Fontestad implements the best control systems certified by external bodies to guarantee the quality, freshness and safety of our products throughout the entire process.
Our workers are all involved in each of the production stages, from fruit harvesting in the field all the way through to distribution. We achieve this via a supplier control system that ensures ongoing communication with growers and timely advice from Fontestad technicians.
In addition, for citrus fruit processing and handling, we use the latest technology in quality systems, classifying our fruit by colour, size, weight and external quality.
“Only the best citrus fruits deserve to be called Fontestad”
We supply a wide variety of brands and formats, always with the same unsurpassed quality. We ensure perfect logistics to distribute our products to destination points quickly and efficiently.
The quality of our products is widely recognized in countries such as France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
The selection criteria for our oranges include internal quality parameters, which are analyzed along with other organoleptic qualities. Tastings are carried out in all varieties or batches before deciding which ones will be used. The internal quality parameters for each product are established as limiting criteria, and in addition, other aspects such as organoleptic qualities and external fruit quality are also valued, along with freshness and firmness.
Supplier and batch selection
Fontestad selects the best orchards in each area and in each variety based on experiences from former campaigns. The suppliers who are selected meet the highest quality standards in both internal and external fruit quality. To achieve this, we analyze the fruit in each selected field and carry out follow-ups right until harvest.
