The vegetables bags are back!


Biological and fairtrade

Choose organic fruit and veg thanks to the weekly supply of vegetable bags. 

Now you can make sure you always have organic products at home.

Students and staff can order vegetable bags online

Most vegetables and fruit are grown by ‘Kleibeek’, a company from Sint-Pauwels that produces organic vegetables and sells via short-chain sales. Fruit and vegetables that are not grown at Kleibeek, are delivered by farmers with the same philosophy, but always organical and fairtrade!


Looking for your daily amount of vitamins at work? Your office or department can easily order a bag of fruit or vegetables by mentioning your budgetcode on the order site. Don't forget to fill in the form 'interne verboeking' and to send it to veggiebags@uantwerp.be The Environmental office will take care of the payment.
