GURKENPRINZ actively nurtures its partnerships with 15 chosen farmers in the local region and in eastern Austria. They form an important pillar of the company.
It is only a long-term and reliable partnership that enables sustainability and also offers assurance of quality. The close cooperation makes it possible to guarantee regional procurement security, traceability (seamless control from the producer of raw ingredients to the consumer), harvesting of fresh products (short processing chain) and originality.

- Höhere Bundeslehr- und Forschungsanstalt für Gartenbau Schönbrunn

Thus, in the medium term, it became possible to double the cultivation areas especially for peppers and chilli pepper crops, and to grow various special varieties such as Piri Piri, Kusburnu, Turunku Spiral, De Cayenne, Oranger and yellow cherry in the open field. Projects are also underway to reduce the use of chemical pesticides and to substitute them with beneficial organisms.
