PRODUCTIVE PROCESS

The care for our fruit, from pollination to shipping

Bees are the secret of cultivation: 35 hive boxes are placed in the orchard to stimulate pollination. While a plant of Granny Smith apple is placed every 8 meters on both the quality of apples. hrough this technique it favors the pollination of bees that suck the pollen of Grannysmith and moving on Fuji and the Gala, giving life to the natural process of pollination.

Regarding pears, every eight rows of Abate pearsare placed two rows of Williams pears which serve as pollinating and to be pollinated with the help of bees in a natural way.

A few days after pollination the magic happens and the flower begins to develop in fruit.

When the fruits acquire their mature color and the pulp becomes juicy and ready to be eaten, pples and pears are picked from the tree and put into plastic bins (large containers) with the aid of labor mainly female, that for the delicacy of the work guarantees better results.

First of all apples and pears are placed in a large refrigerator that allow the fruit to maintain all their organoleptic quality during the production processes.

Apples, previously placed in larger containers called bins, They are lowered into a large tub of water, where a jet of current water pushes them to the successive working steps.

In this first process happens he washing of apples. The water, pushed by the pumps, has the task to carry the apples without the dent.

In the next step the apples are brushed and then the fruits with the most evident defects are selected and removed from the tank (the discarded apples are sent to cider production companies, in this way you don't make product waste still usable).

Quality control is completely manual, as it was once. In this way you are sure that apples arrive in consumers' homes perfect to be eaten.

After checking quality apples are further brushed and washed and moved on a conveyor belt. One at a time, each apple passes under a screen that identifies color and size. When the type of apple has been identified, the conveyor belt directs them to the right compartment, where they are entered manually wooden boxes, cardboard or plastic according to the destination place of their assigned

Once filled, the boxes are supported on a conveyor belt that It leads them to a shelf on which takes place an additional Quality Manual Control.

Finally the apple and pear boxes are stacked on pallets and then send, so that customers can find them ready as we are used to seeing them: all ordered in boxes, waiting to be eaten.
