The methodology used was the qualitative study and the study case, where the procedure adopted for the information survey was the interviews with producers from two cities of the São Paulo state and with the wholesalers of the Entreposto Terminal de São Paulo (ETSP). Differences were found among the producers from Guapiara and Paranapanema, which the first region is formed of simpler producers without access of information or any kind of technology. Most producers of the second region are optimist about the use of standardization and classification rules and emphasizes that its use is the reason of the peach and nectarine commercialization success, by this, they invest in the improvement of fruit quality by updating, when possible, the technologies used in the production and post-harvest processes.
