The two marketers of garciaBallester Group have been created with the idea of a trade specialisation, distinguishing between the area of fruits and vegetables. That is the reason why they are given different company names. These marketers are in charge of controlling each customer gets his/her order as soon as possible, ensuring the perfect state of the product upon receipt.
KEEPING UP THE TRADITION,
GROWING UP WITH NEW IDEAS
The Garcia Ballester Group is much more than an exporter of fruits and vegetables. We have the reputation of a brand, of a family name and the experience of being the oldest company in the industry.
The Garcia Ballester Group was founded in 1907. More than 100 years later, our reputation and tradition speak for itself. New generations add value, help us to evolve and contribute to our future growth.
Today, we are an established, industry leading company with highly trained professionals.
We are and we must continue to be a company based on both tradition and evolution. We must move forward and continue growing, but we must constantly remember our humble roots that have brought us to where we are today.
We value and encourage new ideas and growth, but will always acknowledge our beginnings, our roots, our tradition.
