Gilfresh recently hosted a commercial visit from Sacoje. Sacoje are Gilfresh’s primary importer of produce during the winter months. They were established in 1988 and are situated in the Guadalentin Valley, which is one of the main growing areas of the Region de Murcia in Spain.
The partnership has been in place for over 10 years and they are programmed to provide us with Broccoli, Kale, Baby Veg, Sweetheart and Savoy from November until June, when the Irish weather is not suitable for these crops. Approximately 2000 tonnes are imported each year.
