We are a Brand of Premium orange juice that is born after 30 years of experience in the planting y growing of oranges in “La Blanquita”. A farm with more than 150 years of existence in a region that has had great development in the growing of citric fruits during the last decades in the country.
Our processing plant and center of distribution and commercialization are located in the town of Fredonia – Antioquia. From there we make sure we guarantee the highest standards of quality in our processes of production and pasteurization.
In Balay we care about quality. We currently hold the BPA (Buenas Prácticas Agrícolas) certification for crops. This accreditation is granted by the Instituto Colombiano Agropecuario – ICA to farmers who implement a series of good practices in their farms in order to guarantee safe production of fresh fruits and vegetables.
In addition, since 2016 we have initiated the process of certification in BPM (Buenas Prácticas de Manipulación de alimentos), Haccp and Iso 9001, all of which aim to guarantee our consumers the best conditions of production and manufacturing.
We also hold the INVIMA registration number: RSAA12I65414 and are a member of the group of companies that support the country brand “marca país Colombia”.
Social and environmental responsibility
Nowadays 80% of the work force employed by Balay in La Blanquita, comes from “La Carrilera”. A small population located in the shore of the Cauca River to which Balay represents the main source of income. We have the policy of hiring women who are in charge of their families as a way to contribute to the wellbeing of this community.
