Managing the chain
The world of fresh fruits and vegetables is always in motion. Today's consumers are demanding. They only want the highest quality of fresh produce, every day and all year long. And they want to know the origin. How it is grown and who the grower is.
High expectations from consumers, buyers and, as a result, from suppliers. We strive to meet those expectations.
Managing the chain
Every day we deliver what is demanded by our customers. By caring for the planet we live on, and also with a strong vision. That is why it’s important to sometimes take a step back from our day-to-day activities and get an overview of the whole chain. So we can really understand all the changes and developments in our world. And discover how we can improve each time again.
Our goal is to bring the freshest products from the fields to the customers using the optimum route. To achieve this, we go beyond the traditional role of distributor, importer or exporter. We serve as the manager of the entire chain.
Cooperation is key
Cooperation is key. Maintaining intensive partnerships with our growers, co-packers and logistics partners in the chain enables us to offer our buyers guarantees and above all the certainty of the very best fresh products throughout the year.
For Levarht cooperation means a circle of trust, a circle in which we all play a part. And together we can fulfil our promise to the market. That promise is ‘Levarht, Your Source To Freshness’.
Your Source To Freshness is a promise that goes beyond the sum of these four words; it symbolises and reflects Levarht’s daily commitment.
Ever since Levarht was established in 1933, we have been looking for ways to strengthen our relationships with our growers and our customers. The search for new opportunities and markets is in our genes. Together with more than 250 co-workers in Holland, Belgium, New Zealand, Mexico and Costa Rica and our growers all over the world, we are dedicated to build long-lasting partnerships in which mutual success is key.
Our head office, distribution centre and packing facility are located in Aalsmeer in Holland, five kilometres south of Schiphol Amsterdam Airport. We grow peppers and tomatoes in our own greenhouses in Mexico and New Zeeland and melons in Costa Rica, where we have several plantations covering 700 hectares in total.
Together with our growers of the Dutch growing cooperation Van Nature and our growers worldwide, we can provide year round the freshest produce.
That is why we are proud to say: Levarht – Your Source To Freshness
