Westburg's snack tomato segment consists of varieties selected on taste, quality, color and shelf life.
The cultivation is supported by computer data for optimal cultivation control. Good plant health is important, in addition to correct climate control and application of the nutrient water, we use natural control agents against diseases and pests. We use liquid CO2 for sustainable cultivation and in 2021 we started using residual heat to heat the greenhouses.
The snack tomatoes are processed in the packaging hall on seven different packaging lines. The tomatoes are packed in transparent buckets, trays and bags, as well as in cardboard trays.
The latest packaging line, a top seal packaging, was taken into use in 2021 to reduce plastic.
Our packaging is made from circular recycled plastic as much as possible.

Together with other growers Westburg aims to get local grown products as a priority for the consumer.
