Discover what actions we take every day to guarantee quality baby leaf salads. Read our news.
We are convinced that the quality of our baby leaf salads is not a detail to be added at the end of the production process, but it is the lowest common denominator in every processing phase, from the preparation of the soil to the dispatch of the baby leaf salads.
Quality is one of our values that also comprises prevention, intended as the set of activities that aim to ensure the quality of the final product in every production phase, especially when it comes to the organic BIO salads. This results in a series of daily interventions to prevent contamination of the baby leaf salads and to guarantee their quality. Here is a summary of such activities.
We adopt analysis procedures to select the best seeds to grow healthy and robust salads, which can resist parasitic attacks and enjoy a longer shelf-life.
During the baby leaf salad growing period we make sure that there are no parasites, weeds or foreign organisms in the greenhouse. The controls are carried out every day with manual weeding and visual inspection.
Products and machinery
We carefully choose the products used in the greenhouse, so that they respect the earth and its equilibrium. We consistently sanitise the machinery to prevent contamination.
Batches of baby leaf salads are checked using visual inspection, optical sorters and metal detectors to guarantee only the best baby leaf salads picked for our customers.
Health & Hygiene standards
Employees working in the greenhouse and in the plant facilities fully comply with the health & hygiene standards applicable to the food industry and the supply specifications.
The activities conducted by control bodies
We regularly undergo control activities, including voluntary inspections, conducted by independent control bodies which certify compliance with international standards. Thanks to these control activities we have obtained 12 different certifications that attest to the quality of the baby leaf salads and our production process.
Put the quality of the baby leaf salads first and foremost.
My goal is to optimise our agricultural production.
Every day I work to improve the business management system and engage the supplier members in the philosophy of continuous improvement.
