"Over the past two years, we've heard many people asking 'when are we going to be allowed again?'. Now that time has indeed come, and we can finally meet at Fruit Logistica," says Sandra van der Veer, responsible for product and concept development at Oxin Growers.
"At the last Fruit Logistica in 2020, Oxin Growers had newly come out from the Best of Four and Van Nature cooperatives' merger. We haven't been idle since then. We'd like to give visitors an update on our products, sales models, and working methods, which we want to grow together. You can also take a look at our special products and get a sneak peek of the Oxin Growers' new box line."
In addition to its existing brands, Oxin Growers has developed a fresh, modern line of boxes for different products. These are ready for production for cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, chicory, and cabbage. The Oxin Growers boxes' design includes the required legal packaging information, and they are clearly identifiable in the logistics process. "We want to eventually be able to offer all our products in Oxin Growers boxes," says Sandra.
"Oxin Growers, one of the largest growers cooperative in the Netherlands, does the marketing for its members' fruit and vegetables. We arrange the contracts, invoicing, payment, and payment security. All Oxin Growers' fresh products are cultivated with care and attention by skilled farmers in the Netherlands and Belgium," says Ton van Dalen.
"Our affiliated fruit and vegetable growers work very responsibly with water and plant nutrients. All Oxin Growers' cultivation companies are GlobalGAP certified. And depending on which customers and markets they supply, they have additional certifications like BRC or On the way to Planetproof. Some of our members even farm organically."
"You can come and see the Oxin Growers box line at our stand (Hall 3.2, stand B-04). The coffee and goodies will be ready for open, honest discussions. Because that's what we at Oxin Growers stand for," Ton concludes.
