A pioneer in stone fruit growing in Extremadura, Tany Nature has always been ready to take up new challenges. So, this season new products will be added to its basket, particularly green asparagus, which will maintain the same high quality and availability as the other reference items from January to April with local produce. Great tasting fruit, steady supply and total quality assurance are among key features of the Tany Brand. As reliable suppliers, Tany has earned a reputation of notable prestige throughout Europe, America, the Middle East and Asia. “Although we produce the highest quality stone fruit and manage to export it to the most far-flung destinations in excellent conditions, we now want to get back to our roots and retrieve the Spanish market,” said market development manager José María Naranjo, a member of the family that has been running Extremadura’s leading fruit business for 25 years. “Despite the crisis, we never stop working,” he said. “Tany’s greatest treasure is the extended family of over 2,600 people who make our project a reality, as thanks to the talent of each one we are able to produce, package and export the best fruit.” Naranjo also stressed the company’s strong social and environmental commitment. As for the uncertainty surrounding the onset of the stone fruit campaign, due to erratic flowering, the company has managed to handle the selection effectively and avoid problems caused by different fruit calibres. Naranjo is confident Tany will maintain its commitment to the best quality. “Our customers aren’t in for any surprises. We are a family business with several generations linked to the land; we know our fruit well and know how to work the fields.” That’s the word of a reliable and committed supplier.
Tany Nature, a leading agro-industrial group specialising in stone fruit, sold 40,000 in 2015 from its own orchards – 2,800 ha located in south-west Spain (Extremadura and Andalusia), south-eastern Portugal and Morocco. The Extremadura-based company works throughout the value chain, all the way from nursery plant production to marketing the fruit.
In recent years Tany Nature has been developing a broad range of varieties in stone fruit, with uniform lines from April to November, thanks to constant innovation and strategic alliances with breeders worldwide. “We’re focused on developing and marketing premium quality fruit, so flavour is a top priority in our breeding lines. In plums we are working with Sun World varieties, mainly in red flesh fruit, early ripening lines. Our plum orchard area has also increased in recent years. In apricots, we have a very interesting portfolio too. Our goal is to deliver fruit throughout the season with uniform quality,” said Celso Mateus, commercial manager at Tany Nature.
Tany Nature recently invested roughly €100M in its packing house at Zurbaran, Badajoz, to optimise processes and lower reduce costs, having achieved a reduction of €0.02/kg fruit in 2015. The target is set at €0.03/kg for 2016. Tany Nature exports to Europe and overseas, mainly to South Africa, Brazil, Canada and Asia.
