Ermes values potential of traditional grape varieties
One of the commercial strategies of the Ermes company is to achieve maximum flexibility in the packaging field to enable it to handle the most varied orders, even last minute ones, providing a sort of global service. Ermes chairman Giacomo Suglia also suggests a further possibility that could come from renewed appreciation of traditional varieties. “In my opinion we need to reevaluate traditional grapes such as the Italia variety, which we can offer as fresh fruit throughout the season instead of out of a cold store and which is still a strong contender on both the Italian market and European markets such as Spain, Switzerland and France.”
Founded in 1985 at Noicattaro (Bari), Ermes specialises in growing and selling table grapes, offering all varieties, both seeded and seedless. The company has a very modern facility for processing and refrigerating the fruit, with a floor space of around 3000 m² on a surface area of 12,000 m², and complies with all the health and hygiene self-monitoring standards. The modern refrigeration system ensures absolute product quality and the skilled team available for round-the-clock operation enables it to respond to all the clients’ demands.
