Diversity in packaging
On the 1st of September 2018 we started at our second production location. Because of this this the production in Zundert can be further optimized and we can supply a wider range of packaging.

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.
Starting from season 2019-2020, there are 220 hectares of roots grown for us, on about 30 plots spread across the southwest of The Netherlands, Flevoland (NL), Belgium and the north of France.
On the location in Zundert there is a cold store for storage of about 5,200 boxes (2 m³) of chicory roots.
