Feno GmbH was founded back in 1999 by five ambitious nurserymen.
The name is a German acronym for Promoting and Developing New Varieties of Fruit.
The founding of Feno was a response to the need to cater for the greatly changed circumstances both in terms of the rules and regulations governing tree nurseries and in terms of the entirely new developments in the area of variety and trademark protection.
Feno is a member of CIVI Italia: the national consortium of nurserymen for quality and production of certified propagation material from fruit, citrus, strawberry, olive and garden plants.
