The first aubergines are available at nursery Zwinkels. The Zwinkels family is entrusting STC International with the sales of all of their products. Because of this cooperation STC International becomes the extension of nursery to the customer. ‘’STC International is specialized in the sales of vegetables. We are doing business directly with the customer which shortens the chain’’, explains Peet Zwinkels.
