Sustainability

Sustainable natural resource management

En nuestro afán por seguir avanzando e investigando, CASI cuenta con un laboratorio post-cosecha desde el año 1994, donde se analiza el comportamiento de unas 80-100 variedades entre comerciales y material nuevo por campaña. Realizamos estudios de packaging, films, así como diferentes técnicas de conservación y desinfección para garantizar la calidad de nuestros productos y buscando siempre hacerlo de la forma más sostenible.

Actualmente, estamos en vías de certificarnos en el Módulo Spring de Globalgap, en huella de carbono y estudiando también el certificar producto en Huella hídrica.
