Our History

Production came from the end 1980s when an active partner began with the activity.  After that, we started to manipulate the product and in 2006, the headquarters in modern premises began to be built.  Over the years we have grown in production, while expanding our facilities: we made our first enlargement in 2007.  We expanded again in 2011 and in 2013 the last expansion was made in the storage area. From 2015 to 2018, due to the increase in production in the field, several constructions have been made for the storage of the product, as well as a redistribution of the existing facilities, expanding the area destined to the deposit of finished product and incorporating an automatic packaging area .

We currently have 12,000 m² distributed, mainly in 4 areas:

  • Storage Area with a capacity of 15,000 tons
  • Handling Area
  • Expedition Zone
  • Cold Zone. Storage up to 500 tons

Currently, we grow 15,000 tons of onions in two ways: sowing and planting, obtaining a high quality product with all the guarantees for our customer’s agribusiness, supported by GLOBAL-GAP, TESCO NURTURE, LEAF MARQUE, BRC and IFS.

Each campaign we cultivate different varieties of onions: Medium Grain, Grain and long cycle, in addition to purple onions.
