Our company

European Fruit Cooperation (EFC) was set up as a cooperative venture between Coöperatie Koninklijke Fruitmasters U.A. in the Netherlands, WOG (Württembergische Obstgenossenschaft) Raiffeisen e.G. in South Germany and BelOrta in Belgium.

The society works for approximately 920 fruit producers who together represent a yearly turnover of EUR 364 millions.

EFC, as a cooperative company, was founded in 2002 in order to provide an adequate answer to the increasing internationalisation of the fruit trade.

The principal objectives of EFC are the acquisition and the introduction of new varieties of fruit through a chain-strategy, in which EFC tries to manage the whole process from the development of a variety to its consumption, the exchange of (commercial) information between the three partners and the worldwide organisation of the cultivation of trees and starting material for the new varieties.
In 2005, EFC acquired the worldwide licensing rights for two apples varieties, namely Nicoter cov and Nicogreen cov, which are being marketed as a concept variety.

From 2014 on, EFC cv and her subsidiary GKE N.V. have the worldwide rights of the variety Cepuna COV.


EFC is a cooperative company. EFC was established in 2002 and is based in Borgloon, Belgium.
The following production organisations each hold one third of the shares in EFC.

N.V. Greenstar Kanzi Europe (GKE), a subsidiary of EFC, organises the production and marketing of the fruit of the Nicoter and Nicogreen varieties worldwide.

Top quality fruit of these varieties is marketed under the trademark names Kanzi®Greenstar® and Migo®.
