OUR QUALITY PROMISE STARTS AT THE FIELD
12 months of the year our salaried agricultural engineers visit contract farmers on a routine basis. In every visit they evaluate the plant and crop health, as well as the health of the cultivation in the surrounding fields.
If there is a threat or the tell-tale signs of trouble, they advise the farmer the actions to take. And they visit again to oversee the application of whatever action subscribed.
By enforcing strict control over our contract farmers, we receive the highest quality crop and diminished ecological foot-print while improving the knowledge of our farmers.
We are a family company and our roots are firmly planted in farming. Our GLOBALG.A.P.
and ITU accredited
greenhouses are located just
5 km from our FRUVE Natural Foods plant. At our greenhouse, we grow with complete computer automation.
We use gray water collection
systems to mix our fertilizer run off water back into our irrigation water. This system
protects surrounding farmlands, nearby rivers and aquifers. As an added advantage, we benefit from reduced production costs.
We also use IPM techniques (integrated pest management)
during cultivation. Just one aspect is the predatory insects
tenuis) which roam freely inside the greenhouse and feed on pests. These pests would otherwise have to be eliminated using chemical
pesticides. As a result, our greenhouse team does not get in contact with chemicals, and our tomatoes are healthier
for our customers.
MUBAY greenhouse produce are sold in local and international markets in fresh produce isle. When
requested, we will be happy to oven dry these tomatoes at our plant.
