Processors making concentrates most often buy elderberries or cherries in tanker-trucks. In order to ensure stable and high quality, it is essential to keep the same-quality fresh fruits, coming from controlled production, available for as long as possible. Due to its own 3,500-tonne elderberry harvest, the length of the elderberry types' ripening period and its 1,000-tonne sour cherry harvest, BOTESZ has been an ideal supplier to Europe's leading concentrate producers for nearly 25 years.
On the sour cherry market, the varieties that are traditionally sought after as raw material for NFC juices are the Hungarian black sour cherry (aka Giganymeggy) and the Serbian oblachinska. The producers of BOTESZ have decades of growing experience. They produce more than 1,000 tonnes of these varieties, even with BIO certification, if need be.
