Transfer of know-how allows for local supply
Consumers in the Czech Republic are increasingly asking for more local and regional food options. In response, two Dutch growers who work with the Fresh entity, Bakker Barendrecht, have extended their cultivation and know-how to the country to help provide the local entity, Bakker Czech Republic, with a steady supply of local broccoli for its leading retail customer. 2017 saw the project’s first successful season with a field of 35 hectares allowing Bakker s.r.o. to supply 100% of the retail chain’s demand.
