Italy

Cooler than Spain

Our Italian farm is based at Foggia in Puglia, southern Italy.

In reality, for our crops, Spain is too hot in the autumn and spring to adjoin the UK season with highest quality spinach. Having persuaded one of our key UK employees to move with his family to Italy, Emmett Italia SRL came into being in 2016.

Where we farm in Italy is 250 miles north of where we are in Spain; this is like comparing the relative climates of London and Newcastle in the UK. Cooler autumns and springs mean that a larger proportion of our crops are grown in Italy at this time. All our product is sent as raw material to our factory in Lincolnshire for packing; this helps to keep our products fresher for longer. We only grow conventional spinach in Italy.
