In 2008, Soumia Lomri and Emile Grac fulfilled their wish of setting up their own fruit plantation. The husband and wife obtained land in Morocco that suited their requirements, in the form of a 100-hectare plot between the port city of Essaouira and Marrakesh. On one third of the area, they planted mandarin trees, while on the remaining smaller areas, they planted oranges and figs. Neither of them are newcomers to agriculture, as both Grac and Lomri also used to market aromatic spices in their original homeland of France.
It is now the time for freshly harvested pears from Argentina. As the European pear season slowly comes to an end, we look beyond the horizon to cater for the demand. These delicious pears come from the fruit specialist Ernesto Bartusch’s La Deliciosa farm. It is located in the middle of the country, in the province of Rio Negro. This high-yielding oasis in the Patagonian Steppe is world-famous for its delicious apples and pears.
The entry-level organic brand, greenorganics, is presenting itself from now on in a new, fresh way. What has stayed the same is the proven quality.
The first products with the remoulded design are also “the newbies” in the greenorganics range: the milk substitute trio from greenorganics. Packaging which has existed until now will be gradually adapted to the new design.
The new milk substitute drinks will be revealed to the public at our stand at Biofach 2018.
