Resulting from the gathering of several apple growers from the South of France, Pominter became a major private player amongst French apple exporters. The company, based in Montauban, Tarn et Garonne region, works hand-in-hand with historical local growers to value their harvests and ship their quality apples throughout the world.

Pominter expanded its footprint on international markets by relying on historical customers in Europe, Middle East, Africa and South East Asia. In addition, Pominter always was amongst the pioneers on newly opened international markets thanks to its flexible structure and unique apple varieties allowing us to diversify our offer.
