Consumers are more and more interested in eco-friendly produced apples. The Association Nationale Pommes Poires (ANPP) has therefore created a new label “Vergers écoresponsables” or “Eco-friendly Orchards”.
The “Eco-friendly Orchards” label guarantees that the apples are:
- 1. French
- 2. Hand picked
- 3. Produced in an eco-friendly manner
- 4. Have a protected biodiversity
- 5. Traceable to a specific orchard
- 6. Produced following strict independent quality control guidelines
There are now 1,500 French apple growers who have signed this charter in order to offer the best quality apple to the consumer.
