“As Canadian growers scout Europe for a competitive edge, these hubs have grown immeasurably as connectors to horticultural technology. John and Cristina Hambly, owners of Gwillimdale Farms, Bradford, Ontario and their sales and plant operations manager, Quinton Woods, have travelled to Europe six times since 2011 to settle on new storage equipment.

These trade shows were the first window to several cooling systems, before travelling into the countryside to see storage facilities. Their quest took them to the northern town of Hardifort, France, not far from the Belgian border. That’s where Klim’Top Controls has its headquarters for harvesting and post-harvest equipment for box and bulk storage. The promotional literature promising improved pack-outs of produce has proven to be very accurate, says Woods.”
