John van Marrewijk departs from Kwekerij de Wieringermeer

One year ago, John van Marrewijk, one of the founders of Kwekerij de Wieringermeer, indicated that he would be stepping down as commercial director of Kwekerij de Wieringermeer as of 1 January 2022. He will also resign as a shareholder.

John founded Kwekerij de Wieringermeer in 2005 together with Patrick Grootschoten and Daaf Steentjes. Partly under his leadership, Kwekerij de Wieringermeer has developed into a large-scale pepper cultivator where peppers are grown almost entirely with renewable energy.

Tunisia and pointed peppers
At Kwekerij de Wieringermeer, John's responsibilities included purchasing and energy. In addition to this, John has always fulfilled an important commercial role within the Harvest House cooperative in the role between growers and sellers. John will continue to perform the functions he has within Harvest House in 2022.

After retiring from Kwekerij de Wieringermeer, John will remain responsible for the cultivation company Rainbow Horticulture Tunisia, where peppers are grown on 10 hectares in Tunisia. He also remains a member of the board and shareholder of Rainbow Puntpaprika, which includes the cultivation companies Kwekerij het Westland and Kwekerij Powergrow and grows sweet peppers on 18 hectares.

John's positions at Kwekerij de Wieringermeer will be taken over by the current management team: Patrick Grootscholten, Daaf Steentjes, Peter Steentjes and Arco Vreugdenhil. In a press release, the management states that they 'greatly appreciate what John has achieved with and on behalf of Kwekerij de Wieringermeer'. They, therefore, thank John for his efforts and the results achieved and wish him every success in his future career.
