News in brief
Expanding our Fairtrade product range
Our Fairtrade tomatoes from sunny Tunisia are back! We’ve also added some new items to the product range. We now grow round tomatoes, both yellow and brown snack tomatoes, and yellow cherry tomatoes. Each and every one is exquisitely sweet and ripened beneath the Tunisian sun.
Yellow snack tomatoes
These yellow snack tomatoes have an oval shape and firm flesh. Their crunchy bite and exquisite sweet flavour make them the perfect snack on the go, or a colourful addition to a salad.
Weight: 10-12 g
Brix: 8 or higher
Brown snack tomatoes
These tomatoes stand out thanks to their unusual reddish-brown colour. The fruits are perfectly shaped, with an attractive shine. Extra sweet with a hint of tanginess, enjoy them on their own as a snack or add them to salads and oven dishes.
Weight: 14-15 g
Yellow cherry tomatoes
These cherry tomatoes stand out thanks to their striking colour. They have a fresh and slightly sweet flavour, and can add a dash of colour to any salad.
Weight: 12-14 g
This refreshing, firm tomato variety is a fruit vegetable and is one of the most popular products in Dutch horticulture and trade. These tomatoes can be used in all kinds of dishes. They are ideal for stir-frying and well-suited for soups as well as sauces.
Weight: 80-90 g, 90-100 g
Our Tomatogo snack concept was awarded the title ‘Best product of the year 2017 - 2018’ in the Potato, vegetable, and fruit category. The ‘Best product of the year’ prize is one of the biggest awards in the Netherlands, where the consumer vote is the deciding factor. 136 entrants vied for prizes in several categories. The Venlo-based Harvest House grower Wijnen Square Crops submitted Boosty Bites as a contender in the Potato, vegetable, and fruit category.
Tomatogo has been available in shops since the start of May. The concept won the prize for its innovative biodegradable packaging which makes it great on the go, but also for being a healthy snack which is quick and fun for kids and adults alike!

Valentine’s day is almost here! With this heart-shaped snack cucumber you can create a sweet surprise for your loved one! Harvest House growers Willy and Gert van Bussel, co-owners of Snack Products, developed this special cucumber. Achieved by carefully placing a heart-shaped casing around the cucumber just before the last few days of growth, they’ve created a real heart-shaped cucumber! Interested?
