Food safety starts at the source: the producer. Because every grower grows his fruit and vegetables according to strict quality labels. The strawberries are sold under the Hoogstraten brand, and the greenhouse vegetables are marketed as Flandria.
Our job at the cooperative is to make sure the delivered produce ends up in the proper quality class and to preserve their quality through optimum conditioning. Also, in the interest of food safety we strive for optimum traceability. Our certifications are an ironclad guarantee in this regard.
