Who we are and what we do
Who we are and what we do
We are a food company dedicated to vegetables. We partner up with farmers and growers all over the world to grow tasty and nutritious vegetables that thrive on native terroirs. Simply because we believe that good quality vegetables grow best if the plants feel at their best and benefit from natural resources: the soil, the climate and the environment.
Field Fresh Frozen Vegetables
After harvesting, we clean and prepare our veggies amidst the green fields they grown in. Simply because we are convinced that freshness, proximity and speed are the keys to the best quality frozen veggies in the world. That’s how our ’150-minute peas’ for instance – harvested, cleaned, prepared and frozen in under 150 minutes – delight consumers with their taste, bite and goodness. We call it our ‘Field Fresh Frozen Vegetables’ philosophy.
The world is our garden
That philosophy explains why we operate 3 state-of-the-art vegetable processing units around the world:
- Hesbayefrost (Geer, Belgium) where traditional vegetables are grown
- Monliz Portugal (Alpiarça, Portugal) where Mediterranean vegetables are grown
- Monliz Spain (Badajoz, Spain) where Mediterranean vegetables are grown and grilled or fried
We also partner up with farmers and growers around the world – from Chili to China – to supply us with unique, specialty vegetables. These partners are selected with the utmost care, to guarantee that they apply the same care for taste, quality and sustainability. That’s how we strive for the unique high quality of our vegetables – even for crops grown in the remotest areas of the world.
All Crop's activities are monitored from the headquarter located in Ooigem, Belgium:
