Winning at the NYIOOC is an important opportunity that means a lot for my growth and especially for that of my company. I hope that this goal will bring us ever closer to our goal: to make the quality of our product known all over the world.Emanuela Dargenio, marketing manager
Situated in the southern region of Puglia, the company earned a Gold Award for its Figlia brand, a medium Coratina.
"Winning at the NYIOOC is an important opportunity that means a lot for my growth and especially for that of my company," said Emanuela Dargenio, the company's marketing manager.
"I hope that this goal will bring us ever closer to our goal: to make the quality of our product known all over the world," she added.
Dargenio said the previous harvest came with plenty of challenges, including recovering from the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic.
"I think that the recovery after a period like that of the pandemic is one of the challenges that many producers like us have had to face, perhaps the most important," she said.
"The desire to succeed despite everything is the guide that has accompanied Agricola Dargenio up to now, having won at the NYIOOC is proof of this," Dargenio added.
