I choose happiness

What makes me happy is working with natural elements every day. If things are going well with the tomatoes an with my family, I'm a happy man. My company is truly a family business. I've been an entrepreneur for 36 years – I took the business over from my father and I've expanded it since then. My family also works in the business, and they're all really committed.

"What makes me happy is getting to work with nature every day – with the weather, and of course also with the product. After spending a few years carrying out tests, last year I consciously made the decision to work with the Nunhems variety Extension. This variety produces the perfect tomatoes for the medium-sized vine tomato segment. The diameter and weight make them excellent for the trio mixes of yellow, orange, and red tomatoes we offer. Extension has a good early, middle, and late production. From the first fruit to the last, every fruit on a plant has the same quality.

"The contact with the Nunhems specialists is also very positive. It is very important to me that people are honest with me and that things work the way they say they will work. You can rely on that, and that way you work together to achieve success. My decision to work with Nunhems has had a positive effect on my business. I am pleased with the accurate cultivation information – that makes it a lot easier to grow good tomatoes. They live up to their promises. Clarity and honesty make me happy.
