Passionate about the product
A comprehensive service from the field to your table: farming, handling, packaging and commercialization.
Frutas La Carrichosa S.C.L. was born in 2003 thanks to the devotion of two companies with a long family tradition, Puntal Agraria S.A. and Agrícola Pony S.L., which decided to unite their efforts in order to create a cooperative with the aim of offering a higher quality product and a better service to the consumer.
Nowadays, in partnership with S.A.T. Los Melgos and Soto de la Zarzuela S.A., they have increased their production, continuation and sale of a product which is cared for and treated in a very personal way and with great devotion. Years of experience and commitment join these families who have grown up with a passion for this activity.

To our strong national market we can add our 15+ years of international experience, focused mainly on the UK and Germany, but also including other destinations such as France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Greece, United Arab Emirates and Singapore. Finally, we commercialize 100% of the products, thus controlling the unique quality that represents our company.
The benefits of our land
The ideal location of the southeast of Spain allows us to have an extensive annual production. Our orchards, located in different municipalities in the Region of Murcia, offer us the possibility of dividing the territory into very early-harvest areas (Alguazas-Archena-San Javier), early-harvest areas (Blanca-Abarán) and semi-early-harvest areas (Cieza-Calasparra).
With this distribution, we extend the working months and can be that our fruits are harvested despite possible climate disasters. We also use anti-hail netting systems.
Commitment and values that mark our work
At Frutas La Carrichosa, we are aware of the importance of paying attention to every detail and of the necessary devotion to offer a fresh and healthy product. This is why we submit to the strictest quality controls in order to certify our trust and work.
We support the Integrated Agriculture Plan of the European Union, completely respecting the environment and using methods which are only slightly invasive to nature and aimed at reducing waste to zero. We work hard on our commitment to optimize natural resources with varieties which are less water-demanding and have autoimmunity in order to globally reduce our use of pesticides and pollutants. A very important genetic role by which we carry out variety renovation.
