Vegetables are subject to weather changes and are therefore fragile, unpredictable and perishable.
In each step, from the field to the consumer’s plate, Bonduelle strives to improve the quality of its vegetables without altering them.
There are checks at every point irrespective of the location where vegetables are harvested and processed.
These checks are made by “Bonduelle experts” at every step in the production process from seeding to the finished product. Consumer tests are also conducted.
Extensive bacteriological and chemical analyses conducted in laboratories also make it possible to guarantee the taste, smell and nutritional values of each vegetable and product safety.
All Bonduelle production facilities ensures greater control over the quality of products and services. For vegetables manufactured outside the group 's factories and sold under the Bonduelle brand, a supplier authorisation and affiliation system is applied.
