Everything started at a Champions League game that I attended as a mere fan in the English city, where we began to forge the sale of one of our star products, our hybrid grass, to Belgium’s Oud-Heverlee Leuven.

20 trucks with rolls measuring 1.20 cm wide were transported at a temperature of 3 degrees Celsius for the 1,600 km journey from the Avila nursery to the city of Leuven.

The installation of the OHL training field was finished in three days, with rolls that were 1.20 cm wide and 11 cm long.

From the time they were taken out of the truck until the installation, the rolls weren’t in the trucks for more than 48 hours.
