Our Processes are cared for at each and every drying stage from grading, washing to tenderizing.

At the grading stage, product impurities such and leave stems and other debris is discarded, prunes are then separated into 18 size-categories. At the washing stage, steam tenderizes and removes the stone from the fruit.

Prunes are pitted manually or by Ashlook machines. Later, pitted and unpitted prunes are selected, oiled and packed. Throughout the process, our quality control division constantly supervises humidity and stabilizers (potassium sorbate) in compliance with our customers' requirements.

From dthe Prunus Domestica, the D'Agen and President varieties are harvested between the months of February and March.
