Category Archives: Preserved fruit features

Preserved fruit features are part of our normal daily basis in Conservas Lazaya. We are a family business in Aragon devoted to preserved fruit and candied fruits for several generations. We quite understand our core business: preserved fruit features, plantations, cropping, processing… Our purpose here is to promote a better knowledge of candied fruits, fruits in syrup and other products we elaborate. In a nutshell, we are committed to promoting this land’s unique fruit culture, enlightening all those aspects that may be of interest for the uninitiated, but also for those who are wishing to deepen in the knowledge of this issue.

Our commitment to quality goes far beyond the local and international requirements. Thus, it is a style of doing things we have nursed from birth… In the process of refurbishing a traditional business, we have invested efforts to preserve those traditional methods and ancient know-how that has proven useful in growing, processing or packaging the fruit. But at the same time we have radically developed all those processes intended for improving quality and gaining the customer’s trust in our preserved fruit features for their complience with the most demanding requirements in food safety.

We look forward to spreading the preserved fruit culture of Aragonian sunny lands through this weblog, as well as transfering our expertise to those truly interestead in sharing the sweet flavours of Aragonian fruits.
