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.
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.
Our environmental policy is based on two aspects:
- Regulation compliance: we are among the first companies in the sector to obtain the new environmental licence (adaptation to Law 3/1998), which controls and guarantees all the company’s activity in this field.
- Reduction and valuation of waste: the fruit stones are used as fuel, the leftovers of the fruit are used as animal fodder, the water is purified in our wastewater treatment plant and the surplus mud is used to make fertilizer by means of a composting process.
