President Paolo Voltini commented, "We have completed an extraordinarily important acquisition for the economic impact on the territory both at the agricultural level, getting to involve about 800 conferring farms, and for the employment aspect considering that in the group's plants they will work over 2,000 permanent and seasonal employees; we are proud to manage one of the most relevant supply chains for Made in Italy".

 Costantino Vaia, CEO of the company, adds: "This operation, in addition to significantly accelerating the company's growth, further strengthens our leadership in the tomato industry thanks to an aggregation process aimed at creating value for the entire sector. Our supply chain - continues Vaia - has always represented a virtuous model strongly rooted in the territory, capable of exporting 70% of production to international markets in over 60 countries around the world."

Founded in 1985 in the province of Parma and with a turnover of 100 million Euros, Emiliana Conserve has two tomato processing and packaging plants in Busseto (PR) and in San Polo di Podenzano (PC).
