Maes Wilfried, Belgium, 2010


Wilfried and Myriam started their horticulture family business in the mid-‘80s. They soon specialised in the cultivation of alternative lettuce. Up to the year 2000, they delivered alternative lettuce to the Mechelse Veilingen. The collaboration ended in 2000 and they immediately started working together with the retail and the wholesale market. At that time, they also created their own labelling and packaging material: boxes and lettuce packaging bags.

In 2003, they managed to double their winter offer of alternative lettuce grown in greenhouses because of the construction of a second greenhouse. In 2009, they built an outdoor gutter system for the cultivation of multicolor lettuce with root soil. They also installed the floating system in their greenhouse in the summer of 2010.
