The new facility is located next to the existing facility and will be connected through two passages. The processing, including the loading dock, cooling cells and machinery, will also move to the new building. The space will be optimally utilized by introducing a double cultivation layer above the processing area. The old barn will make room for a new cutting robot and the (mechanical) spacing of the plants.

The Van der Harg brothers, Wouter and Pieter, took over the business from their father more than three years ago.
