Find out how we do this in just one minute:
Van Gelder is close with customers
Van Gelder’s goal is to be close with customers and to act as a partner. Together we build a valuable relationship and put potatoes, vegetables and fruit back on the map. We offer support with our product and season knowledge, but also help improve business operations by giving advice on how to buy in a smart way and how to improve margins by using (more) vegetables and fruit.
Our vision concerning fresh food
In collaboration with certified growers and suppliers around the world, we deliver fresh potatoes, vegetables and fruit. Together we have the task to make sure the big supply of products is healthy, fresh and of good quality. Because of that we challenge ourselves every day. Important to know is that we work with a lot of passion. Furthermore, our vision is based on three thoughts.
Fresh products, directly from the source
We have been doing increasingly more direct business with farmers and growers here and abroad. By having intensive contact with them we can offer even better products and make sure we can deliver them quickly. We can get the most out of our vegetables and fruit by taking the seasons into account.
Crazy about fresh!
Every day we work with the feeling of a grower who wants to see his work grow. With the passion of a greengrocer, who wants the best for his customers. With the belief of a chef, who expects high quality products for his guests. Every day we want to deliver the best fresh products.
Harvested today, served tomorrow
Through direct purchasing, efficient warehouse processes and logistics we make sure the turnover rate is high. Because of this the products go from the land to the customers as fast as possible. This way our products are very fresh. This means that if it is ordered in the evening, it will be delivered the next morning.
