FRUXERESA

Orange is not only a fruit, it is a passion that has been passed from generation to generation. Our secret: tradition mixed with new technologies application, market demands adaptation and strong compromise to our customers.

The Castelló Naya family

 

For more than 60 years the Castelló Naya family and oranges have been connected by taking advantage of opportunities offered by new technologies without forgetting the traditional methods of orange cultivation.   At present the third generation is taking the

company to its highest levels. Adapted to XXI century, we strive every day to satisfy our customers complying with our commitments.

Distribution centers

“La Safor” and “La Ribera” are two of the most important production areas in the Valencian Community, both are traditionally producing citrus for many years, and here is where we grow our produce as natural as possible, keeping all its flavours and properties.

Xeresa WAREHOUSE

In our facilities, with more than 14.000 m2, we process all kind of varieties of mandarin, clementine and satsuma.
Being located next to AP7 connects us with the rest of Europe.

Alzira WAREHOUSE

Our second logistic center is located in Alzira, here we process oranges and kaki (persimmon), a product wich is becoming quite popular on the current market.

Our team

All the technology in the world can’t do anything without the people that work to ensure that the fruit arrives in perfect condition to your table. From the orange groves to the packaging in the warehouse, our employes inspect all the fruit thoroughly and use all their knowledge and experience to achieve the best fruit.

Quality

Quality rules that we have, certify production and process too.

ISO 9001

Since 2000 we have been certified on ISO 9001 rule. This guarantees that a management quality process has been implemented and work rules are defined and applied.

GLOBALGAP

This rule, founded by an European supermarkets group, certify production and handling process. The aim is to offer our citrus fruit suppliers good agricultural standard practices, emphasizing questions like food security and traceability.

IFS

It’s an international rule, accepted around Europe, to control handling process, pesticide residue and food defense.

INTEGRATED PRODUCTION

It’s a local rule from Valencian government concerning environment protection and fighting methods of pest and diseases.

Traceability

We have an automatic traceability system covering complete process, from harvest to deliver products to our customers. All to provide fresh and safe products and, of course, on time.

Pest control

We control pest and diseases with less invasive methods that allows us to offer our customers good quality products.

Environment

In our company, where raw material depend directly on nature, respect for the environment is always of great importance for us. Nowadays, good agricultural practices are necessary for sustainable agriculture, wich is greatly appreciated.

In 2015 Fruxeresa implemented a plan to recover the heat from the air compressors.

This plan was carried out with the help of the IVACE (The valencian Institute of
Competitiveness Business) and within the energy saving and efficiency program in the Industry and co-financed with FEDER funds.

The aim of the plan is to recover some of the heat to reuse it in the drying tunnels with the result being a considerable amount of energy saved.

Social responsibility

 

Fruxeresa works continuously in socially responsible ways. This is visible in our collaboration with Sedex, a non‐profit organization dedicated to promoting improvements in business practices regarding ethics and responsibility of their supply chains around the world. We have also Grasp certificate, which evaluates social practices in the field, addressing specific issues concerning health, safety and welfare of workers.

 

We have also implemented safety and health plans at work, allowing us to control workplace accidents. We have an internal hazards prevention committee and an external prevention service. Both control the rules compliance in our business in this area.
