Fontestad is a renowned family business in the citrus fruit handling and distribution sector. Today, the company follows in the wake of Mr Vicente Fontestad Planells, who founded it as a legal entity on October 1st, 1984.
Fontestad is a company that has never stopped growing since our inception. We grew from being a small fruit stand in a market in the 1950s to become a company with 50,000m2 of facilities and a strong presence in Mercamadrid and Perpignan.
Our annual production is over 160 million kilos of citrus fruit, 40% of which comes from our own controlled production areas on about 900 ha (Valencian Community, Andalusia and Murcia).
Our huge selection capacity at Fontestad always allows us to achieve our main objective: guaranteeing the best quality and service to our customers at all times.

Fontestad is a benchmark name in the citrus fruit sector, operating out of its hub to the north of the city of Valencia, where our facilities are located.
Internally, Fontestad strives to guarantee the safety and well-being of its workers, providing employees with everything possible to create a welcoming, family environment, despite our large size.
Throughout the year, Fontestad promotes collective passenger transport to reduce the use of individual vehicles. We therefore have free buses for workers with routes from and to neighbouring municipalities.
