The 56 employees at the Tyrolean fruit and vegetable processor Giner have their hands full. The men and women wash and cut 3000 kilograms of vegetables a week, wash and pack 8000 kilograms of lettuce and peel 2000 kilograms of onion, reports the Tiroler Tageszeitung. According to Andreas Giner, the turnover of his company increased from 6 to 7.5 million euros in a year.
"90 percent of our revenues are from with the preparation kitchen, 10 percent are from packed goods. This has very much to do with a lack of staff in many kitchens, but is also caused by a generational change among cooks," says the owner.Right: Owner Andreas Giner of the wholesaler of the same name / Image: Giner
