    The first two-three years things were really hard. We did not even know the cultivation techniques. Our relation with Rijk Zwaan Hellas, at that time known as Agrosystem, started from the beginning of our avocation with lettuces. I can remember the very first can that I bought myself from a local shop of agricultural supplies. Since then, we have a very close collaboration with Rijk Zwaan. The first years this collaboration was kind of technical support and from the moment that we got the know-how, we started together some excursions and visits abroad. There you encounter much bigger producers in terms of production and surface, with other players of the vegetable market and all these in-between a frame of continuous education offered by the side of Rijk Zwaan and from our side as it concerns our better preparation for a better result. Every year we create a plan of trials in accordance with Rijk Zwaan’s agronomists, in order to make the best decisions for the products we will uses the following year. Hence, we would summarize our collaboration in three words as trust, comprehension and support.
