Most sustainable horticultural area in the Netherlands
The floor was then handed to Jenny Crone, of WarmCO2, which provides the residual heat and CO2 of the adjacent fertiliser plant and has thus perhaps developed the most sustainable horticultural area in the Netherlands. She believes that the advantage of family businesses is that they have the opportunity to be handed down to the next generation, and this makes them strong.

Third generation working at Sublimato growing location
"In August 2013, grandfather Geert van Adrichem Sr. set the first pole in the ground for the Sublimato Van Adrichem Nurseries in Westdorpe. In mid-January, the greenhouse was ready for the first tomato plants. In early April, the first box of vine tomatoes was harvested, and we are now proud of the progress achieved, the link made with Yara and the quality of our product which everyone could see at the opening day of our new, modern nursery without gas!" says Sjoerd van Adrichem, the third generation of Van Adrichem Nurseries, which also owns cultivation sites in De Lier and Steenbergen.Setting of the first pole in the ground, in late AugustAnd now.
Sublimato is not only the name of the new grower, but also the name of the tomatoes from Westdorpe. The brand stands for quality, fresh supply, almost organic cultivation and minimum environmental impact with maximum flavour. In Westdorpe, the Endeavor, amongst other varieties, is grown. The sales and marketing of these sustainably-grown tomatoes from 'Sublimato' is carried out through DOOR Partners, the sales subsidiary of the DOOR cooperative.
Cooperation is the key
The family Van Adrichem is very pleased with the good cooperation with all suppliers. It is precisely through this collaboration that the construction and commissioning of Sublimato has been possible in such a short time.
Following the announcement of the name for the site, attendees enjoyed a delicious barbecue.
