Hazera’s radish challenge 2020

Great first “Radish Challenge 2020” with German, Austrian and Swiss customers in the USA and Mexico from 19th until 25th of January 2020.
During the five days of this exclusive study tour we offered our guests an intense, fun and interesting program. Some of the largest produce companies in two major agricultural states of the USA, California and Arizona were visited and the group also crossed the border to Mexico to visit radish growers there.
California is the most important vegetable production state in the USA and is producing more than half of the nations’ fresh fruits. This trip has given an insight in this market and in the way how environmental factors as droughts, wildfires and mudslides are handled.
Aim of our study tours is that sharing knowledge between companies worldwide will result in network, innovation, creativity and business opportunities.
