Our commitment with society
The Plus BERRIES group is anchored on three fundamental pillars: social and environmental development, and economic viability.
Integrated in our value chain are our human resources, from suppliers to customers, establishing on each level Grow and Smart objectives, aiding our own team to consolidate professional life with family life, in a career based framework of motivation and personal well being.
Through agreements with regions where the plantations are found, the Plus BERRIES group provides employment to a 100 people during the year and more than a 1500 during the harvesting period.
The Plus BERRIES group does research and collaborates, side by side, with universities and Spanish technologies and technicians to increase the health of mankind, conceding the goodness of our fruit to empower our immunologic system as a product recommended to be consumed daily.
Blackberries stand out for their high levels of vitamins C and E. Blueberries and raspberries are also rich in vitamins and minerals. Because of its shape, colour, taste and smell, strawberries are considered to be aphrodisiac.
Nutritionally, all our BERRIES are beneficiary and contain vitamins, minerals and salicylic acid (strawberries could be considered as “natural aspirin”, only a 100gr. of strawberries contributes to the DCR of vitamin C).
All berries are rich in antioxidants which help to prevent degenerative diseases and contains more than 15 anti cancer causing agents, counters cardiac illnesses and helps to regulate cholesterol.
At present we are developing a programme documenting child nutrition and collaborating with the most important NGOs in our province.
