Ceradini B&C

BUSINESS PROFILE

CERADINI B&C established in 1980s in Verona and it’s active in the production, research and distribution of high quality plant propagation material. Although created to meet the sole demands of the Ceradini corporate farms, CERADINI B&C was met with high interest from local producers, to such an extent that in 2000s the nursery and the production of plants became a separate branch of the company.
The mission of the company is the production and distribution of high quality “virus tested” propagation material free from pathogens and diseases. This comes along with a constant monitoring onto the new trends of the market, concluding collaborations that can present new products and innovation.
The composition of the soils, and the experience gained over the years, means CERADINI B&C is a paragon of developing plants with an excellent root system, essential for the rapid development in any orchard with a keen eye in “virus tested” production procedures.
