1) Production of seedlings
The right combination in seedling production ensures their quality, resistance and productivity. This is the first step to a successful orchard.
2) Soil preparation
Roots grow in search of water and nutrients. A fertile soil sustains strong, healthy trees.
3) Planting and cultivation
We plant the seedlings, our new generations of orchards, in especially prepared soil.
4) Sustainable Orchard Management
We take care of orchards in balance with nature. With ethics and responsibility, we perform nutrition, pruning, irrigation, disease and pest control, among other types of cultural practices that enhance the results of our work.
Our oranges are harvested fruit by fruit, every plot at the right time.
6) Farm-to-factory transport
The oranges are loaded into trucks and transported from the farms to our plants. Many other producers also support us by supplying raw materials.
Fruits are unloaded, selected, washed and sorted.
The orange juice is extracted, filtered and pasteurized. Oil is also extracted from the peels. Bagasse, peels and seeds are used to produce specific ingredients. Every part of our oranges can be used!
Before they are dispatched, the juice and ingredients are stored carefully according to the recommendations for each type of juice to preserve their quality.
10) Ground transportation
Made by trucks. Most of our orange juice is exported, but a smaller part is sold on the domestic market.
11) Santos Maritime Terminal
That’s where our juice leaves for the world.
12) Sea transportation and overseas terminals
Citrosuco’s fleet counts five vessels that transport orange juice to our terminals in Gent (Belgium), Wilmington (USA), Newcastle (Australia) and Toyohashi (Japan).
13) Delivery to customers
As soon as it arrives at the terminals, the orange juice is delivered to customers.
