There is a significant shortage of quality housing for international employees in the horticultural sector. 4Evergreen, a specialist in sustainably grown peppers, is working hard to find a solution to this.
In April, they started the construction of 20 studios at the Zoekweg in Steenbergen. A total of 40 people can live here, 2 per studio. Each studio has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, and outdoor terrace. The first residents will be able to move in after the summer.
Four studios will also be built at Kapittelland in Hoek van Holland in May. Each studio can accommodate 2 - 3 people. It is expected that these complete studios will be habitable in the fall.
"Building housing is quite difficult due to legislation and municipal regulations. However, we will continue to fight and do everything we can to realize more housing for our employees in the coming years," said Robert Grootscholte, Managing Director 4Evergeen. "We like to invest in our people. Many of our employees come from outside the Netherlands and need quality accommodation with sufficient living space and privacy. Due to the housing shortage, we are fully engaged in realizing housing."
