If there is one thing we have always been clear about at Iberiana, it is that we wanted to be at the forefront of the sector and be a benchmark company. To achieve our goal, we work constantly every day with our associates, but also by promoting and supporting the R+D+I department. We are convinced that investing in research is the key to improving and being able to offer our suppliers the best fruit and vegetables.

All phases of the fruit growing process are linked to research. From the moment of sowing to the logistics that take the products to the supermarket shelves.

How do we apply research to each stage of the process?

To begin with, at Iberiana we work closely with companies specialising in seed development and leading agricultural research institutes. This allows us to know which product and variety is best to plant depending on the area, in order to obtain the best results. The changes we are undergoing on Earth (climate change, pollution...), mean that we must be able to find new options that are adapted to the reality and the current situation of our planet.

Then, the next phase where research is essential is on the production side. The farmers we work with optimise the use of water resources through hygrothermal control of the crop fields. All this is possible thanks to the tests and trials carried out after field research, which also allows us to be environmentally friendly.

And to finalise the process, studies are carried out on consumer habits in order to be able to predict the tastes and needs of end customers. This allows us to optimise our resources.

As a result of our research, we have developed an Integral Control System that covers all stages of production (from cultivation to placing the products on supermarket shelves). Thanks to this exhaustive control, we have one of the most demanding seals of guarantee in the sector: the IFS certification.

Bee research: key to agriculture

But the research is not limited to the process of growing fruit and vegetables right up to the point of delivery to the end customer. Experts have warned of a food production problem due to the absence of bees. This pollinating insect is key to agriculture. Currently, thanks to studies, it is known that there is a decline in the population of bees. bees in the areas agricultural, and this is reducing the supply of some food crops.

The study published by the scientific journal 'Proceedings of the Royal Society Band carried out by an international team of scientists, shows that 75% of crops are under threat as they depend on pollinators that are currently in decline: bees.

In this sense, at Iberiana we have been collaborating for some time with various projects, for example, with the Friends of the Bees Foundation, and showing our support and backing in the development of research to raise awareness and protect bees and a function as vital and necessary as the one they perform to safeguard the survival of our ecosystem.
