The story of Paco Belmonte, Biosabor
‘Rijk Zwaan has valuable contacts within the chain in our destination market’
Biosabor is a family business located in Cabo de Gata-Nijar’s Natural Park, a unique environment in the south of Spain. The company has been producing organic vegetables since 2008. It is the goal of Paco Belmonte, owner and director of Biosabor, to produce top-quality vegetables while treating both people and the environment with respect.
“Undoubtedly, 100% organic agriculture is the best strategy to reach that goal. Although Biosabor was originally devoted to the production of the organic truss tomato, we are currently focused on the development of more flavourful varieties. This will enable us to offer a completely organic product with a supreme taste, together with the guarantee of total transparency in our growing methods.”
“At Biosabor, we grow organic products close to our central office. We have developed a unique way of producing, processing and packaging our products at our new central facilities in the heart of Nijar to ensure maximum freshness. We produce tomatoes, sweet pepper, cucumber, watermelon and squash and also have a range of processed products like organic gazpacho, organic salmorejo and several fresh juices.”
“The collaboration with Rijk Zwaan is very valuable for Biosabor; Rijk Zwaan informs our technical staff about new varieties at an early stage and also shares details of new product and marketing concepts with us, such as Sweet Palermo organic for example. In addition, Rijk Zwaan has contact with chain partners and knowledge of the northern European market, which is the export destination for our organic products.”
