Processes

We process between 25.000 and 30.000 tons of fruit a year in two production lines, with a capacity of thirty tons per hour. We use both, hot and cold extraction. We have 20 thousand tons of storage capacity in our cellars composed of aseptic tanks in chill conditions, where the fruits are kept by exclusively physical means, without additives, colourings or preservatives that permit to maintain their organoleptic qualities. We also have a filling machine with two aseptic heads, which packs ten tons an hour, and fills 220 and 1000 kg drums.

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.

Quality

Nowadays, we regard quality as a global concept which covers the following areas:

  • Product
  • Process
  • Food regulation
  • Industrial regulation
  • Environmental regulation
  • Work safety regulation
  • Training
  • 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.

Environment

Reusing the pulp for composting.

Water-treatment plant.

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)
