On 5 November 2016 the Consortium became one of the founding members of the new Bio-district of the organic production and organic producing community of the Central-Eastern Venice area, in short “Bio Venezia”, together with 19 other founding members which include: farms and holiday farms, protection consortia, public and private bodies, trading companies, distributors and local associations.
The intention of the association is to group together producers, distributors, citizens, tour operators, associations and public administration offices to cooperate towards the management and sustainable development of resources, through environmental protection and value-enhancement of traditions and local peculiarities.
In the 1990s some of the companies of the Consortium started producing organically to the extent that, at that time, the total surface of organically cultivated vineyards exceeded 350 hectares.
At present, the area of the Bio-district has increased and includes entities spread over 24 municipalities in the territory between Venice and Treviso.
