Naturalmente Bio is a small-scale company working directly with progressive farmers, providing a service to preserve and package their fresh products into glass jars, market and sell them. They work from a simple general kitchen that allows them to rapidly can a range of traditional vegetables, ensuring that the abundant harvest of a particular season can be enjoyed for the rest of the year.
Canned products – including many organic ones – often come from large industrial plants, where there is little or no transparency in how they are prepared or the nutrition in the harvested crop preserved. Naturalmente Bio’s small-scale approach enables them to keep their offer diverse, reduce the number of machines they run and optimise their processes, keeping their ecological footprint low and creating better working conditions:
- Products are preserved using vacuum cooking and low temperatures
- All ingredients are natural and organic
- Production numbers are limited
- Products are made with the lowest energy consumption and using glass packaging.
For Edna and Guillermo it is important to offer quality products with high nutritional value; they produce their chickpea and lentil jars using pulses grown by La Puput.
