In its third production season, the Pulpera de San Rafael processing plant, which is located in the town of San Rafael in the province of Mendoza, has decided to incorporate new products to diversify its offer. The plant, which has worked with stone fruit in previous seasons, has begun to process pears and to elaborate, for the first time, apple pulp.
Juan Carlos Cappadona, the head of the plant, stated that another novelty was the pilot test that they were going to carry out with melons from the department of Lavalle. The fruit will arrive soon and - prior to its chopping - it will enter the production line.
The processing plant also plans to process pumpkins in the near future.
The plant also processes tomatoes, a product that had a very good performance in the previous season. “We incorporated it into our product line last year. Industrialists need our factory and we have achieved a good association," said Cappadona. "The goal was to process stone fruit, but we are managing to expand our new product plan and we'll have almost 6 months of work."
A call for quince producers
The Pulpera de San Rafal has called out to producers who want to sell their quinces, from which the company will make pulp.
The reception for the 2020 season begins on Monday the 16th. Starting that day, any producer interested may go to the processing plant at the National Park Industrial Park or to the La Linea Cooperative, located on Calle Esmeralda and El Moro de Cuadro Benegas.
