Way of packing - way of life

Vittoria Fruit has its very own packing facility where we can pack our grapes according to your needs. Carton boxes, wooden boxes, plastic boxes, 5kg, 7kg, 10kg, you name it - we can pack and deliver it. We have two packing lines for 60 working places total, each working place is equipped with its own weighing scale which means that we can deliver the exact weight that is needed for the customer needs. Additionally, our company has its own chambers where we cool and store our grapes. Following the harvest and packing, grapes are being cooled by the use of a specific cooling regime aided by scientific factors dependent on outside temperature, the variety of the grape and the way of packing. The cooling chamber has the capacity of 1.000 tons, providing the necessary conditions for successful storage of our grapes!

A ROAD TO SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability has become a highly relevant topic in all industries. Production circumstances and practices, and the environmental and social impact of business activity is taking an increasingly important role in the consumer-decision-making process.

Vittoria Fruit has defined three sustainability topics, which are serving as the framework for its sustainability initiatives: The implementation of strict food safety practices, the implementation of green energy and the application of biological control mechanisms.

FOOD SAFETY

The awareness of microbial and chemical food safety among customers and authorities is growing worldwide. Vittoria Fruit pays special attention to the implementation of systems that have a role in putting food safety at the very top of our objectives. That is why before we start harvesting any of our varieties of grapes, we carry out an analysis for the MRL and the number of residues that our grapes possess - and the harvest of grapes can begin only after we have a proof that our grapes are fulfilling the food safety criteria. Producers all around the world should take important steps in order to ensure that their products are safe to be consumed - and that is why we have put food safety as the highest priority for our products.

GREEN ENERGY

Vittoria Fruit also strives to obtain a substantial part of the electricity required for the production process in the packing facility and the cooling stores from renewable energy sources, especially solar plants. That is why in 2023, Vittoria Fruit built a central of solar panels put on the roof of the packing facility that can generate up 1 MWh per day. With this, we contribute to the environment and are helping mother nature by reducing the carbon footprint.

APPLICATION OF BIOLOGICAL CONTROL MECHANISMS

Vittoria Fruit aims to reduce chemical input to an absolute minimum - we want to prevent the pursued production activities from causing disruption to agro-ecosystems. To this end, integrated pest management (IPM) is implemented in the field of crop protection with a strong focus on mechanical pest control, application of biological control mechanisms, and the limited and responsible use of synthetic pesticides. This approach is supported by activities to enrich biodiversity - evidenced by the fact that we have not applied any insecticides on our grapes for 5 years already. Instead, we use pheromones in order to ensure that the natural order of insects is not interupted. Consequently, with these methodes we are working towards a safer and cleaner environment!
