PROTO kiwis: high quality and new investments

The pinnacle of each fruit or vegetable season is the Harvest and for the 2018 – 2019 kiwi fruit season, the time draws near! By the end of October, the PROTO cooling rooms will start filling up with delicious kiwi fruit that will last up until June 2019. The company expects to harvest approximately the same quantities as the previous season, which equals to around 15.000 tons. For this season, PROTO will provide to its growers picking bags specially designed for kiwi fruit, in an attempt to improve the overall quality of its fruit.

Expanding our storage facilities

For this season, the fruit is expected to be slightly larger while the shape, color and overall quality seem to be even better than last season. PROTO, staying true to its promise for continuous improvement, is already expanding the main Storage Facilities located in Nea Efessos, just 80 km away from our Packing house. This new investment is of grave importance as from this season onward, PROTO will keep all of its fruit in new facilities, applying the latest technology for controlled atmosphere application and monitoring. The handling of the fruit is completely redesigned as the addition of new cooling rooms will result in the overall fruit management improvement.
