On 1 November, Jan Opschoor became the managing director at Prominent while also remaining the managing director at DOOR. Prominent is a cooperative made up of 29 tomato growers with a total of 365 hectares of tomato cultivation areas. Prominent's commercial activities have been handled by DOOR since this organisation was founded.

Jan Opschoor: 'Having a single executive board responsible for management will shorten the lines of communication and improve efficiency. I would also like to join the other two board members, the employees and the growers in building on a strong organisation that already exists.'

Under DOOR, five brands have joined their sales and marketing services: Prominent as a tomato specialist, Purple Pride (aubergines), Green Diamonds (cucumbers), and PapriCo and Sweetpoint (bell and sweet pointed peppers). This appointment will have no effect on the other four brands.
