Leaving Moissac, known for its beautiful Romanesque abbey, you head towards Bordeaux, in a region that is very green due to the large expanses of orchards.
This is where the plant is located, run by a family business.
Father and son look after the plant, the mother manages the administration and the daughter runs the delightful shop where local people come to buy excellent zero-kilometre products.
All around, there are the company’s own fruit plantations.
The processing and storage plant covers a total area of 8,200 m² and the 12 cold rooms store up to 3,000 tonnes of product.
The storage plant uses a cooling capacity of only 700 kW.
In the storage cells: special industrial air coolers.
The industrial air coolers are machines built exclusively for this customer. They guarantee a high quality of preservation with very low weight loss.
Reduction in weight loss of apples: only 3% in 9 months.
