"With the new location in the north, Landgard will continue to build and expand its international purchasing, procurement and distribution expertise in the overseas business for its strategic trading partners in the first-hand procurement of goods while focusing on its own member companies. This path has already been successfully implemented by Landgard in markets such as Asia, Israel, Italy or Spain in the recent past and complements our strong regional and national portfolio in Germany,” said Armin Rehberg, CEO of Landgard eG.
In the ripening rooms of the new location, the latest, innovative technology, which has never been used anywhere in Europe, is used with a particularly efficient maturing process. The result is a much more uniform and even maturity quality of the fruits. At the same time, the maturing process is particularly sustainable and energy-efficient thanks to the new technology. In total, 23 banana ripening chambers, 6 large temperature-controlled refrigerated rooms and other mature fruit ripening rooms will be available at the new location in the south of Hamburg.
With the innovative ripening technology and the extensive storage capacities, Landgard has created optimal conditions for the targeted expansion of the overseas business. Beginning with the 2019 season, Landgard will market overseas items such as tropical fruits, citrus fruits, mangoes, avocados and bananas as well as pome and stone fruits, table grapes and berries to strategic customers as part of the cooperative orientation.
