The historical origins of the Scarpari Cooperative Society date back to the establishment of a citrus collection center in the 80s. At that time, the collection center was run by Mr. Scarpari Giuseppe (Rocco), father of the President of the Cooperative. Because of its entrepreneurial skills and the business acumen, supported by the other shareholders, he cornered the citrus market of Piana municipalities in a short time.
Over the years, overcoming several difficulties typical of the field, the collection center grew and was transformed into a cooperative, putting the Mr. Scarpari’s project into practice. A series of investments were made in order to expand and modernize the production processes. Indeed, a production chain for transformation, concentration, drum filling, marketing, supply and distribution of the finished products on the market was created, bringing the company to its current consistency.
