Sustainable business and responsible consumption

Together with four Albert Heijn employees with an assignment to produce ‘vlogs’, ICCO CFO Wim Hart visited the company AAA Growers in Nairobi. He wrote a blog about his trip: Sustainable business and responsible consumption.   

Blog- Tenderstem. I had never heard of it, but since I spent the last few days in Kenya, this vegetable will have my special attention further on.

Together with four Albert Heijn employees with an assignment to produce ‘vlogs’, I visited AAA Growers in Nairobi. AAA Growers is a farm with five locations in Kenya that cultivates 6000 tons of vegetables - such as red peppers (‘chillies’), haricot verts, peas – and fruit a year, and a few tons of flowers (mainly roses). The company exports part of his huge harvest to one of the biggest retailers in The Netherlands: Albert Heijn. Tenderstem (‘bimi’ in Dutch), the broccoli-like vegetable with a long stem and a smaller 'flower' is one of those export goods.
