For the sake of quality

The trail of a first-class apple

A choice of variety suitable for the location, integral pest control, regular field and tree inspections and apple analyses and the recording of all the tending strategies in digital orchard registers: these are the requirements of the working group for integrated fruit cultivation in South Tyrol (AGRIOS).

Sorting

Every apple is photographed 60 times in a photo cabinet – and all within a few seconds. A computer program determines the apples of the same size, colour and quality and allocates them to the same water belt.
 
 
 
 

Storage

Apples of the same variety are stored in a controlled atmosphere in cells. Depending on the variety, they are stored in an atmosphere low in oxygen at temperatures between 0.5 and 3° C and in air humidity of between 90 and 95%.
 
 
 
 

Packaging & shipment

The most popular packaging is available in cardboard layers. Depending on customer requirements, there are various types of packaging, from cardboards to bags and pouches. Every order is checked once more before shipment.
 
 
 
 

Sales & traceability

Constant controls in each phase of production and absolute traceability are our guarantee of quality. The data on the label on the retail shelf gives the history of every apple through the region of origin to the processing plant.
