Pineapple is a fruit native to South America.
Fruits similar to it were depicted in many Roman works but the first appearance was in Guadeloupe in 1493 when Cristoforo Colombo travelled there.
Later pineapple also spread in other countries, such as Europe, Pacific Islands and eastern countries, where the climate and soil were ideal for its growth.
We import LOLA pineapples from Costa Rica, the country of the sweetest pineapple.
LOLA pineapples arrive in our headquarters after making a 15-day trip and they do not need to ripen in our warehouses as they are fruits that interrupt their ripening when they are detached from the plant.
LOLA pineapples are then distributed with personalized packaging to wholesalers, shops, supermarkets, big distribution and fruit and vegetable markets.
Our company controls and tracks every step and ensures that suppliers comply with GlobalGap or EuropeGap protocols and ISO 14001 certification that guarantees the farmer's commitment to a concrete reduction in environmental impact.
Our commitment to the Green Economy is also reflected in the use of a photovoltaic system, located on the roofs of warehouses, which is able to power our cold rooms by providing electricity.
