Each brand produced by our company offers a particular and distinctive profile and to achieve this we must assemble characteristic mixtures for them consistent with the defined Positioning and the sensory experience developed for their target groups of consumers.
Such profiles must be consistent over time, despite the fact that, as a good product from agriculture, it varies from season to season by variety due to natural factors, which means that each season and even during the same season there are to slightly change the composition of the mixtures to maintain that constant profile.
This is why our Master Oleologists exist, a team of highly qualified experts called “master blenders”, whose job is to know how to identify varieties, origins, areas or terroirs, bouquets, aromas, flavors, bitterness and hotness to achieve assembling the product. corresponding to the profile defined for each of our brands. With this we hope to satisfy the expectations of each diverse group of consumers, who seek a particular profile of their preference for their consumption, thus delivering a characteristic and consistent product over time.
In order to have various particular and unique mixtures, we must access various sources of raw material, distributed throughout the country and eventually even from abroad.
Our associated fields provide us with a percentage of very good quality base raw material, which we complement with bulk purchases produced by quality bulk farmers distributed throughout the country.
This guarantees us a diversity of profiles and less agricultural exposure and risk due to weather or health factors. That is why we supply ourselves from all the productive areas of the country, normally covering from Arica to Talca.
With this we hope to satisfy the expectations of each diverse group of consumers, who seek a particular profile of their preference for their consumption, thus delivering a characteristic and consistent product over time.
