About Us

We have been operating for 75 years on the market thanks to a close and continuous cooperation with our local producers. This is enabling us to offer two types of products: a classical assortment that better reflects the so called ”Ingauna tradition“ with our most popular items, and an innovative assortment that has been carefully crafted following the new trends of national and international markets (Eco-Cultivation, Certifications, dedicated packaging etc.). Our Catalogues include a wide range of assortments of potted plants (aromatic, daisies, flowering plants), severed herbs, vegetables and spices.

We ship Europe wide

Thanks to our internal dedicated logistic department and an effective cooperation with several national and international transport companies, we are able to offer a comprehensive service to all our markets of interest.

The new operational Headquarters

Since 2012 we are operating from our new and modern logistic base of 30.000 square meters, compliant with the industry standards. The Flowery and Vegetables divisions have larger dedicated warehouses, allowing us to manage higher volumes of products following our structured and organised set of procedures. These ensure we will provide excellent service to every customer; from larger retailers to small shops owners. With the increasingly skilled and qualified support of our staff, The Ortofrutticola, provides professional assistance to all customers in every phase of the sale process.
