Gratitude to gastronomy from the Agricultural Entrepreneur of 2020

On Thursday 17 September, Koppert Cress CEO Rob Baan received the prestigious prize, Agricultural Entrepreneur of the Year 2020. During his acceptance speech, Baan especially thanked the gastronomy, which did not forget the company and started using its products after the Corona peak.

The prize is an initiative of Boerderij, Groenten & Fruit en Veehouderij and partners ABN Amro and Hardeman Veenendaal. Agriculture and horticulture are the Dutch international showpiece and an example of growers worldwide. The annual prize, which is awarded for the 25th time this year, focuses on the entrepreneur. In the assessment, the jury pays attention to the entrepreneur's vision of the future, enthusiasm, integrity and innovative capacity. The jury made a pre-selection and nominates five companies, from which visitors to the website could vote for their favorite.

Rob Baan is the owner of Koppert Cress, a company that specializes in cresses, freshly sprouted plants with a multitude of flavors, which are particularly popular in professional kitchens. From Monster, the products go to (Michelin star) restaurants all over the world.
