Il Frutteto - The Italian Orchard in India

In 2011, the IICCI launched the project Indo – Italian Agri-Food Technology Center - IIAFTC, , supported by Regione Emilia Romagna and in collaboration with Federunacoma, the Italian Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers Association.

Its aim is to promote Italian technologies, machinery, products and services in the entire agro-industry value-chain (farm mechanisation, post-harvesting and cold-chain technologies, food processing, and food packaging) in India by organizing demonstrations, technical workshops, business leads generation, organization of B2B and B2C meetings, implementation of digital and print campaigns.

In 2017, IICCI launched the pilot project "Il Frutteto - The Italian Orchard in India", with a specific focus on fruit and vegetables and the horticultural segment. Its aim is to

  1. Set-up a network of orchards in the different Indian States utilizing Italian technologies, products and services such as:
