The right combination in the production of seedlings is what guarantees their quality, strength, and productivity. It is the first step to a successful orchard.
Roots grow deeper in search of water and nutrients. A fertile soil supports strong, healthy trees.
On the soil that has been prepared and fertilized, we plant our seedlings, our new generations of orchards.
We take care of orchards ethically and responsibly. We carry out nutrition, pruning, irrigation, pest, and disease control, among other farming practices.
Orange by orange, each plot in its moment, our fruits are harvested.
Our oranges are loaded and transported from farms to factories. Many producers also help in supplying the raw material for our business.
Upon arrival at the factory, the fruits are unloaded, selected, washed, and sorted.
The juice is extracted, filtered, and pasteurized. The oil from the peel is also extracted. The pomace, peel and seeds are sent to the manufacture of specific ingredients. Every part of the orange is used!
Until they are transported, the juice and ingredients are carefully stored, according to the recommendations for each type of juice, always aiming at quality.
