The asparagus season has kicked off at ZON fruit & vegetables
On February 16, the first greenhouse asparagus of the season were auctioned in front of the clock of ZON fruit & vegetables.
The asparagus come from GVP B.V. from Maasbree. The first box was bought by P. Smets & Zn. from Geleen. In addition, Postuma AGF, Enes B.V., Bidi and Ketelaar Groenten en Fruit donated a nice amount to Giro 555 for the victims of the earthquake disaster in Turkey and Syria.The total proceeds are 3,535.00 euros and because ZON then doubles this proceeds, the final amount for Giro 555 is no less than 7,070.00 euros.
Rick Mengers Product Manager at ZON personally visited Loek Smets to hand over the box of asparagus.
