The small fruits of Lusomorango – raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries – grow mainly in the Southwest Alentejo, with full respect for more sustainable agricultural practices and using innovation to respond to pressing challenges, such as careful management of water use and territory and biodiversity preservation, in harmony with nature.
Affected by the Atlantic winds and the hundreds of hours of sunshine provided by the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, our small fruits grow with all the flavor, while respecting the most sustainable agricultural practices, which include good soil use and accurate water management, without the use of pesticide. Due to its delicate nature, small fruits are harvested by hand, with all the care and know-how of our producers and workers.
During harvest, Lusomorango’s small fruits are deposited in small boxes, so that they do not become damaged and to reach the consumer in all its glory. Afterwards, they are coded in batches and labeled to ensure traceability and compliance with food safety standards. Then, the small fruits go to freezers where they are kept in a controlled atmosphere (between 0º to 1º degrees).
Due to their characteristics and high sensitivity our small fruits need extra care in transport to ensure that they arrive in the best conditions to consumers, with all freshness and flavor. In addition to ensuring a controlled atmosphere, our transport allows the best possible packaging of the fruit, so that waste is reduced to the maximum.
Lusomorango has invested in the quality of its fruit as a differentiating factor and as an anchor of its business model. That has allowed Lusomorango to place its production in highly demanding markets, such as Germany, the United Kingdom, and the Nordic countries. Over 95% of our production is for export. Today, the small fruit sector is a leader in exports in national fruits and vegetables.
