Since 1962, year of creation of the company, we have always been committed into a full quality approach for our fruit purees. Year after year, the high level IFS certification shows the good implementation of a quality management system based on continuous improvement, in compliance with economic and societal data of the company. The purpose of this policy is to ensure the marketing of healthy and safe products, while developping the sustainable performance in the respect of diverse regulations (hygiene, labelling, traceability, …).
Our ambition is to satisfy our clients by offering them high quality products.
Our action is run by three major guidelines :

o Organoleptic process : to combine the expertise of the authentic taste of the fruit, and the right associated process allowing to restitute the preserved tastes and the regularity of the processed fruit.
o Nutritionnal process : absence of preservatives, additives, allergens, and use of natural cane sugar when it is necessary. Research and development of products with a low glucose level in balance with in consonance with the requirements of final users and consumers.
o One quality, for two solutions in chilled and frozen. To research and develop packagings and adapted formats for different uses, without waiving our quality standard.
o To conciliate theses specifications with the continuance of an optimal level of service.
To source by implying our partners
o To select longterm producers and suppliers for more quality and security.
o To identify, visit, and control supply lines of quality fruits.

Since 1997, La Fruitière du Val Evel never cease to innovate and improve its working tools, especially the fruit transformation and treatment processes. Recently, the choice of the cold treatment by High Pressure shows this constant quest for the best. This ultra-performing process is unique on the market, and is the best solution to preserve the qualities of a processed fruit. Innovation also concerns our selection work in our orchards. After the Tayberry, the launch of the 100% french Méco Raspberry is a new exemple of our differenciation. All these works contribute to the development of our core business and our range of natural fruit purees and coulis, which excels for its quality and the choice it offers.
