening its corporate structure, expanding the warehouse and purchasing equipment for processing vegetables. To date, it features:
– 1 UNITEC sorting and grading line for courgettes, eggplant and tomatoes;
– 1 processing machine for courgettes;
– 1 radish washing line;
– 1 salad washing line;
– 1 tray-packer for courgette flowers;
– 2 approx. 400 m/cube cold rooms for goods storage
