Mission

We care, travel, train, improve, know, move, propose, adjust - everything we do, we do it to get the right solution for you.

Who we are

All of us at AgroCell, as a 1-MCP and post-harvest specialist, focus our resources on finding the best possible solutions for the post-harvest preservation of fruits, vegetables and flowers.

The "How can I...” is what our driving force is, in particular: "How can I better maintain my products?” "How can I improve their shelf life?” "How can I cultivate better to maintain better?” "How can I better monitor my products during maintenance?”

We listen to our customers, our partners and our suppliers every day so as to inspire ourselves with new ideas for products and services that will create new opportunities for all of us.

Our philosophy is to address problems as challenges. Appropriate and two-way communication is the key to us for successful cooperation. We are not only concerned with consulting services to achieve positive results, but we want to know the problems, failures and aim to be on target.

We act as a bridge to transfer know-how as we travel year round, acquiring knowledge to improve our skills, while at the same time remain in contact with our partners in several countries abroad. As a team, we see, learn and share with our customers to help them better understand what's happening in our common field.
