Where are we now
Growers United wants to make vegetables accessible to as many consumers as possible. You take good care of yourself if you eat healthy. Our vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals but low on calories, and can be eaten at any time of the day. Thanks to our research data, we know how we can convert consumers into shoppers who put vegetables on the menu more often. We also want to encourage young people to eat healthier.

Food boost challenge
It’s a sad but well-known fact that young people eat too little fruit and vegetables. To encourage young people between the ages of 12 and 20 to eat more fruit and vegetables, Growers United is joining the Dutch Food Boost Challenge: a collaboration with several educational institutions. As a partner in this initiative, we’re collecting data about young people, and challenging them to come up with initiatives that promote healthier diets.
