Peter Calamatta has been Malta’s foremost horticultural guru for over 50 years. He studied his trade extensively in different countries which include the UK, Italy, Austria, Israel and the United States of America.
For seventeen years he advised the Malta government on the creation of an efficient commercial horticultural industry as also it’s Afforestation programme. With the help of four U.N.D.P. and FAO consultants, he introduced protected cropping under greenhouses on a grand scale which also led to a healthy export industry. A success story for Malta and Gozo which is still thriving thanks to a more demanding local market as a result of the boom which the healthy tourism industry brought with it.
