Farming cauliflower is a laborious process. Cauliflower seeds are grown into cauliflower plants. The cauliflower plants are subsequently planted in open soil. Summer cauliflower is planted mid-February, and Winter cauliflower in August. During the growth process, the plants receive the right care, like preventing exposure to an abundance of sunlight.


Harvesting of cauliflower takes place from May until December. The cauliflower is cut on the land and stored in crates. These crates are taken to storage.


Straight after cutting on the land, the crates of cauliflower are brought to conditioned storage. There, they are stored and kept at the right temperature and humidity. This process is constantly measured and adjusted to ensure the best quality cauliflower.
