GOING FORWARD – NEW DEVELOPMENTS AT BORISA
The BORISA site is currently a modern centre for sorting, harvesting and packaging of fruits, open all year round. After putting into operation the cherry line, we invested in a line for sorting and packing of stone fruits, as well as in the purchase of two machines for packing the fruits in plates – tray sealer and flow pack. With the newly purchased modern equipment we can guarantee our customers the highest possible standard for fruit quality. That is why we are currently the preferred year-round supplier of fruits to all Bulgarian supermarket chains, an image that we have been building for more than ten years.
BORISA works all year round with fruits, mainly from Bulgarian growers, but also with imported fruits. In addition to cherries, our core production, we also grow Hinap, which are very popular now on the Bulgarian market. We also work with other cherry orchards, and with Bulgarian producers of pears, apricots, nectarines, plums, strawberries, raspberries, table grapes, blueberries, golden kiwi and more.
We recently installed a line for sorting and packaging of stone fruits (plums, apricots and nectarines) purchased from the New Zealand company COMPAC – a leader in the production of such equipment, which has the exclusive functionality for measuring the sugar content of fruits.
With its commissioning, the BORISA site has expanded its range of sorted and packaged fruits, in packages according to the most demanding requirements of the client.
NEW INNOVATIVE VARIETIES
In 2017, together with the Israeli company BEN DOR, we started the construction of an experimental orchard in order to test in Bulgarian conditions new, attractive varieties of plums, nectarines, pears and early apples. In the spring of 2021. this project was expanded with the planting of new 6 ha of pear plantations, again a selection of BEN DOR. The varieties are specially selected, with an emphasis on taste and aroma, and last but not least on the attractive appearance of the fruits, such as are the world trends in the fruit business.
BORISA practically proves that fruit growing in Bulgaria can be a stable and reliable business, and Bulgarian fruits are preferred in Bulgarian supermarkets, thanks to their excellent taste.
