Our Italian hazelnut orchards

Quality comes from the earth

Napolitaner Go to product

Hazelnut is one of our main raw materials and has always been a symbol and distinctive sign of goodness and freshness in our products.
The hazelnuts used in our production are sourced exclusively in Italy, to ensure constant high quality and sustainability, both ecologically and economically for the involved farmers. The hazelnuts we source are grown in Tuscany and 4 more Italian regions (Veneto, Umbria, Marche and Tuscany), partially in our own hazelnut orchards, partially in plantations run by farmers we have long term partnerships with. The “Italian hazelnut orchards project” not only aims to secure constant access to high quality raw materials, but also aims to promote hazelnut cultivation and revitalizing the agricultural agenda.

 

 

Our Italian hazelnut orchards

We look after nature to create true goodness.

Ecomethod

Since 2019 BMS Micro-Nutrients, leader in crop foliar feeding, has awarded Loacker the EcoMethod certificate . This confirms that our Tuscan agricultural companies, located respecitvely in Orbetello and Collelungo, managed to reduce CO2 emissions by 91.34% in 2019 thanks to the use of leaf fertilizers instead of conventional fertilizers.

Research and Development

On our two farms in Tuscany we grow two hazel tree varieties: Tonda di Giffoni and Tonda Romana. In our Tenuta Corte Migliorina in Orbetello we also cultivate other birch trees to study their adaptation and integration in the environment.

Supply Contracts

We currently source part of our hazelnuts from two farms in Tuscany owned by Loacker, for a total area of around 300 hectares. In addition, there are around 500 hectares already planted by 90 farms participating in our supply contract project in Veneto, Umbria, Tuscany and the Marche.
