Company

For over 50 years, we have been committed, every day, with passion and skills, to formulating innovative products that meet the expectations of an increasingly demanding agriculture sector and ever higher quality standards.
 
We take note of all the requests coming from the national and international agricultural sector and promptly develop new nutritional solutions.
 
That is how we have come to offer you a wide and diversified range of products, which are the result of our dynamic and proactive approach that is always attentive to market realities and our customers’ needs.
 
The objectives of our Solutions are Production, Quality and Sustainability.

The beginning

Kappa S.p.A., a company dedicated to the production of Complex Granular Fertilisers, was born in Cologna Veneta (Verona), at the end of the 1960s, to accommodate the growing demands for technical tools and fertilisers from the Italian agricultural sector.
 
After the consumption boom of the 1970s and 1980s and the onset of the crisis of the 1990s, Management understood that in order to compete in the new international landscape production the Company needed to relocate closer to the sea and embrace technological innovation.
 
In just six months, the first compaction plant in Italy became operational in Loreo, in the province of Rovigo. K-Adriatica was born.

The value of small things

Since then, through continuous growth, we have become an international group that combines its experience with new challenges, continuing to foster our reputation of excellence, without losing our roots.
 
We pursue these goals with humility, skills and passion.
