Founded in 1975, the cooperative Fruchthof Überetsch has been a member of the VOG since 1998. It has around 500 members who supplied 41.000.000 kg of fruit in 2021.
In 1975, 26 original members founded the Fruchthof J. Kössler Cooperative. Initially they had to rent their warehousing space. However, their growing success and ever-increasing delivery quantities soon made it clear that a new building was urgently needed. Construction began in Frangarto/Appiano. 1984 saw the cooperative move to this site and rename itself to become the Fruchthof Überetsch. Even by then the annual delivery quantity was over 1.200 carts. The cooperative continued to grow throughout the following years; in 1998 it merged with the OPAN cooperative in Andriano, in 2004 with GOG – Firmiano Fruit Growers’ Cooperative and in 2012 with SACRA cooperative in San Michele/Appiano.
