“I already knew the fruits and vegetables market well because I have over 25 years of experience. I started this company to take care of the entire process of purchasing at the grower to transport to our customers.
Our network provides almost every product, which we import from multiple countries in Southern-Europe. Mainly from our target countries such as Spain, Italy and France. We’re constantly aiming for fresh quality products that we can sell all year round.
Every day again, we hear exactly what products can be harvested that day. With this information we can inform our customers with the correct overview. And with this information we can promise that our products are fresh!”
Peter Smets - Director of Smets Food Trading B.V.
