History

Agrofruta was founded on January 16, 1986 as a company dedicated to the production of fresh fruit. Currently, it is among the most important producers in Chile, and is also a relevant player in the fruit export sector with more than 30 years of experience.

Agrofruta has eleven farms and two processing plants, located in the main fruit growing areas of Chile, with a total of approximately 1,800 planted hectares. Our production includes a wide range of fruit species such as table grapes, apples, pears, kiwis, cherries, blueberries and walnuts. Depending on the species and the location of the fields, the harvest begins in the month of November, as is the case of cherries and table grapes, continuing in the months of February-April for the pomaceas and kiwis located in the seventh region.

The main fruit processing and cold plants that Agrofruta owns are:

  • Fundo Alianza: located in Tierra Amarilla, Copiapó, in the northern zone of Chile, this plant has excellent infrastructure for processing and cooling table grapes. In addition, each farm planted with table grapes has appropriate facilities for processing in its own packings.
  • Agrofruta Servicios: located in the Buin commune, in central Chile, receives a large part of the other species produced. It is equipped with cold rooms, state-of-the-art equipment to process cherries and packing machines to process other species such as stone, kiwis and some pome fruits.

Durante la temporada 2007-2008, Agrofruta dio un gran giro y comenzó a exportar bajo su propia marca. Gracias a esto, en la actualidad nuestra empresa juega un importante rol en la industria frutícola chilena.

Esta importante decisión significó enfrentar nuevos desafíos cómo salir en busca de nuevos mercados y clientes, tras años de estrecha relación con las exportadoras que operan en nuestro país.

Gracias a su alto desempeño, Agrofruta cuenta con todas las certificaciones requeridas en los distintos mercados a nivel mundial: Global Gap, Tesco, Rainforest y HACCP, así como también con protocolos que le han permitido entrar en diferentes mercados como Norte América, Centro y Sud América, Europa y Asia.

Nuestra empresa cuenta con un equipo multidisciplinario de profesionales altamente capacitados en todas sus aéreas, quienes analizan y toman las mejores decisiones para adaptarse a las cambiantes demandas de la industria frutícola y cumplir con altos estándares de calidad.

¨The quality of our final product stands out for a commitment and continuous care towards our collaborators, our clients and our environment¨
