From the seed to the plate
Nunhems: Partner for tasty and convenient vegetable solutions

From February 3-5, Nunhems will present lifestyle vegetable concepts at Fruit Logistica in Berlin. By means of several product examples, the company will show how its innovative seed varieties, in combination with expertise from partners across the supply chain result in products that will delight consumers every day. A cook will prepare sample dishes so visitors can experience the unique taste and use options of vegetables grown from Nunhems seed.

Partnership - the key to success
“Success tastes better together” is the theme of Nunhems’ exhibition booth, and an integral part of the company’s market philosophy. By teaming up with growers, processors, wholesalers, importer/exporters, retailers and food service specialists, Nunhems strives to bridge the gap between agriculture and the consumer. This philosophy ensures a better understanding of consumer and industry demands, and help translate this knowledge into value-added seed varieties. “In everything we do for the food supply chain, our ultimate goal is to develop great seeds, deliver fantastic products and delight consumers,” explains Daniel Kretzschmar, Nunhems’ Downstream Marketing Manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Making it easy for you: Intense and Multileaf Intense is the ideal tomato for slicing, dicing and cutting in any other form without losing its shape and fresh appearance after cutting. The ability to retain its juice makes Intense the ideal tomato for sandwiches, salads, pizzas, wraps or other prepared meals eaten in or out of home. The seed for the award-winning Intense tomato is supplied by Nunhems, along with expert growing and marketing advice.

In the same vein Multileaf, a new salad concept, comes in a wide range of leaf shapes and colors that, together with improved shelf life, makes salad plates more attractive. A unique growing technology for Multileaf ensures high performance and cost- and resource efficient production.

Enjoy the taste: Magenta and Tropical
Magenta, a highly versatile cantaloupe melon, combines an excellent shelf life and uniform shape with a distinctive internal flesh color and excellent flavor. Thanks to its unique qualities, Magenta ranks among Europe and Africa’s top cantaloupe melons.

Tropical, a new cherry vine tomato, offers an average of 14 fruits per truss and an amazingly sweet taste. With a BRIX level above 9, Tropical is the sweetest cherry on the vine currently available.

Come and experience these and other vegetable concepts together with Nunhems at Fruit Logistica in Hall 1.2, Stand A-07.

In addition to Nunhems, Bayer CropScience will showcase its Food Chain Partnership concept in Hall 20, Stand C-13.
