CONSUMERS

 

What Hortex cares most about is consumer satisfaction and trust.

This is why we make our delicious products with passion from the best fruit and vegetables. There can be no compromises when it comes to our product quality. All our products are natural and we do not use any preservatives, as our technology enables us to make products whose expiry date does not need to be extended by adding chemical substances:

  • juices, nectars, and other beverages – They are thermally pasteurized or sterilized and then poured in aseptic conditions into cartons or bottles, which keep away air and microorganisms.
  • frozen fruit — Fruit is washed and deep frozen in a temperature below -25°C (shock freezing), which allows it to retain flavor similar to that of fresh fruit. It is then stored in a temperature below -22°C.
  • frozen vegetables – Vegetables are washed, blanched, and deep frozen in a temperature below -25°C (shock freezing), which allows them to retain flavor similar to that of fresh vegetables. They are then stored in a temperature below -22°C.

Our products are subject to strict quality control throughout the production process. This control begins on the fields where the fruit and vegetables we order are grown and it ends with careful quality control of the end product.

We use the latest technologies to ensure strict control and safety of our products.

Our plants have introduced comprehensive quality management systems. We communicate with our consumers in a fair and transparent way.

CONCERN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

 

 Hortex actively tries to protect the environment by:
