Founded in 1960, the cooperative Kurmark-Unifrut became a member of the VOG in the same year. It has around 400 members who supplied 35.000.000 kg of fruit in 2021.
The Kurmark Fruit Growers’ Cooperative came into being in 1960. At that time the 16 founder members harvested 270 carts of fruit. In the mid-70s they were joined by the S. Andrea Cooperative from Salorno which led to an increase both in members and yields. 2001 saw another merger, with Unifrut Fruit Growers’ Cooperative, whose foundation date of 1946 made it the oldest in the Bassa Atesina. This fusion also resulted in a new name: Kurmark-Unifrut.
