19 sept 2013 - European growers introduce ‘Green Heart’ label for sustainability and taste

Using the best techniques available for heating the greenhouse, reduce CO2 emissions and, if possible, growing without chemical crop protection. The whole horticultural sector is working on it, but the consumer is hardly aware of it. The Belgium Green Heart lable is meant to change that. "The efforts of the sector are made visible. If you buy a product with the label, you can be sure that it is healthy, tasty and sustainable." Growers all over are invited to join the movement.

The label, launched in Terneuzen last week, is an initiative of nursery Tomaholic, substrate supplier Peltracom and KBC Bank. The Green Heart stands for tasty, quality and sustainable. Maaike Perneel of Peltracom: "A product answering to all three of these prerequisites is something we want to give a face to. This benefits both the cultivation and the industry.”
