Who is Nic van Roosmalen; a very big tomato lover, connoisseur and specialist with a passion for the growth of the plant, the process and the organization. A very practical (out of the box) thinking person, who likes to coach, support and advise people to get the best out of themselves and out of the company.
Since 1995 I have been working as an advisor in fruit-bearing warm vegetable crops. Over the years I have started to specialize more and more, now I can truly call myself a specialist in the cultivation and production of tomatoes. I owe this specialization partly to the 10 years of experience as operational director at one of the world's largest tomato company.
To get the advice even stronger and better substantiated, I have entered into a partnership with a number of prominent advisers, who have more than earned their spurs in greenhouse horticulture. The collaboration with Ferry Klap from Horti Advies B.V., Eric de Winter from WinGrow Tuinbouwadvies B.V. and Bas Vet Teeltadvies B.V., will consist of sharing technical knowledge and development, but also supervising projects in which several crop advisers from our team will be involved in one and the same project. After all, everyone has their own expertise.
