Our vegetables are subject to strict quality controls from the very beginning. The seedlings come from a selected growing company just nearby – the outstanding quality of all our plants is guaranteed. Our in-house agricultural scientists and engineers constantly check and assess the plants. Systematic quality control makes it possible to document a product's entire journey –from the seedling to the precise time of harvesting, all the way to delivery to retailers. Quality is our top priority, both before and after the harvest. In vacuum refrigeration plants, the vegetables are cooled to a core temperature of 2°C within just an hour. The two modern refrigeration plants have a capacity of up to 90 pallets per hour. Just six hours after harvest at the most, the vegetables are on their way to the consumer. That is what we mean by harvest-fresh quality. The business has been certified in accordance with the QS and GLOBALGAP guidelines since April 2004. This guarantees that the goods can be comprehensively traced, from the supermarket shelf all the way back to the field.
GLOBALG.A.P. is an internationally recognized standard for agricultural production. The goal is safe and sustainable agricultural production for the benefit of producers, traders and consumers around the globe. Among other things, the standard calls for greater efficiency in production. It improves business results and reduces waste of vital resources. Likewise, it calls for a general approach to agriculture that establishes best practices for future generations. GLOBALGAP is what is known as a "pre-farm gate standard." This means that the certificate covers the entire product process, from sowing and planting through all subsequent farming activities to delivery. GLOBALGAP is a business-to-business brand and therefore not directly visible to the consumer. GLOBALGAP certification is carried out by more than 100 independent and recognized certification bodies in more than 80 countries. It is open to all producers worldwide. GLOBALGAP organizes annual corporate audits for producers as well as additional unannounced inspections.
