Tomate JOUNO is committed to environmentally friendly production methods and supplying our clients with healthy and wholesome produce. We show our commitment to sustainable development in the following three ways: energy saving, water management and waste management.
At every level of the company, Tomate JOUNO takes measures to reduce its environmental impact. As part of this commitment, we place particular emphasis on water, energy and waste management.
For example, we minimise heat loss by recovering the heat generated during electricity production and using it to heat our buildings and greenhouses in winter.
We also optimise our energy usage through expert adjustments to the resources necessary for the growth of our plants. For example, we can adapt the conditions in our greenhouses thanks to automated watering and temperature regulation.
It’s thanks to this harmonious habitat that bumblebee colonies, introduced at the start of the flowering period, can perform a miracle of nature: the pollination of tomato plants, which allows the fruits to form.
Consumers today want to be sure that the food they buy is of the highest quality.
Our production conformity certifications and ISO, GLOBALGAP and BRC quality controls meet these expectations.
This certification, obtained in June 2001, is an official mark (with rigorous specifications) of the distinction and excellence of all Tomate JOUNO products (see product sheets): guaranteed low sugar content ensures great-tasting tomatoes all year round; Tomatoes cultivated without insecticides thanks to beneficial insects; Tomatoes harvested at optimal ripeness to let the very best of the product shine through.
In December 2003, we added this certification to our other marks of quality, with this one providing additional guarantees on sanitary, social and environmental aspects (excellent hygiene, working conditions and management of waste release back into the environment).
Based on the most demanding hygiene and food safety standards, this quality control allows us to satisfy even our most discerning clients.
