Our oldest flavours, some since 1952, such as Rocha Pear and Peach. Some are more pulpy, others are more liquid, but always full of generosity and flavour. Here, we give life to our roots, orchards, land and fruit.
Our vegetables are made with passion and a lot of experience. Their preparation follows the traditional recipe of cooking in water and salt, using only natural ingredients, guaranteeing their quality and rich flavour, without colouring, preservatives or stabilizers.
100% Portuguese Tomato from Ribatejo, essential for our health and with our special touch to balance its natural acidity until the flavour is in total harmony, with a low salt content.
What is the difference between nectar and a 100% juice?
Both are drinks with a high fruit content and that's what distinguishes them from soft drinks and water.
Nectar can have between 25 and 99% of fruit, with the minimum legal limits defined depending on the type of fruit. For example, the minimum fruit threshold for peach nectar is 50%, while that for mango nectar is 25%.
100% juices are those that consist only of fruit juice, with no added water.
Our main raw material is fruit, its concentrates or pulps. We have juices made from concentrates and others made from pulps. Some of the popular flavoured pulps such as peach and pear are made in our factory, that is, we receive the trucks with fruit directly from the orchard and extract the pulp, always respecting the highest quality standards. Once the pulp or concentrate is obtained, we make the blend, that is, the mixture that will result in the final juice. Finally, pasteurization and packaging is carried out under strict aseptic conditions.

What does “made from concentrates” mean?
This means that the fruit present in the juice was concentrated at its origin, that is, the water was removed to allow it to be more easily preserved and transported. This water is replaced in the production process, recreating the juice just as the fruit that came from the tree, without any preservatives or colourings, or other additives.
And do the nectars still have added sugar?
Yes, but the sugar content remains unchanged. However, we use sugar at low levels and only to improve its taste. In recent years we have been reducing the sugar levels in our nectars to make them even healthier.
