Anxious to control the quality of its production, the group Azura created an internal nursery in Agadir to develop and control the production of grafted plants. We work according to the GSPP prevention system (a strict international health prevention system set up by professionals in the production of seedlings and tomato plants), which is subject to independent control audits.
100% of Azura's production now comes from grafted plants ; grafting makes the plant naturally more resistant to pests and diseases, and thus makes it possible to limit the use of phytosanitary products. Our production is planned according to the needs of our customers; it can therefore vary from year to year.
In 2019 / 2020, the areas planted with tomatoes will be 986 hectares. Each year the forecast tonnages of tomatoes or aromatic herbs are adapted to the needs of our customers.
100% of Azura tomato plants are produced in-house in order to ensure total control of crop quality. Azura also grows fresh herbs and edible flowers, intended for sale to professional networks.
Committed to the protection of the environment, Azura has been working for more than 20 years in partnership with Biobest, a company specializing in integrated biological protection cultures. Azura uses bumblebees and insects to help pollinate tomato plants and better protect them from pests.
The Azura group recently diversified its activity by creating an AZURA AQUACULTURE center, dedicated to the production of high quality clams (of the European species "Ruditapes Decussatus"). For 4 years, the company has set up a 2 hectare hatchery on the Atlantic coast.
Azura chose to integrate the sector and developed its expertise, producing clams itself.
