Sustainability is in our nature

The Apple Paradise of tomorrow needs us today

We take stock

From production to processing, packaging and distribution: Assomela, the Association of Italian Apple Producers, yearly examines the environmental impacts of Val Venosta Apples throughout their whole life cycle (Life Cycle Assessment, LCA). The results of this analysis are part of the EPD Environmental Product Declaration, which is based on the DIN EN ISO 14025 standard and contains the defined environmental performance indicators about our apples. These key figures are determined by the calculation of the life cycle assessment according to the ISO 14040 standards. We thus get information about the CO2 emissions of the whole production and specifically align our processes in an environmentally friendly way.

We set innovative accents as pioneers

Thinking ahead, working together and breaking new ground. We would like to promote development and be a model for an environmentally responsible fruit production. Our flagship projects allow us to set innovative milestones together with our producers and our network: in bee protection, in the promotion of biodiversity and in herbicide-free production.

Orchard habitat questionnaire

VIP has set another milestone by professionally surveying the measures to promote biodiversity in the Val Venosta production area. 

“Schneewinkel“ pilot project

This project aims at developing, assessing and continuously optimizing successful and practicable measures for the promotion of biodiversity in fruit production. 

Herbicide-free apple production

Here in Val Venosta the soil conditions are fundamental for the production of quality apples. This is why we promote the production of apples without the use of herbicides.
