Our farmers

Our passion is to search the world looking for exotic products we think you would like to discover. As you might guess, our farmers play an important part in this. We have a close relationship with them: we see them as members of our family. Our farmers grow their products with passion and skill. So join us as we take you into their world and tell you the story behind our products.

Social sustainability is our priority. We want to feel good with our suppliers, and they must respect all social and food safety requirements. If they need help, we will support them in getting it right. We always work according to European standards. Farmers and employees receive fair prices and wages because fairness is one of our core values. We also think it is important that our farmers’ products receive the attention they deserve. For example, we regularly do joint promotions with farmers.

The Yex Family

Yex strongly believes in shortening chains. Due to extensive cooperation with farmers, it is possible to be a specialist in all aspects involved in the cultivation, harvesting, packaging, transport and marketing of products. For that reason, Yex has joined forces with farmers for a number of important products in the form of joint ventures from our parent company Farmhouse International.

In such a strategic partnership, we optimally benefit from each other’s strength and expertise. This results in certainty in product range and efficient service for the customer. We invest together in further product and market development, and we offer our customers availability all year-round.

This allows our customers to buy directly from the farmer, while the farmer can focus on their core task: growing beautiful products. Together we ensure access to the European market. We support each other in all aspects of marketing, logistics, quality control and sustainability.
