The plant is shaken so that the nuts fall to the ground.
The nuts are collected with the Monchiero harvester.
The nuts are cleaned and deposited inside the oven that puts them in ideal moisture condition on the same day of harvest.
In our facilities, the nuts are conditioned and classified.
Then the pecans are peeled.
Pecans are packaged in a modified atmosphere, achieving optimum conservation.
We strongly believe that, by following sustainable practices, we can improve productivity, be more responsible with the environment and at the same time be more competitive with the efficient use of resources. We are covering this approach in several areas, being our main goal to do without chemical fertilizers, replacing them by the incorporation of organic fertilizers, made by ourselves, composed of pine needles extracted from our own pine forest and chickens waste.
Currently we have reduced the applications of herbicides, making a more efficient and conscious management of the soil cover. This is also reflected in lower fuel consumption and less soil compaction. Phytosanitary control is also treated with sustainable criteria, making the most of the benefits of the ecosystem and other insect species. In Valor Pecan, each decision is made with the conviction that being sustainable is the path, not the goal. This road leads to a better world!
