More fruit and vegetables for food banks thanks to donation by the Nature's Pride Foundation

The Nature's Pride Foundation made a donation to the
Groenten & Fruitbrigade (Fruit & Vegetable Brigade), which they used to purchase a compact lorry. This lorry will enable the Groenten & Fruitbrigade to pick up fruit and vegetables directly from donors and better plan logistics.

Willem van Prooijen, chairman of the Groenten & Fruitbrigade is enthusiastic: 'Nature's Pride is one of Groenten & Fruitbrigade's most loyal and important suppliers. They send us avocados and mangos every week. Our collaboration, which has been ongoing on for almost 2 years, is now getting an additional boost thanks to the Nature's Pride Foundation's financial support. With our own lorry we can organise the supply from suppliers more efficiently. Our volume will increase, but at lower logistic costs.' 

The Nature's Pride Foundation is also very pleased with the cooperation with Groenten & Fruitbrigade. Erik Molendijk, chairman of the Foundation: 'The Nature's Pride Foundation supports projects that contribute to a healthy lifestyle and favourable living environment. We support many projects in countries where our exotic fruit and vegetables come from. That's why it's wonderful to have an excellent initiative such as the Groente & Fruitbrigade here in our own country now'.

After selection for quality, the Groenten & Fruitbrigade delivers batches of fruit and vegetables to the distribution centres of Voedselbanken Nederland (Dutch Food Banks). As a result, the food packages for food bank customers now include more fresh, healthy products.
