Caviro, representative of 12,000 wine growers, assures it: waste is reused, creating value and maintaining quality high.
A new successful economic system that interests even winemakers. The combination may seem a bit odd, but the circular economy could be a solution for the wine sector. It was discussed at Expo, during a round table organized at the Cibus-Federalimentare Pavilion by Caviro, agricultural cooperative that gathers 12,000 wine growers.
“Our model of circular economy – said the president of Caviro, Carlo Dalmonte – allows to recover most of the waste to produce value. This permits to soften some of the costs, getting on the market with a quality product and prices in line with consumer expectations. “The group has 535 employees in four different factories and in 2014 recorded a sales volume of 314 million euro.
“The investments we made in the last 6 years for a total value of 100 million euro – added Sergio Dagnino, general manager of the cooperative – enabled us to keep improving our performance in terms of quality and respect for the environment. By using brick carton and light glass, our group recycles 30 percent of the water and saves 50,000 tons of packaging”.
Even the Ministry of Environment, highlighted the undersecretary Barbara Degani, is engaged in increasing company commitment in the development of a circular economy. “We are working on two fronts, he said. On one hand following voluntary agreements with companies that demonstrate a new awareness on this issue; on the other hand, through tax relief policies that facilitates who already adopts a circular economy”.
