Welcome to Episode 1343 in which Marc Millon interviews Stefano Silvi of Fermento Nero.
More about Fermento Nero:
Stefano Silvi and his friends got together to work on an interesting idea, they had tasted a Korean dish… and they found that it was delicious because of the garlic. This led them down the rabbit hole and into the world of fermented garlic. It turns out, there is amazing garlic in Italy with which to work with.
NeroFermento is an innovative startup, it started through an encounter between agriculture and technology, two souls that are as distinct as they are synergistic with each other in terms of know-how, values and experience:
AI Agricoltori in Erba, an agricultural company part of the Consortium of Garlic Producers of Voghiera which has been involved in the production of Garlic of Voghiera DOP for years, RES. An acronym of Reliable Environmental Solutions, and a cooperative company in Ravenna that operates in the fields of alternative energy and the enhancement of organic matrices through anaerobic digestion.
Earth and science, dexterity and technique, craftsmanship and technology.
NeroFermento finds precisely in the dualism at the basis of its identity, the drive necessary to innovate, experiment and progress, raising its quality standards day after day with the aim of offering the market a new, fresh and unprecedented point of view.
