All the product supplied by the company is totally of its own production and it is not under any circumstances purchased by third parties, in order to have full control over quality.
As soon as they are harvested, the asparagus are immediately refreshed and, once they arrive at the farm, they are washed with water at a temperature of 0 ° C so that they can maintain the quality and most easily preserved characteristics, then they are processed and selected.
