The partners we work with
Growing the tastiest tomatoes is all about collaboration; collaboration between people and nature, collaboration between the specialists in our greenhouses, but also collaboration with other greenhouse growers and partners who are important to us. Without these partners, we would not be able to grow the delicious tomatoes that have enabled us to build up such an excellent reputation.
The Beekenkamp Group
Our collaboration with the Beekenkamp Group is important to us. Not only does Beekenkamp Plants supply us with top quality young tomato plants, but Beekenkamp Verpakkingen also supplies our harvesting crates.
Kwekerij RIMATO was set up in 2005 by brothers Richard and Marcel van der Knaap. We have been collaborating with RIMATO since 2016, when they started growing the Piccolo variety for us. They currently have an area of 14.6 hectares of Piccolo.
Gautier Semences is the seed breeder that supplies us with the seeds for the Piccolo variety we grow. Gautier is a family business in the south of France. The variety we use is partly responsible for the unique flavour of our tomatoes.
Temporary employment agencies
Day after day, a whole host of keen eyes and gentle hands nurture and pack our delicious tomatoes. Our team includes around 350-400 temporary staff, many of whom come from Eastern Europe. We are delighted that they want to help us grow the tastiest tomatoes in the world, so we work very closely with two temporary employment agencies, NL Jobs and Pro.Konak. Naturally, we want to treat these temporary staff with the respect they deserve. In 2005 Looye therefore acquired a stake in NL Jobs, enabling us to be closely involved in hiring the right people right from the early stage of the recruitment process.
