THE SOUTH TYROLEAN KNOW-HOW

THE SOUTH TYROLEAN KNOW-HOW

The apple production in South Tyrol dates back to the period after the Second World War. Over the decades, it has been led by different historical, cultural, social, political, geographical and economical factors to become the main agricultural activity in the province.

The data on South Tyrolean agricolture are surprising:

  • 27,000 hectares of orchards
  • 19,000 hectares for apple cultivation
  • 1 million tons of apples produced every year
  • 50% of the Italian apple harvest
  • 15% of the European apple harvest
  • 2% global apple harvest
  • 8,000 family farms

 

Therefore, South Tyrol is the ideal location to welcome the specialized operators of the worlwide apple industry. Interpoma is one of the few events worldwide that addresses solely the issues of cultivation, storage and marketing of apples. This meeting point provides precious professional opportunities for the industry insiders.
