Growing with respect for all food safety requirements
Consumers impose strict requirements when it comes to the safety of their food. This is why we inspect important aspects of the sweet peppers throughout their growth as well as when they are being processed. Firstly in terms of crop protection. What if we discover a disease or an infestation in the crop? Well, we use biological protection, control with the help of natural enemies. Chemical crop protection agents have almost completely disappeared from Hoogweg Sweet Pepper Growers’ greenhouses as a result of the expanding range of natural controls.
The sooner we detect an infestation, the greater the chance that it can be controlled with natural resources. By conducting intensive inspections for infestations we are able to act quickly to eradicate them naturally. This significantly reduces the need to rectify them with additional methods.
