Consorzio Valentina

Valentina and Legambiente apples are produced in Gruppo Mezzacorona's orchards. They are the first Italian apple brands to be given certification in accordance with regulation UNI 11233, reguarding "Sistemi di produzione integrate nelle filiere agroalimentari" (Integrated food production systems), which minimizes human intervention in the cultivation of plants and fruits.
Mezzacorona's fruit warehouse possesses the Global Gap quality certification. Obtained in 2007 as Eurep-Gap through AQA (Agenzia per la Qualita` in Agricoltura di S. Michele all'Adige), the AQA dictates strict production method standards that are internationally recognized. These regulations cover worker safety, mechanical efficiency and integrated production line integrity.
The discipline of VALENTINA apple production was certified by DNV (Det Norske Veritas), one of the most important international certification bodies. The DNV defines precise regulations for each phase of the production chain, giving particular attention to aspects that impact consumer health.
