QRCode Campania. Security is a simple gesture.

The QR-Code project aims to ensure greater transparency for consumers. For us it is a valid tool for transmitting the SALUBRITY of our products.

The Campania Region through the Zooprofilatic Institute of the Mezzogiorno in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Veterinary Medicine of the Federico II University of Naples has made available to the companies a highly qualified staff to evaluate and plan the best use Of this important tool.
Let's imagine, for example, that a person decides to buy bell products: - he goes into a shop and finds a White Cilento DOP pack on the counter; - it will be enough to point your cellphone on the product package, on which stands out a Bare-code form of the Campania Region and will display a screen describing the traceability of the product in question, the examinations made with respect to that element and a series of information Which serve to provide security with respect to the purchase.
We believe this is a good example to overcome diffused diffusion on the agro-food industry, recovering confidence based on official data, calming consumers, and restoring dignity to the land.

The White Fig Tree of the Azienda Agricola The Fig Tree: a natural jewel of Barbara Guerra

It may well be the gastronomic symbol of the Cilento, to place the honor only the olive tree. Of both plants, the hills of Agropoli are nestled to the border with Basilicata. The landscape is completely full and if the fig trees do not reveal it immediately to the look it will be easy to find them, when the fruits are ripe in the late summer, we will find them following its sweet and intense smell. Stunning aroma reminds honey, acacia, fresh herbs.

There is no greater pleasure in staying in the warm hours of agostas under the shadow of a fig and eating its sweet, sweet and penile fruits. Throughout the Mediterranean there are many varieties of figs but in Cilento there is a variety considered to be valuable for drying and preserving.
Cilento's white fig with its high concentration of sugars, the soda and the compact pulp, the light and thin skin lends itself perfectly to being the protagonist of the winter and christmas tables, simply dry with or without peel, packaged in a way Traditional stuffed with walnut or apricot seeds or in contemporary variants that see it as the main ingredient of chocolate pralines.
We visit "Il Fico" the company of the Ruocco family in Agropoli, eight hundred plants watching the sea and enjoying its refreshing summer breezes. Since 2008 they directly transform the fruits produced with great care. Drying in the sun and a lot of attention in returning to the consumer the slightly sweet caramel, the right moisture that makes it pleasant to taste the compact and dark texture. The company follows the rigid production discipline of the DOP which ensures the production of figs in the Cilento territory and the use of only local ingredients. Various products all elegantly packaged in paper Fedrigoni obviously starts from the types of dried figs to the natural, chocolate coated and "packed" versions and packaged using broom branches.
In the range of products also some family recipes such as the Suprema (a roll of Cilento peppered pike dumplings, with hazelnuts, almonds, cinnamon and lemon zest) I would like to kiss the Cilento Kisses (pralines with almonds, almonds, Natural aromas covered with chocolate). The idea of ​​extending the period of consumption with products such as the Heart of Figs, a pastafrolla filled with jam or the fig 23 is a good idea for a distillate for which it takes twenty-three fruits to produce half a liter.
Particularly up-to-date the company as a whole with the short project to restructure a small, centuries-old masseria and make it a tasting room for visitors who are already copious in search of delicious figs.
Ancient fruit of poverty, a precious source of calories, was in the pockets of shepherds and peasants engaged in long days in the fields. They meet chocolate, and never separate them, coming to Cilento brought by allied troops on the coast of the Piana del Sele in the days following the legendary landing of September 8, 1943. It is impermissible the preparation that Giovanna Voria of the Corbella farm realizes by performing with Passion is a family recipe that sees the figs immersed in a chocolate sauce.
In recent years Cilento's white figs have also won pizzas and chefs. Franco Pepe uses the jam, in season fresh figs, for his pasta "mastunicola" with lard and Roman cones. Enzo Coccia combines them fresh with buffalo and mozzarella solo, Salvatore La Ragione, right-handed by Gennaro Esposito, used them just dried for a sautemian risotto at Capri's mom. Eboli's poppy has long been one of the most popular dishes, risotto with acorns and pistachios.
For Christmas and all winter we do not miss on our tables rich in taste and source of easily assimilable and natural sugars, maybe trying to propose them to children as snacks instead of industrial crap. My childhood was full of packaged strawberries flavored and even now they are the irreplaceable hunger breaks up to the beginning of spring.
The confectionery of the company The fig is well suited in combination with savory and full-bodied cheeses such as Cilento goat cheese or a more long-seasoned Parmesan cheese. The mustard will be a valid ally combined with boiled but vegetarians will find it brilliantly abundantly coated in hot toast with scumorza of smoked buffalo.
In Naples the products of the Agricola Il Fico can be found at Gran Gusto in via Marina.
