Imperator, a sweet and healthy snack
Consumers are increasingly looking for healthy convenience-foods. The popularity of vegetable snacks or so called baby carrots fits perfectly into this trend. A lovely bite directly from the refrigerator.
We preferably work with the variety imperator. This carrot has a bright, sweet taste and is orange colored. The crispy bite provides a nice mouth-feel.
This much wanted product is available throughout the year. We grow the imperator mainly in Brabant and in Zeeland, but also in Germany and South Europe. From mid June until the end of December, imperator comes straight from the soil. Subsequently this vegetable can be cultivated in straw until the end of April or the carrot comes out of refrigeration. From May to June we import this carrot from abroad.
