Fred: “I took over from my father, Henk, in the early 1990s. Since then we have really moved forward. The company moved from Schipluiden to Wervershoof, and from there to Andijk, its current location. We doubled our acreage every ten years. My son Jan has now joined the company. He is the third generation.”
Jan: “We recently started to grow Pina Colada, the fresh, full-bodied spray chrysanthemum. It is a pretty flower whose challenge is having to root the young plants ourselves. We have always done the rooting ourselves. The added value of doing it ourselves is that the quality is higher.
This desire for quality reflects the most important cornerstone of our company – excelling in growing one breed. The whole company is structured to offer the perfect Pina Colada to customers. Every decision we take contributes to this goal.”
Fred: “Our biggest drive is our passion for growing and continuously working to improve it. We look for opportunities every day to do things even better or more cleverly. Everything is geared to quality!”
