Sowing of Dutch carrots starts at the end of February. The fields are cultivated and sowing hills are milled. Next, the carrot seeds are planted with utmost precision. Consequently, the seeds are given time to grow into tasty carrots.


During the harvest, the carrots are stripped of their foliage and are subsequently stored in crates. Once off-land, these crates are immediately brought to conditioned storage.


After the carrots arrival at the storage facility, the temperature is gradually lowered to approximately 2 degrees Celsius. In order to maintain the quality of the carrots during the storage period, attention is also paid to the humidity.


Our Dutch carrots are Global Gap certified.
