"A lot of headwind over the last eight years"

Norfresh declared bankrupt

On Tuesday, August 16, the court of 's-Gravenhage declared fruit and vegetable trading company Norfresh from Poeldijk (Netherlands) bankrupt. "We were very close to an extrajudicial creditors proposal, but one of the creditors didn't want to wait for this and unfortunately pushed through bankruptcy," according to management.

Norfresh was founded in 1997 and the company has been located in a new building on the ABC estate in Poeldijk since 2007. "Over the last eight years we have had a lot of set backs. We had to deal with problem after problem," says Fred from the company.. "We had a lot of debtors that couldn't pay, varying from building renters to foreign clients, some as a result of the Russian boycott or crisis. There are no grant jars for our kind of company and it's difficult to compete with the larger growers unions."

He doesn't know what the future will look like. "I still have some cards up my sleeve. Last year, for instance, I was involved in international horticulture projects and a number of request have come from this corner, but I'm not ruling out a return to the trade. I have a lot of contacts in the branch. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have recently supported me and had understanding for the situation that we find ourselves in. It meant a lot to me."
