Kernel Export, S.L. acquired its first organic production farm in 1997. The farm, located in the Natural Park of Cabo de Gata in Almeria, Spain has a total of 725 hectares out of which 270 hectares are utilized for Kernel’s organic production. The rest is kept without cultivation.
This farm is perfect for organic production; on the one hand because there is no other farm nearby, diminishing the probabilities of cross-contamination, and on the other hand, the farm is located near the sea and therefore there are daily winds across the farm, which prevents the penetration of insects and pests from inland. In addition we grow 60 has of organics in Caudete (Albacete) to cover the production calendar.
In 2008, Kernel acquired the brand Kernelbio; today produces over 35,000 tonnes of organic production. Kernelbio production line is composed of all types of lettuces, cauliflower, broccoli, celery, spinach, parsley, and baby leaves.
Kernel is an organic grower and packer certified by the organic agriculture committee of the region of Murcia and BRC- Eurepgap audited by CMI.
