In tune with the current situation and the importance of contributing to the nation’s economic development, the agroindustrial company Victoria de Girón, essential hub for Matanzas province since its foundation in 1967, has not ceased in its effort to continue expanding the range of exportable products.

The company occupies an 500 square kilometer area in south-central Matanzas province, making it the largest citrus fruit producer in the country.

Of the 35,000 cultivable hectares, a large portion (38%) is citrus, among which grapefruit, oranges and Persian limes stand out, and 9% corresponds to other fruit trees, particularly mangoes.

More than 50 years of tireless work guarantees its top place within the country’s citrus companies. Over 20 years of experience in exporting fresh citrus fruits, juices and oils highlight its potential.

Also part of the Organización Superior de Dirección Empresarial del Grupo Agrícola, it company is strategically located only 140 kilometers from Havana, 160 from the José Martí International Airport, 191 from the Mariel development zone, 120 from Varadero International Airport and 2 from the national highway.

Its general director, Armando Perdomo García, explained to CubaPLUS magazine that the structure is made up of 15 Base Business Units, among them nurseries, production farms, citrus and fruit processing industry, profit center, and a trucking base and workshops. Productive diversification is Victoria de Giron’s main strategy, which has enabled the expansion of a universe where quality prevails. It produces: - Meat (pork, beef and poultry)
- Rice
- Protected crops (tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, cabbage, lettuce, watermelon, melon, pumpkin, bean, chard, eggplant)
These lines are destined for the national market in different important tourist centers of the country. The Cubanita brand represents the company’s leading product portfolio in the international market, with a presence mainly in Europe, the Middle East and the Caribbean - said Perdomo García - among which the following strands stand out:
- Citrus production (oranges, Persian limes and grapefruits) - Frozen grapefruit juice concentrate. The processing plant also obtains simple grapefruit and orange juice, from mechanical extraction of the fruit.
- Cold pressed orange and grapefruit oil (two highly coveted products in the international market).
- Aseptic mango puree (natural product obtained through mechanical extraction of mango pulp)
- Handmade charcoal (product made from citrus or marabou wood, dry to the touch, uniform black color, metallic sound).

One of the most notable facilities is the offer of guarantees with trade commitments entered into by means of a convincing and transparent legal framework in a market of high demand, supported by highly qualified staff. It should be noted that no production comes from genetically modified organisms, the fruit used as raw material comes from the company’s own land and no additives are added to the citrus fruits, which makes them completely natural products, so as to continue harvesting in the future.
