CombiVliet Looks Forward to 'Kom in de Kas'

Despite virus challenges, Dutch tomato greenhouse opens doors for Kom in de Kas

On Saturday, April 6th, CombiVliet's NoordVliet location will open its doors for the "Kom in de Kas" event. This is quite the unique location, considering the strict safety and hygiene regulations in tomato cultivation.

"It makes up for a great opportunity to visit that day. The facility will be made public-ready, ensuring no risks in terms of safety and hygiene. We're doing this for this special occasion, just once. Afterwards, we'll thoroughly clean everything, so we can return to work the next business day without any risks. But we want to show this wonderful company to the general public at least once. There's so much happening, and you really can't see it from the outside. Once you're inside, a world opens up. I've never seen anyone who wasn't positively surprised," says CombiVliet CEO Roy van Vliet.

"We've laid out a route for people so they can see the entire company. There are also various companies with a booth that day, either as our suppliers or connected to us in some other way. Visitors enter through the Energy Center where Ennatuurlijk, CHP, and ECW are located. Then they move through the water technology room to the corridor where the technical service is with technical gadgets from horticulture. Additionally, NL Jobs, Koppert, Van Iperen, Source, and Foodfellows will be present with soup made from our own tomatoes."

"Then, people can move to the greenhouse to take a look at a sectioned-off part and afterwards head to the cafeteria for coffee/tea with some treats (proceeds go to charity). The route then continues to the packaging hall and back towards the exit where we've set up a market with tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers for people to buy. Everywhere, we have staff available to provide explanations and answer questions. So, it's going to be a busy day where the public can really see what we do on a daily basis," says NoordVliet's Labor Manager Bas van Steenpaal.

The opening hours are from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The address is Tussenweg 3 in Middenmeer.
