The Grower Files: Ulrich Osterloh and Priva

“WIDE RANGE AND TOP-QUALITY STRAWBERRIES MAKE OSTERLOH THE PARTNER OF CHOICE FOR LARGE RETAILERS”

The Grower Files > Erdbeerhof Osterloh's Ulrich Osterloh on internationalisation

His passion is clear: he wants to be the best strawberry producer in Germany, or better still, in all of Europe. Ulrich Osterloh is not merely an expert in his field; he genuinely lives and breathes strawberries. After studying agriculture, he started growing strawberries in 1983 in Visbek, Germany; the place where multiple generations of his ancestors have lived for a thousand years. His business, Erdbeerhof Osterloh, grows strawberries on more than 250 ha of land. To keep the soil in top condition, Osterloh rotates his outdoor crop with marigold and grain. A noticeable development is the switch to covered crops: aside from a modest 0.5 ha greenhouse, production in modern plastic tunnels is set to expand to over 10 ha this year.
