It’s been an enjoyable journey
The secret of our success is in our name: “Ecofrutas” expresses our commitment to nature and also to the consumer. Fruit is always present in our lives, from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed, and our guiding philosophy is an absolute respect for well-being and the health of the environment.
By investing in ecology, we are focusing on the taste and health that we want to provide our consumers with. We supply happy fruit that has been nurtured by the sea breeze on sunny hillsides. Portugal’s West region benefits from a set of unique features that are perfect for agriculture, harvest after harvest.
But there are other “natural” factors that contribute to our success: we take on board the lessons that tradition passes on to us, and care for the pungent health of our employees – children of this land who grew up besides these fruits. The future if full of opportunities. We strive to continue to be the number one choice for the true appreciators of fruit and to continue to expand.
Opting for Ecofrutas is opting for life!
Together we are stronger when it comes to fostering the tastes of our land.
This was the idea that brought together a group of 16 farmers in Portugal’s West region in 1996, creating ECOFRUTAS - Estação Fruteira da Estremadura, Lda.
With the construction of modern facilities, Ecofrutas concentrated its efforts into breaking into several worldwide markets. Today Ecofrutas has a conservation plant with capacity for 10,000 tonnes, 30% of which has a dynamically controlled atmosphere, 50% a controlled atmosphere and 20% a normal atmosphere.
The production area covers 300 Ha, of which 70% is planted with the “Rocha” pear variety and 30% with apple trees, mostly of the Gala variety.
