Ideal territories for a year-round offer
The typical characteristics of the natural regions of Nogent (clay and limestone soil, North of the Aube), the Champagne plains (chalky soil, South of the Aube), the Bassée (very sandy soil, South-East of the Seine and Marne), and the Provinois (clay soil, South of the Seine and Marne), allow us to propose you a French offer almost all year round.
French offer and import calendar
The Ferme de Fontenay has a storage capacity of 12,000 tonnes located directly adjacent to the packaging buildings.
After harvesting, the products are stored in different types of bulk or pallet box storage capable of drying, ventilating, regulating and cooling the products.
All products in storage are identified by a batch number determined at the time of growth.
The various storage boxes are connected by radio frequency in order to be able to monitor the storage conditions at all times.
To meet the needs of its customers and ensure constant quality throughout the year, Ferme de Fontenay has created a network of production partners throughout the world that guarantees that its products meet the same traceability and sustainable agriculture requirements as those it applies on its farm
