09-09-2021 On Monday, September 13, we expect the first entry of our new harvest of Polish apples. The first arrival concerns a batch of Gala Schnico Red. This marks the fifth season in which we have direct import lines with top fruit growers in Poland. These lines guarantee a year-round supply of apples from Poland.

This season, Polish apples are also available for the first time under our NERO Premium house brand, underlining the quality of the Polish product. The range of NERO Premium apples includes, in addition to Gala, JonaPrince, Golden Delicious and Red Delicious. The apples come directly from our growers in the centrally located regions of Mazovia and Kuyavia-Pomerania. In addition to the NERO Premium brand, we will continue to offer apples under the trusted Castle-Valley brand this season. From now on, all packaging will additionally feature pulp packing sheets. This will save us a considerable volume of plastic packaging material every year.
The forecasts for this season are particularly good. An apple harvest that is twice as big as last season is expected, with a high quality product as well. The trees of our growers are beautifully covered with apples, ready for harvest.
