At the AGF (Dutch for potatoes, vegetables & fruit) Debate in the Zalmhuis in Rotterdam last week, Dutch organic specialist Eosta claimed the 2011 AGF Innovation Award in the Corporate Strategy category.

The company was rewarded for the consistent way in which it has promoted sustainability in its corporate strategy, including its attempts to make the growers visible on each product.

In addition, Eosta's managing director, Volkert Engelsman, was named 2010 AGF Man of the Year.

'We feel very honoured with this award,' said Mr Engelsman. 'Eosta’s core values are authenticity, transparency and sustainability, and these are expressed not only in our products and our relationships with clients and suppliers, but also within the company in the form of human resource management.'
