Sustainability

As a family business of the 4th generation, we have become the market leader by looking to the future. We continue to make our sector more sustainable and efficient. We innovate by looking at water, energy, pesticides and raw materials in new ways. Always in the service of the quality of our onions of course. This way, we help our sector contribute to a sustainable future.

PLANETPROOF: FOR NATURE, ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE

On a large number of hectares, we grow with the independent Planetproof label. This quality certificate stands for sustainable cultivation whereby we pay extra attention to smart use of soil, water, energy, production and climate.

ROOTED IN QUALITY

Sustainability goes hand in hand with the pursuit of the highest quality. Even after the harvest. In the coming years, Wiskerke will invest in new sorting machines, with which we can make the sorting process more effective and quality-oriented.

ENERGY SAVING BY RESIDUAL HEAT

An ongoing project is the reuse of residual heat. Our business processes require a lot of energy. That is why we work together with neighbouring company Lamb Weston / Meijer. We use the residual heat from this potato processor for the drying process of our onions and as company heating. This way we save more than 900 tonnes of CO2 on an annual basis. That is equivalent to 50,000,000 trees!

TO 100% SUSTAINABLE

With the help of local initiatives and by seeking synergy benefits with other companies in accordance with national policy, you reach sustainability together. For example, we do this in transport and energy with 2600 m2 of solar panels. By using the container hub in Vlissingen - instead of the Rotterdam ports - we already save more than 10,000 kilometers on an annual basis!
