Tomato grower Wim Vertommen of Den Overkant:“The people of Den Overkant and Hollandplant have been working together for a long time. Hollandplant has proved to be a reliable trading partner in good and in bad times.”
Wim: “The cooperation with Hollandplant works very well. We have been customer since the start (1995). I am satisfied with Hollandplant for three reasons. Firstly, they offer a good price-quality ratio and if there are any problems, these will be resolved. Secondly, they have a long term vision. Finally, they have proved a reliable trading partner all that time. Both in good as in bad times. We had clavibacter in 2007. We solved this problem together in a constructive way. We also share a lot of beautiful memories. I attended several study visits. These were very educational and fun.”
