Our History
The basic concept for our company Purés y Derivados de Nayarit S de RL Mi (PDN) was born in the year 2006 as we looked for a solution for the loss of the guava harvest in our region. The largest challenge we found in processing guavas was the job of extracting the small seeds that the fruit has, in a practical manner. We started with a hand extractor for apple sauce using cooked guavas and freezing the sauce that was extracted. The product was very flavorful and had a nice texture. We could also mix it with other fruits such as strawberries or blackberries which also gave it an attractive presentation.
Our next step was to design a machine that would do the work in larger quantities. By the end of 2008 we had our prototype functioning and we started construction of a small factory designed specially for processing the guava sauce. On the 1st of April of 2009 we had our inauguration with many government officials present. In the following 8 months of 2009 we processed more that 10 metric tons of guava to check all the aspects of our NEW product. This is only a small percentage of our present capacity of over 40 metric tons a year.
At present we process 3 types of products
a)Guava sauce: this is our principal product which we package raw or cooked and sell in vacuum packed bags of up to 2 Kg. This can also be mixed with other fruits.
b)ATE (chewable candies) of guava. This is sold in three presentations, natural candies, fire balls of guava or guava bars with chocolate
c)ATE guava paste (sweetened) for baking and for ice cream
All our products have the seeds extracted and are made with only top quality guavas.
We can also export fresh guavas in boxes or frozen guavas with or without seeds in bags
