Donated 22,100 euro raised by Macfrut for an agricultural firm in Amatrice

A total of 22,100 euro has been raised for a fruit and vegetable producer based in Amatrice. During the last edition of Macfrut, an appeal was made to businesses in the sector, which agreed to “lend a hand” to an agricultural firm seriously affected by the terrible earthquake that recently occurred in Central Italy.
The firm supported is that of Antonio Scialanga, based in Amatrice, a family business that he runs with his wife, which was severely damaged by the earthquake. It produces strawberries on an area of about one hectare and a half, with small fruits grown open field in a 3,500-metre area and, for next year, it has planned to install another 2,500 metres of greenhouses. It is a small agricultural firm with 14 co-workers that, from late May to November, grows high-quality produce thanks to high altitude cultivation.
The ceremony for the donation, made directly to these young farmers, took place on Thursday 1 December in Amatrice, attended by the managers of Cesena Fiera and the businesses in the sector who took part in this charity initiative.
Here is a list of the businesses that gave their financial support: Cesena Fiera, Alimos, Almaverde, Apofruit, Aweta, Cac, Cermac, Consorzio Funghi Treviso, Consorzio Kiwigold, Cpr System, Cso, Dole, Sole Soc. Cooperativa, Frigoriferi Industriali, Graziani, Idromeccanica Lucchini, Infia, Italia Ortofrutta, Linea Verde, Op Rosaria – Pannitteri, Opo Veneto, Ortogest – Azienda agricola Brunelli, Ortolano, Ortoromi, Pentaplast, Pro Stand, Rimini Fiera, San Lidiano, Sermac, Siropack, Sorma, Tramaco and Unitec.
