Giovanni Lepore senior has been starting this
His love for the sea, pushed him to buy a little wooden boat when he was 14 years, learning the work of the fishing industry and starting knowing a lot of fruits that the Adriatic Sea offers us.
Giovanni Lepore opened a small shop with a view on the sea of Savelletri in Apulia, but in the meanwhile his will to grow brings him to the transportation and the sales of wholesale fish from Apulia to other lands.
“Giovanni Lepore” company was born, known and appreciated in the fishing world in particular for swordfish sales.
Over the years the company carves out an important place in the fishing market of Apulia and Campania, becoming a reference point for fish sales until 1995, when, with the closure of the firm “Giovanni Lepore” ends a period.
Lepore Mare srl was born, a new and dynamic company, which, within a few years, transfers to a new location that is more suitable to the needs of a group that keeps on growing.
A new purification center was implemented with a mollusks delivery center and a new fresh and frozen product storage, to whom new processing and packaging departments are added step by step.
New important partnerships start with the University of Foggia Faculty of Agriculture and with the University of Bari Faculty of Veterinary. The company is also a location for PhDs programs for technologists and veterinary hygienist.
An internal analysis laboratory got opened and an industrial kitchen was implemented where all new products to be placed on market are tested.
Lepore Mare becomes a Limited Company
Research, study and innovation: these are the values that bring new challenges for the future. A future already started with the first fish burger with specific health benefits, the highlight of our production more and more dedicated to the well-being and the health of families.
