For several years now, Blue Whale has been investing heavily in Research and Development in order to develop new apple varieties that are naturally resistant to apple scab, and to make these fruits part of a production process without any quantifiable pesticide residue. Zero pesticide residue is a global production approach that is closely monitored by our team of Blue Whale quality technicians and controlled by an approved laboratory. In 2018, we produced 1500 tons of apples and 400 tons of kiwi fruit using this production approach. This programme reflects Blue Whale's environmental and social commitments.
The primary goal is to always improve the quality of our production and our cultivation methods, but this approach also takes into account the expectations of our customers and the consumer.
Blue Whale is a founding member of the "Collectif Nouveaux Champs", which carries the Zero Pesticide Residue label.
