WHO ARE WE?

We have been involved in the handling, packaging and sale of oranges, tangerines, clementines and other fruit and vegetable products since 1960. In recent years, in addition to internationalizing our market and starting to export to other countries, we have also expanded our range of own-brand products, mainly with grapefruits, kakis, strawberries, melons, watermelons and cherries.

We have been operating in the orange sector since the beginning of the 1940s. We are specialized in high-end citrus fruits and have been positioned as a premium brand from the beginning.

“TORRES MEANS FLAVOUR, CULTURE AND MAXIMUM QUALITY”.

FLAVOUR AND QUALITY

Torres has always tried to differentiate itself through the unique flavour of its oranges, tangerines and clementines, and a freshness that guarantees a tasty fruit. Its main objective is the satisfaction of its customers, regardless of the variety and seasonality of the product.

PRODUCTION PROCESS

At Naranjas Torres, quality in the production process for our oranges, tangerines and clementines starts in the field and ends in the hands of the consumer, passing through all production stages.

 

Our product comes from farmers, from the land. All our farmers must follow an exhaustive control of the fruit and pesticides. They, together with our technical team, are a guarantee of quality and control of our production. We combine the tradition that comes with our experience of working for so many years in this sector, know-how, new technologies and constant R&D, making Naranjas Torres a benchmark company in the fruit and vegetable sector.

 

We work with citrus fruits all year round as our customers demand. To offer excellent quality product throughout the year, like our oranges, tangerines and clementines, our entire production process is under the strictest quality standards such as Global G.A.P. (since 2011), ISO-22000 (since 2013), IFS (International Featured Standards) and BRC (British Retail Consortium) (since 2017).  We also try to maximize the national citrus fruit season by using the available post-harvest technologies.

 

Our facilities in Almenara, covering an area of 23,000m², have 4 manufacturing lines and 3 pre-calibration and pre-product selection lines, where we select the best products.

OFFICES

The head office of Naranja Torres is located in Almenara (Castellón) and it also has 4 other offices: Mercabarna, Mercamadrid, Mercabilbao and Mercazaragoza. Its facilities in Almenara (Castellón), opened in 2002, turned Naranjas Torres into the most modern citrus fruit distributor in the Valencian Community, equipped with the latest advances in the reception, conservation, handling and shipping of fruit, making it worthy of the best company award it received that same year.

OUR FUTURE VISION

In the future we will continue adapting to new market trends, as well as seeking to expand our range of products, always without forgetting who we are and maintaining our corporate values such as the excellence and quality of our products, honesty, teamwork, and the combining of tradition and technology.
