This month we bring you a special focus on the partnership between Valente and Advice&Consulting, and we tell you about a project created together for the company Green Farmer.
Thanks to Advice&Consulting, Valente is present in Eastern Europe markets, where it exports its covering systems for intensive orchards. A&C is an Italian company based near Bologna and has 3 branches in Moldova, Russia and Uzbekistan.
The meeting with Advice&Consulting dates back to about two years ago, when, in October 2016, we were contacted for the first supply of piles in Kazakhstan for an apple orchard of about 70 hectares.
Thanks to A&C, we brought for the first time the Valente products in Kazakhstan, the most easterly and far point we had reached at the time.
A&C plays a key role for the best companies in the agricultural sector who want to create business in the countries of Central Asia. Through a staff of mother-tongue project managers who know the area well and agronomists who are experts in the fruit sector, A&C acts as a bridge between Italian companies producing technology and the end customer, and works successfully in Russia, Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine, Kazakhstan , Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan.
“Our mission is to improve the fruit sector in the countries of the former USSR, where we need know-how, quality nursery materials and tailor-made technology”, confirms the director of A&C, Alexandra Caminschi. “Thanks to our team of technicians and experts we are able to identify the needs of the customer and make a turnkey proposal, from the supply of the plants, based on the analysis of the land, the type of plant, up to the final product placed on the market.”

Apricots, cherries and apples, on the other hand, are grown in intensive and technologically advanced, high quality and high yielding orchards in the Yeraskh community of Ararat Marz and Ddeashen. This belt is considered one of the hottest regions of Armenia, which contributes to early harvesting.
The orchards are equipped with modern covering systems with anti-hail net and anti-rain system, so as to be protected from UV rays, wind, birds and insects. These systems are completed with an irrigation system, which provides special local care and nourishment, increasing quality and volume of yield.
