Restrict the use of pesticides with our producer partners : 

These oranges are produced in Spain and are grown by producers who are committed to preserving the planet's biodiversity and reducing the use of synthetic pesticides. 
 

A winning recipe to encourage organic pest control:

1 – soil that has been enriched by trace elements, mushrooms and natural substances so that the plant can find what it needs to grow. 

2 – stimulation of natural defences by providing natural substances so the plant is more resistant.

3 – and if needed, the plant can be naturally treated with plant extracts, essential oils or algae extracts, or by introducing insects which eat predators.
