English - Consorzio Marche Bio

CONSORZIO MARCHE BIOLOGICHE (CMB) is an agricultural cooperative founded by three of the leading cooperative farms in the organic cereals sector: Gino Girolomoni, Montebello, and La Terra e il Cielo.

CMB involves nearly 430 organic farms located in the Italian Marche region, covering a total of 35,000 hectares of cultivated land and processing 18,000 tons of agricultural products annually.

CMB’s mission is to support the ecological and digital transition of the regional agricultural system through specific actions in the areas of training, information, promotion, innovation, research, and corporate strategy consulting. For these reasons, CMB has established a PROJECT area to assist both its founding cooperatives and interested farms in participating in public calls at regional, national, and European levels. This includes providing the support of a team of professionals with strong expertise in project design, project management, and agronomic consultancy.
As a result of its activities, CMB has become a key stakeholder, participating in various institutional discussions at the local and national levels, alongside farms, policymakers, Italian universities, and research centers.

Additionally, CMB offers the opportunity to organize meetings, workshops, and incoming activities in the beautiful Marche countryside. They can host up to 40 people at Locanda Girolomoni (
