Likewise, we dispose some cold stores for the reception and conservation of the fruit, which allows us to achieve an optimal management of the ripening process of the fruit/vegetables.
Nowadays, we regard quality as a global concept which covers the following areas:
- Food regulation
- Industrial regulation
- Environmental regulation
- Work safety regulation
- Quality assurance system
We have made progress in this direction by meeting the most advanced and strictest demands and certifications of the sector: We are members of the S.G.F., an internationally renowned association for voluntary control of the authenticity of the product, we have certificates in ISO 9001/2008 certificate for the assurance of the system, in BRC and in IFS for the assurance of hygiene and the food safety of the facilities, processes and products; We are certified in ISO 14001:2004, certificate for the assurance of the environmental management; KOSHER PARVE FOR PASSOVER certificate for consumers of the Jewish world, as well as, the ecological certificate for the ecological production.
Reusing the pulp for composting.
In line with INFRUSESA’s commitment to the environment and within its actions in this area, measures have been taken with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of its activities:
- Reduce and recover waste: fruit stones used as fuel, fruit remains used for animal feed, water is purified in our WWTP and excess sludge used to make fertilizers through a composting process.
- Improve the efficiency of water treatment. The last improvement implemented consisted of the incorporation of sepiolite during biological treatment, which has allowed us to increase the volume of water to be treated by 20%, without increasing the dimensions of the installation or its energy consumption.
- Reduction of significant environmental aspects (NOx Emissions, VOC Emissions, PM Emissions, GHG: tn Carbon Dioxide Equivalent, Water consumption, Pollutant load discharge)
