History

The San Marzano Consortium was founded in June 1999 by several economic operators who joined together the producers of agricultural products and the tomato processors together for this project. The Consortium aims are the protection and the increase in value of the San Marzano Tomato PDO of the Agro Sarnese-Nocerino Area in compliance with (EC) REG. 2081/92 and REG. 1263/96. The PDO geographical area is constituted  by forty-one Municipalities in the Provinces of Salerno, Naples and Avellino. The origin of the Consortium is due to economic and social motivations in order to re-launching a geographical area that has always been the synonym of a particular typology of tomato (the San Marzano), and in which, over the years, the production of this product has reduced  from about 4 million quintals to an almost unimportant amount.

 

 

Objectives

The San Marzano Consortium intends to pursue a comprehensive activity for the economic development and the valorisation of the territory above-mentioned, involving all the economic, institutional and social participants present in the area where this particular product is cultivated and processed. Therefore these objectives are particularly demanding.
