Dutch growers’ group Action Pearl Growers is to form a trading arm to export a range of fresh produce from the Netherlands.
TNI will begin operations from an office in De Lier on June 1. It will be headed up by managing director Frans van der Burg and sales director Karl Wronski.
Van der Burg said: “This unique combination of a growers’ association and trading company creates an ultra-short chain with optimum cost efficiency.”
Action Pearl Growers members grow nine different types of tomatoes over 140 hectares, 50 of which are under glass.
