In the covid era, and especially during the months of confinement last year, it was clear that the farming has taken center stage it really deserves because of its importance in the food chain. The worst moments of the pandemic showed that the countryside does not stop and that it has the responsibility to keep going so as not to run out of markets and bring food to families.
Bonnysa is an Alicante company that knows how to respond to these demanding situations. Since its founding in 1956 it has faced numerous challenges that have helped it to become one of the most important fruit and vegetable companies in Spain and one of the main exporters to the EU.
Tomatoes, guacamole, tropical fruits, dates, grape, su awarded tomato grated (2 times Flavor of the Year) or its dried tomato are some of the examples of how Alicante is capable of innovating with products in great demand and daily consumption. Thousands of homes in Europe have some of the products that the company grows and produces, but all this has a reason in addition to the taste and dedication with which they work; the sustainability.
From this company they take very seriously the support to the environment. For years they have had an extensive internal program dedicated to sustainability. In Bonnysa they work hand in hand with nature making the most of resources and reversing this experience in the crops, thus achieving greater productivity and maximum flavor.
Some of the actions they carry out are, for example, the collection of rainwater and reuse of water, where they exceed 30% of the company’s water needs. Greenhouses have different systems that collect water, both from rain and condensation, and is conducted to tanks and reservoirs for use. Likewise, and due to its hydroponic cultivation, irrigation water is reused and fuels the cycle of consumption again.
Another of the company’s milestones is to have high-efficiency cogeneration plants and biomass plants, where the company converts CO2 into energy and oxygen thanks to its conversion when introducing it in the crops. In this way the plants son more productive and millions of kg of CO2 are no longer being released into the atmosphere. In addition, the production of energy from renewable sources of this and other processes allows Bonnysa to have 37% of the total renewable energy.
These, among the many actions carried out by the company, represent a high added value in its products. Consumers increasingly demand to be able to purchase products from responsible companies and consistent with the environment.
As the company points out, «what is valuable is becoming what is required, and from our beginnings our work with the environment has been that of symbiosis, from the substitution of traditional phytosanitary products for biological fight (predators that feed on pests) Y use of natural biostimulants to supplement the use of fertilizers.
Undoubtedly, the exemplary path of the company in this regard is a turning point in the sector and therefore the most important retail brands trust in Bonnysa.
