Ten million heads of lettuce are hydroponically grown at Great Lakes Growers in Ohio, USA, every year: clean, fresh and delicious. “We like the Salanova lettuces for the uniformity, colour and simplicity of cultivation. Our collaboration with Rijk Zwaan is one of the single most important factors in our success,” says CEO and owner John Bonner. He explains why Salanova helps him to move ‘freshly forward’. ‘Freshly Forward, from Foundation to Future’ – this is the theme Rijk Zwaan has chosen for tackling today’s challenges, together with its partners.
