FRESH VEGETABLES – FROM FARM TO PLATE
Take the alphabets from A to Z, and you will find at least one vegetable for each. From Asparagus to Zucchini, from Beetroot to Yam and from Carrot to Watercress, almost every vegetable finds its way to the food table, bringing us the necessary nutrition, energy and fibre that’s essential for a healthy life.
Around the world, the total amount of vegetables harvested is more than one billion metric tons per year. Over three quarters of the production volume is generated in Asia. Tomatoes are by far the leading vegetable worldwide, based on production volume.
Given that in most parts of the world, vegetables are part of at least two meals of the day, growing vegetables is not just a source of livelihood but a profitable occupation as well. In Vegetable Wholesale, profitability depends on various factors such as quality, varied selection of produce and efficient operations. Larger Vegetable Suppliers benefit from economies of scale in purchasing and transportation. Smaller companies may compete by specializing in certain products, or by focusing on a geographical area.
