3A – PTA has been operating for over 20 years to ensure the improvement and maintenance of the quality of agricultural and agri-food products. It is characterized by its high specialization and by the possibility of providing a wide range of services, directly – through 3A – or through the other operating companies.

quality certification, food safety and consumer protection
advanced training and innovative professional profiles
