If anything happens to one of our partners anywhere in the world, we stand by their side to show our solidarity and support.”
SanLucar provides 365 days of the year a range of approximately 90 various fruits and vegetables. The broad range of goods comes from 35 different countries, including Peru.

The philosophy “Taste in harmony with people and nature” guides SanLucar activity: from the selection of varieties and the production areas, to the way the company presents its products at the point of sale.
