The group grabbed hold of this opportunity and after a few successful seasons, the company was expanded in two steps to form a company that spans 25,1 hectares, where about 100 people work every day.
In 2013, Rainbow Growers Group, together with a group of shareholders, had the opportunity to buy Kwekerij Andijk.
Patrick used to be a construction contractor when he decided he was up for a new challenge. He started managing Kwekerij Andijk’s sorting facility and after a few seasons he was asked to start as the location manager. He’s most proud of the cooperation within his team and the results this has netted.
In Kwekerij Andijk’s three greenhouses, red bell peppers from the Alzamora breed are grown. They are grown on rock wool substrate and without artificial lighting. In two greenhouses, the traditional system is used. In the third, we use the V-system.
