Ardo first became active in the world of vegetables in the 1950s, growing and trading in vegetables at the family farm in Ardooie in Belgium. In 1977, Ardo established its first production unit in Belgium.
By continually expanding its production and sales units around Europe, Ardo has now become the European market leader for frozen fruit and vegetables, with sixteen production and packaging sites across eight countries.
Every year, the Ardo group grows, processes and sells 608,000 metric tons of end products in 58 countries, generating 636 million euros in revenue. From the far north to the deep south, Ardo is a name that is synonymous with excellent quality and service.
Ardo's product range includes a wide choice of frozen vegetables, vegetable mixes, vegetable preparations, fruit, herbs, pasta and rice. Continuous innovation, with input from customers, to develop new products and production methods guarantees successful partnerships.
Ardo sells to an extensive portfolio of customers operating in the catering, retail and industrial sectors. Offering flexibility, understanding the market and knowing the products are the core values of Ardo’s philosophy.
Van Oers International assisted Ardo in the successful acquisition of a Dutch company and helped it to optimise its corporate structure.
