Ardo works together with over 3 500 farmers to grow 87 crops on 49 000 ha in 9 countries.
We produce frozen vegetables that are grown with the maximum respect for nature and the environment. Therefore we work pro-actively towards more sustainable agricultural production methods, whilst at the same time remaining commercially competitive. We strive to minimize the impact of our growing and processing activities on the environment, and we ensure at the same time the personal safety and life quality of our farmers and employees.
This approach is summarized in our MIMOSA-program, Minimum Impact with Maximum Output Sustainable Agriculture.
Our aim is to deliver our ingredients in the same state that Mother Nature intended: fresh, nutritious and picked at peak ripeness in the crop’s natural season.
Applying integrated crop management and production techniques, and focusing on quality assurance and high aesthetic standards, we control the product from seed to customer.
We installed in our factories new state-of-the-art packing lines with recent technology for metal detection, colour, shape and density sorting.
We employ 53 agronomists and 148 technicians who work 24/7 to ensure that our products arrive at your site in specification and to the highest quality standard.
Our agricultural departments look after crops so they can be supplied to our processing sites. There, our quality team checks the materials, production processes, product selection and packaging. Our quality managers play an active role at all production stages. They accompany our agronomists on field visits and are trained in our factories' production processes. Their efforts help build customers' confidence while adding value to our reputation through delivering the necessary quality that we are renowned for.
We aim to create products that meet the highest safety and quality standards. Our production sites are certified in accordance with internationally recognised standards (BRC/IFS), and also comply with strict food safety and HACCP standards.
