Join Rijk Zwaan in moving Freshly Forward at Fruit Logistica

‘Freshly Forward, from Foundation to Future’ – this is the theme Rijk Zwaan has chosen to encapsulate its roadmap for tackling today’s challenges. The vegetable breeding company is moving Freshly Forward both with and for partners in the entire fresh value chain, because fresh solutions hold the key to meeting many of today’s demands. Its robust and resilient solutions as well as inspiring innovations will be on display at Fruit Logistica, the leading meeting place for fresh chain professionals from around the world, in Berlin from 8-10 February 2023. Join Rijk Zwaan in moving Freshly Forward!

Fresh Foundation

In these uncertain times, it is important to get the basics right. To build a firm foundation for this, Rijk Zwaan consolidates its core strengths: robust, resilient and reliable solutions for fresh vegetables. One example is its range of new tomato varieties with unique high resistance (HR) against the Tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV). Another example is Alzamora RZ – a high-quality red pepper variety for greenhouse cultivation that performs exceptionally well, even at lower temperatures. And Rijk Zwaan’s solutions extend beyond varieties alone. The vegetable specialist also secures sourcing strategies by bringing retailers and growers together, for example.

Meanwhile, its online consumer platform Love My Salad provides delicious recipe ideas to help people cook affordable meals containing lots of vegetables. This is just one way in which Rijk Zwaan continues to inspire consumers to make healthy food choices, even during economically challenging times.

Fresh Future

Besides tackling today’s challenges, Rijk Zwaan keeps on moving forward by launching inspiring innovations that stimulate new choices for a Fresh Future. One highlight is the unique snack pepper Tatayoyo. Its flavour explosion sparks a sense of tropical adventures from the very first bite. Meanwhile, the attractive Marmande beefsteak tomato Tafury RZ stands out thanks to its irresistible taste and eye-catching appearance. These and many more examples of how Rijk Zwaan keeps you fresh and future-facing will be on display in Berlin.
