Staay Food Group has King courgettes again

The season at Staay Food Group has started again. Today, the first King courgettes were unloaded. "The King courgettes are of good quality. The forecasts are great. The weather is good, and the crops are looking nice and good. The harvest forecast is around 25,000 tonnes. The Escobar&Casta├▒eda - Staay Food Group alliance leads to a combination of a strong brand, consistency in cultivation, quality, packaging, volume and flexibility," says Matthijs Vlasblom.

Quality management and certifications
Integrated crop management is guiding. This sustainable cultivation method fights diseases and pests with natural enemies. The quality departments consistently perform checks to guarantee specific demands to the customer. The courgettes are packaged by hand, rather than by machine. This packing method prevents the damage that can occur with mechanical packaging."

Guarantee for optimum quality and shelf life

"In the modern packing station, 8 state-of-the-art packing lines are operational to package these lovely King courgettes with care. The King Courgette brand stands for quality, its products meet the highest standards for food safety. We have certifications such as Global Gap, BRC and IFS."

Range and packaging
"Our range comprises green and yellow, but also round courgettes. The King Courgette is available in 5 kg carton, EPS and IFCO. In addition to these standard packages, other varieties are also available, such as sealed, flow pack and net bags," he concludes.
