A farming company since 1980
Our farming company was founded in Piacenza more than fifty years ago, the brainchild of two brothers, Angelo and Emilio Bertuzzi, who are still active in the company today.
Riverfrut produces and distributes both fresh and semi-processed vegetables, including vegetable soups, creams and burgers.
For over 50 years we have chosen a type of agriculture that takes care of the planet and its inhabitants. In fact, all our crops are focussed on the well-being of the environment through sustainable cultivation, just as all our products are free from additives, oils and preservatives in order to be natural and to show the utmost respect for the land and the people who work it. Our products are processed using techniques that preserve the nutritional and organoleptic properties while retaining all the characteristics of the raw materials used, as if they had been freshly processed.
The way we operate shows that we value the land that is our home, always respecting traditions.
The supply chain
Our supply chain chooses the fields, the people and the ingredients, taking care of our project from the land to the table: that’s why we choose to innovate, always.
The greatest flexibility in every process and competitiveness in the market: two other fixed objectives, that make our company stand out both at home and abroad.
We farm and produce using modern sustainable farming techniques.
All our products, both fresh and Cottintavola, are free from oils, additives and preservatives, are totally vegetable and some of them come from organic farming, and have obtained a variety of certifications.
We strive every day to offer you taste according to nature.
Riverfrut pays particular attention to innovation and research and continues to place overall quality as its main objective and way of working.
In order to encourage innovation, we have divided our crops and products into two ranges.
Fresh produce: French beans, flat beans, red potatoes.
The Cottintavola range: pre-cooked range of soups, burgers, creams and vegetables.
Our products are the result of a virtuous production process that has enabled us to achieve customer satisfaction while also guaranteeing excellent results in terms of products.
The production technologies, ethical choices and human resources employed, as well as the logistics of the system, aim to guarantee care and great attention to quality.
Each of our products is constantly monitored and controlled throughout the production process to ensure traceability.
