Top Agri Group, owned by the Soave family since its inception in 1985, dedicated itself to the cultivation and marketing of cereals and organic oils. Over the years the group has invested resources, passion and commitment to the creation of short-supply chains aimed at ensuring a constant procurement of safe and quality organic product.
Today the group can count on a basin of about 15,000 hectares of certified organic soils and a first-level logistic structure.
Since 2004, the group, driven by the idea of producing short-chain products, has devoted itself to the transformation of its products. The first step was the production of organic oils and meal cakes, first with minimal structures and then, in 2010, by investing all its resources in the realization of one of the largest organic European oil plants. The production structure has since grown continuously alongside the the traditional oil mill for sunflower, flaxseed and soy, other pressed lines for fine oils, plants for the production of oily flours, and production lines for textured soy and pelletizers.
These are our roots. Since 1996 our farm has been 100% organic.
Today we count on about 1.000 hectares of land, all in Italy in the Padana Plain, cultivated directly by us. Over time we have specialized production, moving gradually from cereal crops and traditional oils to products of greater health content, much closer to the sensibility of the modern consumer of organic products. These products include spelt, flax or special soy varieties particularly suitable for the production of our textured soy, the only one produced in Italy from 100% Italian soybean seeds that you find at the supermarket in our product line My Soia.
Our mission is to supervise and control all the production phases necessary to realize our organic products, from cultivation up to processing and commercialization operating in a logic of integrated chain to guarantee the highest quality of the products.
Our modern transformation center is located just outside Verona, immersed in an important rural area of the Po Valley. We built it in 2011 to have a state-of-the-art transformation plant that would allow us to face the new challenges of the organic world, which were becoming increasingly wide and specialized.
After building one of the largest organic oil plants in Europe, we continued to invest in new lines of transformation: a line dedicated to the production of cold-pressed special oils, packaging lines for oils, alimentary seeds, livestock products, a line of pelletizers for livestock products, a line to produce special gluten free flours and a brand new line for the production of textured soy. We have also created a laboratory for analysis at the highest level to guarantee the quality of products.
Since 2000 we preside over the south eastern part of Romania, thanks to the company located in Constanta, an important Romanian port on the Black Sea. From here our men, thanks to constant contact with local farmers and the agronomic competence gained over the years, guide farmers Step by step, through cultivation contracts in the proper, delicate conduct of Growers of organic products. Thanks to this constant work we can now count on a basin of about 40 farmers for over 20,000 hectares of organic production. The logistic center, a port terminal in Constanza, is the place where the products of our farmers are converged, where they are analyzed, selected and loaded on the ships that supply our production site.
This is a recent project, born in 2015, perfectly in line with our philosophy: to create integrated and controlled chains from the field to the finished product. Romania, with its huge and fertile agricultural expanses, is well suited to meet the growing demand for organic raw materials with a controlled chain. We decided to place a storage center equipped with a railway terminal near Timisoara surrounded by huge agricultural expanses, of which 2,200 hectares are our own properities under organic conduct and many others in control of chain. The intention is to progressively expand our land to reach at least 5,000 hectares by 2018.
Since 2013 we are also present in Morocco, because we believe in the opportunities offered by an emerging, stable and young market like this.
In recent years we have consolidated our local sales network and presence in the territory and finally in February 2017 we inaugurated our pressing plant dedicated to the production of precious Argan oil and other interesting oils that can be produced from abundant seeds and fruits in this country.
