WHO THEY ARE

Fostering sustainable farming practices, coupled with favourable climate conditions ensures the grapes grown by Moyca taste great whilst doing good for the earth. It’s clear to see why it is our producer of choice when it comes to our grapes.

Moyca started as a family farming business in 1995 in south east Spain.

The group has over 1,100 hectares of its own production areas based in Murica, Alicante, Badajoz and Argentina.

WHAT THEY DO

Working with leading breeding programs around the world, Moyca is able to ensure that different varieties of grapes are grown and harvested at the optimal times in the season. The company specialise in seedless and special flavour types, as well as green, red, black and organic, which was first developed and added to its varieties in 2016. From growing to harvesting and packing preparations, all of Moyca’s grapes are picked by hand and cared for by highly trained personnel.

The company is also a GLOBALG.A.P. certified grower, meaning it employs sustainable and safe farming practices, such as utilising high-tech irrigation techniques and composting all of its natural waste. Significantly, the company has recently installed solar panels on its farms in order to help generate renewable energy for the surrounding communities in Murcia.

TASTE THE PRODUCTS

The company’s hands-on approach to harvesting allows them to produce an interesting range of products, including Sable, Cotton Candy and Strawberry Grapes. Spinneys’ partnership with Moyca began approximately 10 years ago, and thanks to its shared values regarding quality, best practice and sustainability, the two have formed a strong relationship that has only grown over time.
