Why are they so much more orange than others?
Do we use chemicals / additives?
The real question should be why other carrots are not so bright orange.
Our carrots are not certified organic – they are GLOBAL G.A.P. certified and packed in a BRC certified packhouse to produce ready to eat snack carrots. This ensures our product is consumer safe and ready to eat.
Factors that could impact the brightness of the orange include:
Soil conditions. Our soil is ideal to produce bright vibrant orange carrots.
Amount of sunlight. Growing in Portugal year round, we have lots of sun.
We harvest as needed year round. We do not store our carrots for longer periods in the ground or in coolers.
We harvest, wash, polish and pack allowing as little time as possible between the stages to impact look and taste.
All we use is drinking water – to wash and polish our carrots. Nothing else is added.
The variety we use is an old variety with a thin skin, making them bright orange.
Polishing partially reduces the skin, making the orange even more vibrant.
The critical factor to keep the colour and maximize the taste, is packing the product as soon as possible.
Nothing is treated or added.
We believe, we just happen to produce the brightest orange and tastiest snack carrots.
Taste them for yourself.
