Company of the month

San Lorenzo

Serving la signora Maria in the kitchen

There is an unspoken rule to Italian market shopping: Seek out the stall with the longest queue and wait – locals know where to buy good products. The coziness of market shopping is all part of the experience. It means placing your trust in the quality of local produce and having a friendly chat with the lively marketer at the usual time and place. But is this concept outdated in this day and age? Massimo Vezza proves it is not. His company, San Lorenzo, specializes in distributing traditional Italian foods. To him, trust and quality matter, and they can indeed be conciliated with growing markets.

Nagykun 2000 Mezögazdasági Zrt.

With team spirit on the go for rice

Around the world, rice is one of the most important crops. Especially in Asian countries it is a staple and therefore the nutritional basis for a big part of the world population. As a matter of fact, the largest portion of the rice produced worldwide comes from Asia as well as from the USA being one of the main exporters. Nevertheless, in the EU rice production is also gaining momentum, and not just because ‘gluten-free’ is the buzzword of the day. Within the circle of the traditional rice producing countries in Europe like Italy, Spain and France, ‘newcomer’ Hungary supplies the EU markets with top quality rice – 50% of which comes from Nagykun 2000 Mezögazdasági Zrt. in Kisújszállás.

Ball Beverage Packaging Europe

Perfect packaging in a can

While environmental issues are at the forefront of present day concerns, discarded packaging – particularly that generated by food and drink products – still creates mountains of rubbish. Despite the best efforts of the industry, a large percentage of it is, at best, only partially recyclable, to a large extent due to the stringent standards set by the controlling authorities. Aluminium, in contrast, can be recycled indefinitely, and is also completely safe for products intended for human consumption. It is therefore the ideal packaging material for foodstuff, particularly liquids. Ball Beverage Packaging Europe specializes in aluminium and steel cans for the drinks industry.
