Here at Fruttagel, quality means bringing together the work of everyone involved in the various phases of the agro-industrial chain – production, processing, distribution, preparation and consumption – and implementing operating procedures that guarantee the wholesomeness of the foods and systems to monitor correct processing.
Our quality assurance begins with the selection of growing areas, followed by the sourcing of the best seed varieties. To monitor and guarantee quality, we carry out over 450,000 internal checks and 3,400 external checks on our products every year. For each product, and for each customer, we implement different procedures, specifically:
- fruit (peach, apricot, apple and pear): monitored from arrival to final processing;
- tomato: for organic cultivation, 100% of the product is sampled prior to harvesting; for crops from integrated production, the sampling percentage varies according to the customer’s requirements.
- frozen vegetables: sampled at different vegetative phases or stages of processing.
- legumes and cereals for the production of plant-based drinks: we have complete control of the entire production process, from 100% of the raw materials to the concentrated extract obtained, from recipe to sterilised and packaged end product.
