If Pink Lady® apples are so unique and generous, it is because they are the result of production excellence and rigorous selection: they have to meet many requirements.
Once picked, the apples are sent to one of our certified packing stations. They are carefully stored in a dedicated cold store room at a carefully regulated temperature, until they are moved on to the selection stage.
They go through a large scanner that detects apples with major defects. They are then classified by weight and size (legal obligation).
The apples then pass under the watchful eyes and through the trained hands of the professionals who select them.
The sorting lines are slowed down by 30% compared with the speeds used for other apple varieties, in order to ensure a visual control of each apple and to preserve their optimal quality.
They are carefully stored in trays or punnets that you may then find in your local store.
That is when the famous heart sticker is applied, a guarantee of quality.
Pink Lady® apples must comply with specifications based on objective criteria that guarantee optimal quality.
