Tom Antens, Commercial Director says: “We are proud to see the trust and collaboration between the HM.CLAUSE teams and our local partners is growing even stronger through the Jordan MENA Field Days. This is a true reflection of our “Global Reach, Local Touch” philosophy. Our ambitions for the MENA region are high and we are allocating all the needed human and capital resources to achieve our long-term objectives. HM.CLAUSE already has a very good reputation in the region, especially for melon and pepper, with a strong growth in Beit Alpha cucumber. Besides that, we expect substantial developments in determinate tomato, watermelon and squash in the coming years. Showcasing the newest genetics and innovations to our partners is the first step in expanding our range of vegetable varieties adapted to the region for the benefit of the farmers and the consumers.
