Bayer CropScience signed a global cooperation agreement with The Greenery B.V. of the Netherlands, an international sales organization specializing in vegetables and fruit. The aim of this agreement is to further expand food chain partnership projects on a global scale.
Food chain partnership projects pursue the sustainable production of high-quality fruit and vegetables, and support producers to implement optimized crop protection programs. Producers, food suppliers, and retailers, as partners within these food chain partnership projects, benefit alike.
Bayer CropScience and The Greenery already collaborate on more than 30 projects in Latin and Central America as well as in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Based on these experiences in individual countries, both companies have decided to further expand their collaboration.
“This agreement marks a milestone in our collaboration “, said Dr. Rüdiger Scheitza, member of the Board of Management of Bayer CropScience AG and responsible for Portfolio Management, at the signing ceremony in Monheim.
“This continued cooperation shows the dedication of our partners and underlines our commitment to increasing the production of fruit and vegetables in a sustainable manner” explained Mr. Philip Smits, CEO of The Greenery.
