Responsibly Fresh is an initiative by the Association of Belgian Horticultural Cooperatives, VBT for short.
There are strict conditions associated with the use of the Responsibly Fresh label. This also applies to communication about it. Only producers and producers’ cooperatives which are making demonstrable efforts with regard to various aspects and criteria to do with sustainability can carry the label.
