Gilles DE PUINEUF
General Manager Innatis
A unique expertise. Innatis: first private apple producer in France.
A total product control – for over 60 years – allows us to bring our customers best-in-class fruits thanks to a complete mastery of our profession while integrating the entirety of our channel (varietal research, fruit nursery, orchard production, storage and packaging, sale, and marketing).
Innatis strives to keep an environmentally respectful course of action in all its production processes throughout the channel.
The benefits of our expertise in our organic agriculture, our cultural methods, and our fruit stations, as well as our commercial offices, is progressing year over year to make sure we can best serve our customers and our suppliers. For the sake of relevance to external parties and internal improvement, our quality control services are auditing our processes throughout the seasons.
Our orchards have always been innovative thanks to their unique and new varieties.
It never simplified our technicians and culture managers’ work, but those challenges got us used to work with nature and all its constraints, but especially its strengths that allow us – no matter the variety or the location – to be able to produce the best fruits independent of the weather.
We invest each year in R&D programs to analyze and better understand our trees, our apples varieties, our soils, our “terroirs”, and our surrounding environment.
We lean on our acquired experience coming from 3 generations of arborists and their precious knowledge of nature. We pride ourselves by knowing better than anyone else the importance of being able to cast doubt on our knowledge, being able to analyze, and test in laboratory active ingredients from our soil and fruits.
