10 Oct WE VISIT SUDTIROL
Last September, part of Fernández’s team (from the delegations of Barcelona and Seville), together with one of our clients, made a visit to the VOG consortium.
VOG is the consortium of fruit and vegetable cooperatives of SudTirol that mainly markets apples under the Marlene® and Kanzi® brands.
This visit allowed us to know first hand the whole operation of the apple crop, especially at the time of harvest. Apple plantations were visited in full harvest time and also warehouses of the COFRUM cooperative, where apples are packaged for later logistics distribution throughout Europe.
We were able to observe how the production and manufacturing facilities are equipped with modern automated quality control systems and with advanced systems that guarantee that apples are perfectly classified by size and quality, with the aim of better allocating each type of apple to their market.
It is a real pleasure for us to make this type of guided visits to get to know our suppliers and their production processes better.
