ECOFROZ was founded in 1995 as a result of a long and planned dream of a group of Ecuadorian Farmers, that had been previously involved in farm production, financing and industrialization of agricultural products in Ecuador.
Our farmers had been land owners for many generations having more than 3,000 hectares of rich agricultural land available for planting and harvesting vegetables in the Andean area of Ecuador, that lie in fertile valleys in the highlands at around 3,000 meters above sea level. Approximately 70% of the raw material grown for Ecofroz is cultivated in our own plantations, and the rest is contracted with experienced farmers that have been producing broccoli and cauliflower for more than 20 years.Read more

Ready-to-eat foods are foods you don’t need to cook food that has already been cooked. You store these in the refrigerator or freezer, until you are ready to use them. Although ready-to-eat food is convenient, some require special handling to ensure food safety.
Quality Policy Statement
ECOFROZ was conceived from its constitution in 1996, to have the highest technological Individual Quick Freeze (I.Q.F.) facility in South America, and to provide the best Quality Products from the Highlands of Ecuador, for freezing and exporting to the international markets, and to provide Quality Service to our customers.
Quality Control is an integrated process that starts in the fields, continues through the transportation of raw materials to the plant, and is closely controlled at the reception of the products. During the planting, harvesting, processing and freezing stages, our quality control people inspect every batch of production in order to assure consistency in all our production.Read more
ECOFROZ lies in a very green valley within the Andean Mountains of Ecuador, surrounded by 3,000 hectares of the agricultural land, at an altitude of 2,800 meters above sea level. Temperature is very stable at an average of 10 to 18° Celsius throughout the year, thus providing consistent production and quality year round.
Having our plant and fields at this altitude gives our products a very distinctive advantage. Because of the altitude and the cold temperatures, there are almost no insects in our Andean valley. This factor allows us to very little pesticides on the crops, as other areas of the world does.Read more
