Sustainability -
for a healthier future

Here too we believe in cooperation. Every green contribution helps! Being more sustainable means making constant improvements.

Fair trade
We are fair traders: we pride ourselves on the fact that our growers around the world respect human rights and offer good working conditions. That is why we value long-term relationships with our customers and growers.
Sustainable crops
Our growers excel at environmental friendliness. They use the newest techniques; drones, alternative sources of energy such as geothermal heat or wood chips, hydroponics and cultivation on trays.
We strive to have the smallest possible ecological footprint. We sort almost 90% of our waste, grow fruit and vegetables on a demand-driven basis and plan our transportation smart and efficient. Despite all of our efforts, we sometimes look for alternative destinations, among others to the food bank (Voedselbank) and Instock or used in Buitenbeentjes soup.
Healthy products
Every day, we supply top quality, safe, delicious and healthy products, that encourage people to eat fresh fruit and vegetables. We also try to make life easier for people enabling them to make sustainable choices, taking into account the present and the future.
Our employees
It is obvious we cannot achieve this by ourselves. After all, we are the sum of all the people who work for us. Offering a pleasant working environment, good working conditions with attention to their personal development. We bring out the best in each other because we enjoy what we do!

Naturally we are also involved in our local community. We have partnered with a number of local initiatives, we also offer work experience programmes for people with a disadvantage on the labour market and structural support to a number of charities.
