It’s never off-season.

All kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables are available around the whole year, because greenhouses and import from abroad suspend the natural harvest seasons. In order to meet the enormous needs and meet the quality demands of consumers, most vegetables and fruit need to be produced industrially.

Many of the fruits and vegetables offered in Germany are produced in Spain. Due to Spanish greenhouse cultivation and favorable climatic conditions we can buy tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers all year round. Only a few of us are aware of the problems that come with it. For example the working conditions and the environmental damage.

Although many thing have improved in recent years, there are still many issues that need to be addressed in the industrial mass production of fruits and vegetables.
