4Evergreen is growing through innovation and collaboration

4Evergreen invests in sustainability in several areas. Since 2005, it has engaged in organic cultivation for the American market. The greenhouses are heated using residual heat from industry. Innovating is also important at product level. In 2014, the red and yellow striped 'Enjoya' bell pepper was discovered and introduced to market. As a result of rapid developments an increasing number of highly skilled employees are being recruited. Robert Grootscholte, Managing Director of 4Evergreen, is curious about how this new generation views the developments in greenhouse horticulture, and participates in the Market Match project to find out. During this event, organised on 4 and 5 October, young people are challenged to come up with creative ideas to ensure a healthy future for the food sector.
