Garlic is sold in 3 categories :
Category 1 is a good quality garlic, intact, healthy, clean, with tight cloves.
Category 2 is a merchantable garlic with certain allowable defects. This garlic is ideal for «zero waste» ranges or for industrial processing.
Industrial Category is a garlic intended for processing or aroma extraction.
All farmers in our structure are concerned about respecting the environment, tradition and taste.
They are involved in various quality approaches, such as GLOBALG.A.P., HVE (HEV – High Environmental Value), Organic Agriculture and IGP Ail de la Drôme (PGI – Protected Geographical Indication Garlic from Drôme).
All of our production is methodically controlled by rigorous approvals.
