We are a company dedicated to the farming of Chandler walnut trees, and the production, packing, marketing and export of walnuts in shell.
Through our integrated production process, from the Southern hemisphere, we offer the world an excellent product, meeting the demands of the international market and taking special care at every stage of the process to ensure we meet the highest quality standards.
We offer a premium-quality product of international renown. Our high-quality shelled walnuts are characterized by their freshness and natural flavour, their high pulp yield and their optimal size and colour (extra light, light, and amber).
We are located in the high valleys of Catamarca, at 1,150 metres above sea level. Our walnut trees were located strategically to allow for an optimal development of the nuts, thus guaranteeing excellent results in size and colour.
Our own production spans over 200 hectares planted with CHANDLER walnut trees.
Our Chandler walnut trees, grown at certified nurseries, together with our sustainable production management guarantee high standards of productivity and quality.
Our harvest takes place in March and April. Our establishment’s strategic location allows us to have an early harvest, which enables us to reach the markets sooner.
Our fully-mechanised harvest, which uses state-of-the-art shakers, sweepers and pickers, allows us to cover a wider area more efficiently and to provide a higher-quality product.
Our packing plant boasts state-of-the-art equipment which is ideal for appropriately processing the product, from the washing, hulling, and drying steps to the thorough sorting of the nuts.
Our modern and strict production-control systems allow us to deliver walnuts with structurally whole and healthy shells, free from insect damage or foreign substances, and with the high quality the market demands.
We follow this approach in all our facilities, because we understand that caring for both the environment and our natural resources is crucial to the sustainable generation of value, and for improving our productivity and working conditions.
