Organic farmers understand that what you put into the soil has a profound impact on what you get out of it. That is why they rely on such practices as hand weeding, mechanical control, mulches, cover crops, crop rotation and dense planting, rather than toxic and persistent pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic nitrogen fertilizers, to enrich the soil in which they grow their crops. They recognize that doing so provides plants with the nutrients they need to grow. Plus, it enables the absorption of major and micro-nutrients like Vitamin C, resulting in a higher nutrient content and often a better tasting crop.
Thorough planning and market analysis are needed to optimize results in the supply chain. Organic supply chains even require more detailed planning. Securing fair returns and minimize risks in the supply chain are crucial for every economically viable organic production unit. We are specialized in organic fresh produce supply chains and used to be a part of this continuous risk analysis and optimization of marketing opportunities.
Next to achieving an optimal marketing mix we provide organic (post-harvest) knowledge to growers as well as solid financing to support growers during capital intensive times (eg. harvesting).
