Strawberries

A delicacy in any season

The strawberry is a sweet-tasting classic that will seduces almost any consumer. They carry their seeds on the outside and have a recognisable fresh green crown. We supply strawberries year-round from countries around the Mediterranean, and from the Netherlands thanks to cultivation in greenhouses. Our strawberries are available year-round, not just in summer.

Growing and harvesting

Handpicked

The strawberry belongs to the (large) rose family, just like the raspberry. Strawberry plants propagate through offshoots from the mother plant. These offshoots then form new plants. After propagation, the strawberry plants are planted. Depending on the climate, this is done in the open ground or in containers in the greenhouse.

Our strawberries are always carefully picked by hand. Each fruit goes straight from the plant into its consumer packaging. After the quality selection, the packaged strawberries are placed in transport boxes and immediately sent on their way to Berries Pride.

Packaging options

Also tailor-made

Strawberries are available in a variety of packaging, from 250 to 1000 grams. The most popular packaging is the EAT ME 500 gram cardboard punnet. These are sold per package of 8 x 500 grams. We can also offer customised packaging options in consultation with you.

We set various preconditions for our packaging, to optimally protect product quality and ensure a high appeal of the packaging.

We try to find the perfect combination for the changing market. We will soon be introducing a sustainable packaging line for all our berries. Stay informed via our newsletter or contact Elwin Boshoven for the possibilities.

Storage advice

For the tastiest strawberries
