Our four eyes principle

We use the  four eyes principle, assuring the flawlessness of our reports. 

Beyond quality control

We understand that if the quality of your fruit  is not up to your standards, you need more than some parameters and graphs about the condition and quality. You want to know your next steps. HDG implemented an unique advising module based on our 40 years experience and in depth knowledge studies. We give a strong estimation to identify causes or diseases and advise you about market value, repacking and storage. All in one, simple report.   

Jordy Fens

Quality Controller HDG

"What differs a good quality controller? Experience. You can only learn this job by investing time. Walk with experienced colleagues, read about new developments in research and most of all: train your senses. After sixteen years, I know directly after opening a box if it smells, looks and feels right.

I can tell right on the spot  if there was a  transport  problem  or a pre-hasvest issue. I identify the cause of the decay and if my client should repack, is able to store it or if there is any effect on its commercial value. It takes time to do so, but if your able to go beyond quality control, it gives a thrill to become the best in it.”
