A family business that began in 1984, San Clemente had a simple philosophy of contributing to a healthy lifestyle by providing wholesome, fresh and high quality food products. Based out of Santiago, Chile, San Clemente has since realized this mission through their fully integrated operation that begins at the nurseries and ends with quality fruit on the table.
Being the third largest exporter of apples in Chile with 5,200,000 boxes of fruit for export, it’s no surprise that San Clemente has selected Spectre Hand-Held plus Spectre Top Down to gain valuable early size and color data for their apples.
Stryjno Sad, or The Association of Fruit Producers, was first established in 1998 by several fruit growers from the Rybczewice commune in the Świdnica district of Poland.

Stryjno Sad are also part of the well-renowned LubApple, a global fruit producer that reaches 25 countries across the world.
Currently, Stryjno Sad has 93 fruit producers from the fruit growing regions of Lublin, Wilga, Warka and Sandomierz, that produce 15,000 tons of apples annually. By using Spectre Hand-Held for their apple varieties, Stryjno Sad will have an even more efficient workforce during harvest while also optimizing their warehouse management.
