On 22 June 2023, at the office of the notary Leonardo Baldari, the Consortium for the protection of the Marrone/Castagna di Serino IGP was established, third after that of Montella and Roccadaspide CdT of the prestigious chestnut production chain in Campania.
The newborn consortium is the result of the aggregation and ideas of young producers, who work together for a single goal: to enhance a Campania product of excellence such as the Serino IGP chestnut, which has always been the most famous in the world, on a national scale. Twenty-two founding members include producers and farms in Serino, Solofra, Forino and Montoro.
This is the composition of the board of directors:
President Giulia Ingino
Vice President Elisabetta Buonomenna
"Finally - commented Giulia Ingino, president of the Consortium, as well as sales manager of the Agem Frutta company in Serino (Avellino) - we managed, after a long journey, to form the Consortium. All this was possible thanks to the commitment of the ADACI association (association of Irpinia farmers and chestnut growers) worked for the recognition of the PGI for Castagna and Marrone di Serino, which took place in 2018 and the promoting committee set up on April 26, 2022 which has been the ferryman for the birth of the Consortium in this last year "The Consortium is a virtuous example of aggregation, which brings together manufacturing and commercial companies that have never worked together, with the intention of making the most of the potential of this fruit. Together we want to protect the origin of the product and enhance its quality" .
