Citrus Srl is an Italian company based in Cesena, which sells fruit and vegetables in the “L’Orto Italiano” supply chain. The project started in 2013 by the belief that the economic crisis has made clear that there can be no development without values.
In July 2016 was formed an agricultural cooperative that unites the producers who believed in the social project from the first day, and others who are joining the work.
The mission of Citrus has to perform an action of education and awareness towards a healthy diet, arguing that prevention starts from our tables and that we must support research to advance the science. For this Citrus supports scientific research of the Fondazione Umberto Veronesi: in 2015 presented the first research grant, and two in 2016, due to business growth.
