Our objectiveis to grow while maintaining our traditional values and principles that include:
Quality of our products, social role of the company, sustainable development
approach (resource management, ...).
Our quality approach is based on the continuity and maintance of production starting in theorchards and ending in consumption.
Quality in production is ensured by:
The quality during storage is ensured by:
Quality in packaging and shipping is ensured by:
This quality approach is overseen by an independent Audit and Certification Body, Certi Alp, for Savoie fruit, and ensures perfect traceability of the parcel to the parcel marketed.
Our goal is to enable everyone to flourish in the company. This requires the best integration of employees. With this in mind, we regularly hire apprentices. We have also set up employee participation in the share capital. We have also developed a motivating remuneration system based on the sharing of results.
We have produced in accordance with sustainable agriculture since our beginnings (Label IGP Savoie). The reasoned arboriculture favors practices respectful of nature, for healthy fruits and a preserved environment.
For example by the fight against pests that aims to break the chemical communication between males and females by flooding the atmosphere with synthetic pheromones mimicking pheromones. Thus, males and females can not decipher, which prevents any reproduction, and therefore any development of the pest population. Females then lay sterile eggs.
This requires that the pheromone diffusers have been installed before the mating period.
Regarding our purchases, we prefer local productions even if they decrease in Savoy. Local producers retire and often stop production and sell their land.
We also have an exclusively organic farm.
This production is much more restrictive and currently represents 20% of our own production. On these orchards, we utilize special sheep for weeding.
We heat our premises with pellets. We sort and recycle as much as possible: wood, plastic, organic material, etc.
Production of fruit juice
Apple pomace (dry residue of fruit juice production) is used for power plants (biomass).
We welcome any knowledgable suggestions.
