Bio.Fru.Pro prioritizes quality and environmental protection:

Seasonal kickoff for regional organic tomatoes

The Organic Fruit Vegetable Producers Association announces the start of the harvest for domestic and regional tomatoes from controlled organic cultivation. Consumers can now purchase regional fresh tomatoes, marking the transition from imported goods to domestic fruit-vegetable production. This guarantees not only the best possible freshness, taste, and residue-free quality but also makes a significant contribution to climate protection, species conservation, and food security in our country.

For the members of Bio.Fru.Po, people, and nature are at the forefront of all economic thinking and actions. As entrepreneurs, they have set themselves the goal of preserving the environment on their doorstep, promoting local value chains, and supplying the public with fresh organic vegetables. Therefore, the decision to buy regional organic tomatoes goes far beyond taste and healthy eating.

Rudolf Dworschak, board member of Bio.Fru.Pro explains: "By purchasing our tomatoes, consumers directly support our daily efforts to promote local wildlife, insects, and plant life. Creating species-rich habitats in the form of flowering meadows, hedges, and small biotopes on our farm areas is practically in our DNA as organic growers. Climate protection is also more than just lip service for our members. The energy for our greenhouses already comes from over 90% renewable sources, such as biomass or geothermal energy."

In contrast to Spanish imported goods, regional organic tomatoes offer a transparent and secure production chain. This starts with occupational safety, fair pay, and accommodation for employees and does not stop at the strict association certification on-site. Thus, tomato yields could be maintained at a stable level even in the past climatically challenging season of 2023. "Especially in times of increasing water scarcity in the south, thanks to the most modern greenhouse technology and the highest professional standards, we can guarantee the resource-saving delivery of fresh organic tomatoes from April to November," assures managing director Tim Gro├če Lengerich.
