The European markets are the company’s most important commercial stronghold, and it currently doesn’t see any real opportunities in long distance exports
“We have made some sporadic exports to China, but our large volumes will not end up on this market. It is too much of a risk for us,” states José García, owner of the company.
However, the company from Murcia is particularly interested in the foreign markets that are closer to hand.
The company, which started its activity in 1997 in the parish of La Estación de Blanca, in Murcia, has a current produce portfolio ranging from persimmons to table grapes and stone fruit.
The last category is the most important one and it covers Eximia’s activity from mid-April to the months of July-August, a period when it starts producing grapes and that links up with the first persimmon productions in October, García explains.
“We are trying to be present on the market for as long as possible because the chains demand continuity. For this reason, our stone fruit includes from the earliest to the latest varieties.”
Regarding the current campaign, the manager explains that “it would be reckless to talk about what the final result could be, but everything indicates that, at the moment, and if the weather conditions don’t play any tricks on us, there will be an important volume of fruit, with the exception of apricots, but this still remains to be seen.”
