Every year, in about week 36/37, Willem Dijk waits for his new European mandarins to arrive in the Netherlands. Sometimes, it is a week earlier, sometimes a week later. "There are sufficient overseas alternatives for mandarins. Despite this, there is a high demand for European mandarins. This week, we received our first truckload of Filosofo Satsuma/Iwasaki premium mandarins", says Willem.
Willem Dijk AGF BV will again be selling Filosofo citrus in the Benelux this season. "We are a week later this season. The Aranda family business only loads the fruit when it is good and ready. This company sorts the top-quality fruit under the Filosofo label."
"This is a great addition to the citrus assortment; even though there is a large supply of overseas mandarins. In a few weeks, we will be able to supply the entire Filosofo package. It has begun," concludes Willem.
