Our apples boost health and vitality

Target 2030

Fruit that has been cultivated, ripened and processed with care provides young and old with important carbohydrates, minerals, essential vitamins and trace elements. Regular consumption of apples strengthens the immune system, reduces cholesterol levels, cuts the risk of diabetes and cancer, and helps prevent the onset of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The South Tyrolean apple sector therefore makes a substantial positive contribution to public health.
