Since the early 30’s, De Groot International BV has been supplying a wide range of fruits and vegetables (particulary specialized in overseas products) to a steadily increasing and loyal customer base of Europe’s largest retailers and wholesalers. In the Netherlands and Belgium, the company has four climate-controlled locations at its disposal, totalling 40,000 squared metres of floor space. Besides this the company also uses computer-controlled banana maturing rooms and packaging lines. Distribution and transport are done by their own logistics.
A worldwide representation in producing countries guarantees a continuous supply of the highest-quality products and in recent years De Groot International has grown to become a leading player in the fresh produce industry.
The base of the success of this innovative company is the flexibility within the organization and chain and the high quality requirements (certification BRC, IFS, Skal, RIK, AEO), in combination with a very strong commercial spirit.
In total De Groot employs approximately 180 people. The Third Generation of the De Groot Family is now managing the company with the same commitment and passion for the product, customers and colleagues as previous generations.
