Transitioning from bedding plants to greenhouse vegetables was big step
Van Wingerden Greenhouses joins BC Hot House Foods
Mike Van Wingerden started Van Wingerden Greenhouses in the 1980’s. His passion for the business and growing knowledge came from a long family history of being in the greenhouse business in Holland and the US. Van Wingerden’s main focus has been in greenhouse floral until recently when he found the need to diversify to create a more sustainable and stronger business for his family. The Van Wingerden family consists of 11 children and 6 grandchildren, many of whom work alongside one another in the greenhouses.
‘Transitioning to greenhouse vegetables was a big step for us. Having the majority of our experience in bedding and young plant starts, we needed to quickly learn about food production and good food handling practices. BCHH was with us from the beginning, giving us advice and helping us with any problems we faced which has been very important in the development and success of our cucumber division,’ states Tom Van Wingerden.
‘We are thrilled to be working with the Van Wingerden team and to be able to offer our customers in the USA product grown, packed and shipped from the United States,’ comments Mike Reed, President BCHH.
