Our porcessing plant is in Olivar, on the outskirts of the town of Rancagua. We have a refrigerating capacity of 13.500 bins (the equivalent of 250.000 boxes) of which 8.500 are kept in conventional refrigerated chambers and 4.400 are kept in controlled atmosphere chambers.
The fruit is packed in two different packing houses. Our new electronic pome packing selects and grades the fruit according to weight and colour. The grape packing house operates with the tradicional system of manual labour in the selection and packaging of the fruit.
Our facilities comply with all the regulations for fire prevention and control plus policies in case of emergency. The accesses to the premises are also safeguarded.
