Coöperatie Coforta is a Dutch agricultural cooperative consisting of 500 fruit and vegetable growers. The cooperative supplies its products to supermarkets, caterers and wholesalers through its wholly-owned subsidiary The Greenery, an international sales and marketing organisation for fresh fruit and vegetables. The company also holds a leading retail market position in the Dutch mushroom market, processing over 700 tons of mushrooms every week. The Greenery is among the leading suppliers for hard and soft fruit, open field and greenhouse vegetables in the Netherlands. Through its organic branch Naturelle, the company supplies a year-round range of organic fruits, vegetables and mushrooms.
Coöperatie Coforta is active in the agricultural products and commodities, performing below average compared to its peers in the segment. The company ranks at the bottom of the pack in social inclusion and governance and strategy, demonstrating a lack of commitments on human rights and workers’ rights. The company performs below average in environment, showing an opportunity to improve by setting targets on key topics such as GHG emissions, water use and soil health. In nutrition, the company is among the top 15 companies mostly due to its healthy food portfolio and its strong performance on food safety. However, it fails to define its contributions to support availability, accessibility and affordability of healthy foods, thus lagging behind its peers.
