Certified Joy

JOYA® apples hold no secret for you.

since 1997

In 1997, our first orchard saw the light in the south-east of France. The JOYA® family now counts 250 growers over 260 hectares of joy !

Eco-responsible, sustainable and full of love

The planet doesn’t need us, we are the ones who need it. That is why our growers naturally prefer a responsible, environment- and biodiversity-friendly approach to arboriculture.

  1. Quality growing areas that combine the appropriate soil type and maximum sunshine levels

  2. Priority is given to natural orchard protection solutions. If necessary, in the case of a threat to the harvest, organic or synthetic products may be used sparingly and with precision

  3. Active investment in the preservation of biodiversity :
    development of safe places and habitat for insects and useful species against apple tree pests (hedges, nesting boxes).

  4. 100% recyclable material chosen for all JOYA® packaging : cardboard !
