Innatis

Marc BAHBAH
Pomanjou Selections

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.

 

Innovation and Development

Innovation is a key component of our corporate strategy and culture; it plainly occupies its prominent place in the group’s growth. This dedication to innovate is one of the main reasons why INNATIS is the biggest private pure-apple-player in France today.

We believe that R&D towards new varieties, but also new farming, storage, packaging, and transport techniques are essentials so that we can quickly evolve and build upon what we already have accomplished in a fast paced and competitive industry. We cannot afford to loose our leadership position in todays world, which is why important research and development budgets are allocated everywhere throughout the channel.

Our deep knowledge of apple varieties, their genetic, their behavior, and our mastery of (cold) storage and packaging methods rely on important acquired techniques, coming from numerous years spent researching and innovating to remain one of the most relevant actor of the sector.
