Together with Greenbrothers, we founded the product and growers association Purple Pride in 1996, in which we have been working together in the field of cultivation ever since. With an annual harvest of more than 27 million kilos of aubergines, we are the largest aubergine growers association in Northwest Europe. Our growers work every day to grow the tastiest and best aubergines. We have a wide range of special varieties and invest in sustainable cultivation. That has made us the reliable and customer-oriented aubergine supplier for retail, catering and trade for years. Click below for more information and delicious recipes.
