history of the Parlapiano Company

The agricultural company Demetrio Parlapiano has a long history. In fact, already in 1946 the passion for agriculture led to the birth of a thriving family business.

The techniques and tools that were gradually refined lay the foundation for the birth of the first Kiwi plant on a surface of 3 hectares. We are in the 1980s, the year in which Italy had just discovered this fruit.

After about a decade, the company expanded, increased its cultivation and maintained its product  through cold storage and packaging. In the years 2000 it converters his production to the biodynamic method and dedicates exclusively to this culture.

In the years 2009 a new plant equipped with anti-hail cover meant that the company grew and improved more and more.

Today it is specialized in the production and distribution of the Hayward variety of kiwi from biodynamic agriculture on an area of about 20 hectares in the Agro Pontino in Cisterna di Latina.

Over time, the refinement of agronomic techniques and the ever deeper knowledge of this new variety of kiwis, have enabled the company to better meet the needs of plants in the most natural way (sovesci*, letamazioni, prepared 500/501) increasing Humus and life in the land.

Once the kiwi is harvested, it is stored in controlled atmosphere cells made inside a new special structure. Subsequently the product is packaged and marketed in the required formats.

Every year, Demetrio Parlapiano produces 400-500 tons of biodynamic and organic Kiwis with a brown skin and an emerald-colored pulp.

All production is certified with the IGP Kiwi Latina, recognized by the European community since 2004.

The biodynamic production is controlled by Demeter which distinguishes the high quality of the biodynamic agricultural method. Organic production is certified by the control of MIPAAF / Bio Codex.


the Green Manure

*Sovesci (green manure): is a cultural technique that is implemented to improve the properties and organic substances of the soil. Several species of grasses are sown (grasses, brassicas and legumes), once growth is chopped and incorporated into the soil
