Belgium: Approximately 15 ha of lit specialties at Veiling Hoogstraten:
- Cherrystar (variety Juanita)
- Miss Perfect (variety Axiany)
- Princess (variety Merlice)
- Ministar (variety it Brioso)
- Gele cherry (variety SummerSun)
- Gusto (variety Goetine)
- Toma D'or (variety Rivolo)
- Torrito (variety Sunstream)
Den Berk, Luc Beirinckx, Stoffels bvba, The Breyn and Rovak have all invested heavily in lamps on their business and will be producing lit tomatoes this winter.
With approximately 31 ha of cultivation using supplemental lighting, production is continuous and Veiling Hoogstraten now has an uninterrupted supply of tomatoes. About half the cultivation is dedicated to specialties. The other half are standard vine tomatoes.
Because of the increasing demand for quality products during the winter, Veiling Hoogstraten has invested heavily in supplemental lighting, resulting in large volumes of lit tomatoes during the season. Lighting offers flexibility with consistent quality, and also allows the Belgian auction to respond to specific demands from the sector. Benefits of additional lighting during the winter months include the increased production per square meter, production diversification, continuity of supply and local production. Of course it also takes into account the different aspects of sustainability.
