Sustainable fresh vegetables
More and more consumers want the food they eat to be produced in a fair and sustainable manner, without causing harm to people, animals or our planet. Fortunately, sustainability has been a core tenet of our organisation for many years. Among other things, we employ the so-called 3R packaging policy that centres around reduce, reuse and recycle. Furthermore, we try to grow as many of our vegetables locally to cut back on transport costs, but only if this is actually the most sustainable option. Many vegetables in the Netherlands are grown in greenhouses that use natural gas. In countries such as Senegal and Morocco, vegetables are grown using natural sunlight; a far more sustainable and cheaper option than the average gas bill of a Dutch greenhouse. We always look for the most sustainable option for each vegetable and share these insights with our customers. In doing so, we can be transparent and honest about the sustainability of our vegetables.
