No Plastic

In April 2018 we started a "No Plastic" project, importing ginger from China.

We have combined the use of racks, cardboard boxes and recycle crates to meet our goal of not importing ginger in plastic boxes.

This resulted in 30720kg. of plastic being saved in 2018.

Following this, we have set a goal for 2019, saving an additional 50.000kg. of plastic.

What is new?

We have just been visiting our two suppliers of ginger in China - Jining Sunagro Trade Co and Weifang Jiahe.

Sylvia from the EMA'S Holland team joined in on the trip, which ended up being one of our best visits so far. 


Field pictures are from the fields in the Yishui Mountains, 4-6 hours drive from Anqui and Weifang. This is where Oliver and Jining Sunagro Trade Co has their production. The Ginger is kept up to one year in caves to keep the freshness. Caves in the mountains are almost empty from the 2019 crop.  New ginger is standing very nice and harvesting is due to start in 2-3 weeks. 1800 persons from the village are anxious to get started on the next round of harvesting. 


The valley next to this one is dedicated to organic production, which will be an option for the 2020 season if you are interested. 


The new 2020 crop should have cured (Developed skin) and can be exported end of December meaning arrivals start Febuary. 


Pictures to the right are all from the trip.
