The company from over 40 years has decided to specialize in the production of Radicchio, focusing even more on the type of Late Radicchio, that covers about 80% of the today’s product areas as well as of the company’s business.
The Dotto company takes care of the entire production process, following the chain from cultivation to packaging and marketing field, without entrusting any steps to external companies.
Red Radicchio of Treviso IGP is a unique vegetable: for this reason the whole world envy, as well as the uniqueness and goodness, even the organoleptic and healthy characteristic
The uniqueness of the production chain
The Red Radicchio of Treviso I.G.P. is indisputably the Prince among all the different types of Radicchio
To obtain the precious product, now known to more, you need several working, still carried out by our company “by hand”.
The Late Radicchio can be considered a real “ugly duckling” for the characteristic mutation, that makes a product mainly green leafy, as occurs in the field, becoming the crisp white and red heart that we value in our tables. There are many stages that contribute to this extraordinary mutation, one in particular, makes it unique. In addition to the harvesting, the initial cleaning and selection, bleaching stage is fundamental.
The Radicchio, bedded out in large tunks, is covered by the root stock of the purest ground water which is abundant our territory.
These underground waters flow directly from the venetian mountains, emerging a few metres above the ground right in our area.
Thanks to a slow maturation in contact with this pure water, the Radicchio, regenerated after being picked from the cold countryside, will be ready for the final stages of processing.
Throughout all the production process, we decided to adopt as a company philosophy the only and exclusive handwork, valued in our Packaging by the words “GATHERED AND WORKED BY HAND”.
Grooming, washing and packaging
Grooming, washing and packaging are the final stages, accurate and manuals, which make the Radicchio ready for marketing.
In grooming are removed from Radicchio all dormant leaves which have degenerated during the process of bleaching, to make room for the new crisp red and white heart which is our Radicchio. At this stage our operators pay particular care and attention to ensure that the product remains intact in its shape and texture.
Finally the product is washed and packed according to the business requirements and target markets
