In the sixties Luigi Porcellato began his activity as a street vendor of fruit trees and other species of ornamental plants.
Vivai Porcellato sas was born in 1979.
After the first few years, characterized by an activity still in seasonal cycles, the company is committed to the search for new markets, both in Italy and abroad. Thus the first commercial contacts with some Middle Eastern countries were born.
In the second half of the nineties, the company trades with most of the European countries and exports to new third countries such as Croatia, Syria and Egypt.
In the following years the activities with foreign and Italian markets are consolidated.
The path that began over forty years ago continues today with the constant attention of partners and collaborators in offering customers a wide range of plants, guaranteeing quality and origin, paying the utmost attention to sales prices.
The strong commercial and organizational skills are the strong point of this company which has become an important reference center of the Venetian nursery.
In 2016 Vivai Porcellato becomes s.r.l.
