Octagona for the Lucanian agri-food sector: the Lucanica 2.0 project is underway

Octagona proposes an important initiative: “Lucanica 2.0”. A project to help businesses in the Tempa Rossa area: this is what Total, a well-known French company in the oil sector, came up with in collaboration with Octagona to promote Made in Basilicata agri-food.

In detail, the project aims to support companies operating in the area affected by the Tempa Rossa ad export the typical products of Basilicata. The initiative is also having great media coverage: Rai News he also dedicated an article to us.

The initiative is open to a maximum of 20 companies, which will be selected by Octagona experts. The most promising sectors have already been identified, and we present them below.

Cured meat

Let's first look at the export of Italian cured meats to Europe in the last 5 years. The overall value of exports amounts to 2.2 billion euros, with a increase of +31.57% between 2016 and 2020.

The top 5 partner countries are the Germany (605 million euro, with a growth of +37.02% between 2016 and 2020); United Kingdom (€279 million, +25.59%); France (€262.2 million, +32.33%); Swiss (€221 million, +19.39%) e Belgium (€131.4 million, +26.16%).

Cheeses

The prospects for companies operating in the dairy sector are also interesting. In fact, according to Eurostat data, exports from Italy to Europe were worth a total of 11.2 billion euros between 2016 and 2020, with a increase of +33.77% and an average annual value of 2.3 billion euros.

The signals from are also positive France, Germany, United Kingdom, Spain and Switzerland, with an increase in imports from Italy over five years between +25.27% (Spain) and 38.82% (Switzerland).

Finally, the third sector identified by Total and Octagona is that of wines, which has grown for the +11,38% between 2016 and 2020, with a total value of 18 billion euros.

Again, the main signals come from Germany, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland and Sweden. Germany was the main country, with imports from Italy worth 5.1 billion euros, but with lower growth than other countries (+9.88%): a sign that competition in the country is fiercer than ever . Sweden, on the other hand, recorded an increase of over +22%, with a total value of 865.8 million euros.

 

Furthermore, there is also space for other industries in the Lucanian agri-food sector: the Lucanica 2.0 project is also open to companies producing pasta, oils and other food products.
