With roots going back to the 1930s, Prontoexport-Gioia may be one of the Aconcagua Valley’s oldest yet most progressive grape producers. These days, business sustainability for the grower is dependent on producing optimum grapes for export, as well as traceability and stewardship of the planet.
Pronto has completed the milestones of the produce traceability initiative (PTI). In addition, its Gioia brand grapes are Rainforest Alliance Certified. “We have strong relationships with our neighboring communities and we are measuring both carbon emissions and water use,” said Pablo Bozzo Pettinelli, general manager. Oppy also markets kiwifruit, citrus and stone fruit from Prontoexport-Gioia.
