Hortus Sementi srl

hortus sementiIn 1992, HORTUS srl, the Group’s Commercial arm, was established for the distribution of seeds under its own brand, with offices in the building adjacent to SIPAS, in order to optimise the production process. HORTUS immediately started to develop its own brand, OrtoVivo, and its own sales network.



Sipas Packaging srl

Augusto agreed to the project, and SIPAS srl was thus established in Muggia (Trieste).
A few years later, the whole company was taken over and, in 1992, the decision was made to transfer it to Greece, with packaging on behalf of other companies and trade with Greece as its core business.
