The history of RIVOIRA GIOVANNI & FIGLI dates to after the Second World War and continues to this day in new, state-of-the-art facilities where they use a vertical process: calibrating in the basement, packing on the ground floor, and storage on the first floor . 

The new apple warehouse now handles more than 70,000 tonnes of product. Since 2006, RIVOIRA GROUP has held exclusive rights to grow and market Ambrosia apples in Europe, Russia, India, North Africa and the Middle East, and overseas exports are the company’s main business.

KIWI UNO is a member of the Rivoira family group of companies. It was established in 1985 and is now a leading company in kiwi exports and marketing peaches, nectarines and plums. Kiwi Uno is a partner of the Dorì Europe Consortium: an Italian initiative for a European project with yellow kiwis.

RK GROWERS is made up of important fruit and vegetable producers of Italian and foreign origin. It finds, selects and produces new varieties such as the red kiwi, new varieties of berries, and pluots. RK GROWERS supplies products to the major markets and supermarkets in Italy, Europe, and worldwide.
