We follow best practices for cultivation, production and export
The export process at Prosagro Export
We select the seedlings
We work hand in hand with the best growers to ensure optimal genetics, production and plant life to take maximum advantage of our resources and those of our producers.
We carefully select the seedlings we and our partners use to guarantee that they have the best genetic profile for adapting to our tropical soil.
Soil and crop survey
Before planting the selected seedlings, we study soil conditions and prepare the soil to receive this valuable biological asset.
Our plants aren't fond of rain but they need water. This is why we build them semi-roofed greenhouses, so that the water does not fall directly on their leaves and fruits but can moisten their roots directly.
The plant develops fruit on the vine, where you can see the whole process of fruit development, from the bud through the flower to the development and ripening of the passionfruit.
After planting our passionfruit seedlings we wait 6 to 8 months and work carefully every day to prepare for the first harvest.
We harvest the fruit directly from the plant. When it turns a purple color, it tells us that it has reached a point of sweetness suitable for our demanding customers.
This is when the production process begins.
The fruit is pre-selected on the farm to prevent defects from reaching the packaging plant.
Once it arrives at the packaging plant, the fruit is carefully selected and packaged according to our customers' quality standards.
We refrigerate the fruit so that it can withstand its long journey, which can last more than 2 weeks until it reaches our customers' warehouses.
Finally, the fruit is ready for export and distribution in markets abroad.
We use best processes in the production chain to produce healthy and healthful fruit for consumption.
We act as custodians of the environment and protect the aquifers that surround us, living in a healthy balance with the land.
Our crops are certified for good agricultural practices by the Colombian Agricultural Institute:
- ICA: Phytosanitary certificate for export
- GAPS: Certificate of good practices for agrifood producers.
- GLOBALGAP: Certificate of risk assessment in social practices.
