In 2011, five local producers came together to create “Exportadora Alfaberries, aiming to improve the marketing and sales of our fruit, representing 80% of the volume of exported blueberries at that time.
Since the beginning, dozens more nearby producers have joined in working with us, which in 2018 allowed us to build our own packing and cold storage plant using high-end technology. This permits us to control the quality, selection, cold chain and export of our varied products, with an advantageous market position and achieve satisfaction among our clients and collaborators.
In 2019, we developed a new line of business, offering processing services for chestnuts, ensuring greater continuity in our packing and cold storage plant.
During the 2019/2020 season, as a company, we reached 1,650 exported tons of berries for the fresh fruit market.
In 2020, the consolidation of our company allowed us to invest 2 million dollars in the latest generation of optic calibration machinery for our products, along with an expansion of our plant, which allows for an important increase in exported fruit, as well as the delivery of processing services to third parties, among others.
