Gest Cotton Farm

The purchase of GEST's Security Tokens (STO), will support the company's industrial expansion plan, which plans to increase the cultivated area in Italy to at least 500 hectares and equip itself with plants to transform directly on site, the cotton harvested from the plant, into processable fiber, so as to reduce costs and increase margins on the finished product..

GEST has also decided to take an innovative path in terms of raising capital. The company has decided to tokenize its project to complete the supply chain, thus allowing potential investors of all kinds to acquire a stake in a fast-growing project, which with the increase in cultivated area and the optimization of production processes, can generate in the MID TERM a business worth 50 billion euros, with an average margin of 50 percent


GEST, a pioneer company in the Made in Italy production of organic cotton supply chain, demonstrates how the cultivation of this fiber is possible in our country, from planting to the production and packaging of finished garments.

Trends among consumers and fashion houses, who are increasingly sensitive to the environmental and social sustainability of their products, mean that demand for organic cotton is on the rise. Some market research estimates demand growth of 40 percent annually (Fortune Bussiness Insight).

GEST, taking advantage of the ideal climate in some Italian regions and using innovative, low-impact cultivation methods, produces GOTS-certified organic cotton of the highest quality.

Currently, the majority of cotton used in the world comes from non-EU countries such as India and China. In this context, Italy is not even among the top three European countries in terms of cotton-growing area.

Until the arrival of GEST, there had not been a cotton supply chain in Italy since the postwar period-a paradoxical situation for a country with a thousand-year history in the field of textile production and an internationally recognized vocation for fashion and quality products
