Harvest

Picking is one of the most important time of the year. It materializes the completion of a lengthy work accomplished by our orchards’ managers and technicians; as well as the beginning of a news season for our sales team.

Traceability starts right after picking

Post-harvest
qualité control

Our harvesting techniques are adapted to :

  • The surrounding environment : “classic” orchards vs. organic orchards; Loire Valley vs. South West vs. South East; Weather characteristics.
  • Our methods used to drive apple-trees: “arched” branches vs. “fruit wall” technique
  • The harvested apple varieties’ features: standard vs. clubs

As a matter of fact, picking for “standard” apple varieties are done according to the yield and we use the options :

  • Self-propelled picking platform
  • Picking sledge with picking bag
However, when picking club varieties such as HoneyCrunch®, we use a “direct laying” technique to limit apple movements. To this end, use the following options :

  • Tractor with wagon-like bin carriers
  • Self-propelled picking platform
  • Tractor with picking trailer
  • Manually operated bin carriers

Once the picking in the orchards is over, controls are automatically done on site according to the different parcels and apple varieties that were picked. This allows us to kick-off our traceability work as well as quality assurance program.

All of INNATIS orchards are labelled “Vergers Ecoresponsables“. This certifies that our orchards are adhering and respecting the IPM (Integrated Pest Management) charter.

Storage

Storage plays a key role regarding our ability to offer our customers quality products that will be able to travel anywhere in the world without any issue.

It comes into play at different levels, either right after the harvest, or once all packed to lower the core temperature so that we can stick to different countries and customers’ requirements that we have to adhere to.

Our leaders, as well as the men and women in charge of our packing stations are well aware of the importance of fresh fruit conservation to be able to showcase our harvested fruits.

We are striving to use We are striving to use thanks to tight management and strict analysis of gaseous exchanges. We have a large available cold store surface allowing us to store lots of apples with different storing techniques according to necessary storage duration using :

  • Standard cold stores
  • Controlled atmosphere cold stores
  • SmartFresh cold stores

Rigorous controls are conducted at each steps of the process in our packing stations to guarantee the traceability of our fruits, which allows us to go back to the exact orchard parcel where the apple was harvested at any time.

All those measures allow us to offer our customers the best apples from our orchards in optimal conditions.

Whatever the transportation mode picked by the customer, we guarantee an optimal traceability which allows us to go back to the harvested parcel in less 24h if need be.

Container ship

For the past few years, Pominter has been committed to develop piggyback transport. Thanks to the use of rail-road we avoid emitting the equivalent of 2 tons of CO2 per container. During the 2013-2014 season we managed to ship 5% of our volume this way. During the 2014-2015 season we brought up this number to 30%.

Pominter invested in innovative tools to ensure containers’ tracking until the final delivery spot. Right after the container leaves the pack-house, we monitor its progression thanks to different triggered alerts that allow us to keep the customer up-to-date. Once loaded on the vessel, we track its progression and final ETA evolution live, allowing us to inform the customer of any change whenever needed.

Pominter can pride itself by relying on transportation partners that are leaders in their industry and being greatly reactive wherever the container is located in the world. Our logistics service providers are experts on specific geographic regions they serve, which means greater flexibility and local help when needed.
