Tomato all-round taste

The tomato specialists

The good reputation of our tomato is mainly due to the following characteristics: flavour, flesh consistency, brightness of the fruit. Moreover, its long post-harvest life together with its organoleptic features represents another key to success and make it distinguishable from any other variety on the market. Finally, we should not disregard the fact that recent studies have pointed out the presence of lycopene, an antioxidant which may help in reducing the risk of cancer and some cardiovascular diseases.

Why prefer FARO?
Eight good reasons

  • Thirty years experience
  • Quality policy
  • Responsibility
  • Commercial reliability
  • Total traceability
  • Continuity of supplies
  • Production autonomy
  • Own production

What makes us different

The O.P. Faro is not just a farm. First of all, it is a community of people living in the same land and sharing the best seasons but also the most difficult ones.
The community also shares a same mission, that is taking advantage of the great resources of a unique land,
situated in the most southern corner of Sicily.

  • Mission
  • Quality
  • Marketing

What really makes our company different from the others is its mutual vocation: increasing turnover is a way to improve the quality of life of our associates’ families. In turn, this will help in improving the land, the local community and the district in which we operate. We ensure the maximum possible harvest and the minimum risk for operators, inhabitants, consumers and for the environment.

We take great care of food security, consumer’s health and environmental conservation, by avoiding the use of those substances that could be harmful for the cultivated land. We constantly analyze the critical points of the production process and we put a great deal of effort into risk prevention, traceability and qualitative analysis of our tomato.

Our main focus is on paying attention to consumer’s needs, in order to adapt the production also from the organoleptic and visual points of view. In order to pursue this goal we rely on skilled quality control personnel (Quality Assurance Representative, Shelf-life Manager, Sample Control Supervisor).

Products range

Today the O.P. Faro produces large amounts of I.G.P. Pachino tomatoes, among which the most appreciated varieties are: cherry tomato, small, round and sweet, vibrant red, characteristic for its aspect on a cluster, as fishbone; ribbed tomato (the so-called “costoluto”), a green salad tomato, regarding which we have the leadership across the area. The good reputation of our tomato is mainly due to the following characteristics: flavour, flesh consistency, brightness of the fruit. Moreover, its long post-harvest life together with its organoleptic features represents another key to success and make it distinguishable from any other variety on the market.

Large-scale retail channel

Large-scale retail channel has a deep impact on the fruit and vegetable market both in qualitative and quantitative terms, carrying out a slight selection among the numerous workers in the sector. Its bargaining power is due to the limited number of subjects determining the demand. Our challenge consists of being able to conform our management policies to the restrictions imposed by buyers with powerful contractual capabilities. For this purpose the O.P. Faro will undertake those actions which could enhance the logistic, productive and packaging processes, in order to guarantee for the associate producers both efficacy and effectiveness.

Sales and Marketing Department

Our sales office develops supply planning based on a mutual commitment. We have the means for adapting our production to variable demand, reorganizing manufacturing and packaging process in order to meet the target.
