Our new state-of-the-art technology and eco-friendly production siteIn 2010, to extend and establish themselves durably in their environment, Les vergers Boiron grouped together their headquarters and production plant at a new site in Valence, France. This was a key step in the company's development, representing a property investment of €13 million and giving the possibility of doubling production capacity.
On this 6-hectare site, at the heart of one of the largest orchards in France and right next to road and rail infrastructure, the quality standards of Les vergers Boiron are higher than ever. On reception of fruit and vegetables, there are very strict controls to check quality, texture, colour and flavour.
The fruit and vegetables are refined, sieved and subjected to specific heat treatment, before being immediately deep frozen to maintain their typical flavour. Packaging into trays, buckets or bottles guarantees optimal food safety.
The whole process is subjected to ultra-precise traceability and strict controls to ensure Les vergers Boiron product users perfect quality and safety.
The new Les vergers Boiron site has a genuine R&D laboratory with pilot facilities making up unrivalled innovation capacity. For the different harvests, the fruit and vegetables are studied, tested and tasted with the aim of providing solutions to professionals that uphold the brand’s quality requirements.
One of the first HEQ sites
Les vergers Boiron were already ISO 9001 certified for quality management and ISO 14001 for their environmental management. With this state-of-the-art technology site, they are the first in the sector to have adopted the HEQ (High Environmental Quality) approach for their installations which are strictly regulated.
