In short about: Nature's Gold

The company is established by Peter and Anne-Marie van Dongen in 1986, with hydroponics cultivation.

Since 1986 the company has grown from 12 hectares of chicory roots to 220 hectares. In multiple phases the growing rooms are renovated and expanded as well as the storage capacity for the roots.

The last decade we’ve mainly invested in modernizing the company, to build a good foundation for our future, both on organizational and (growing) technical level. To be able to compete with other chicory growers and horticultural products in general, now and in the future, optimization of the production process continues to be an item with high priority.

In Zundert we focus on the supply of 5 kg packages in different boxes and crates. In Langeweg we focus on various types of small packaging: trays with stretchfoil, flow-packs on a tray, 1 kg bags, etc., etc.

Our sales are managed by BelOrta. BelOrta ensures the supplies to various retailers, exporters, wholesale businesses and green grocer’s shops.
