The various types of packaging that washed carrots are sold in
At the ready
The Katwijk Washed carrots centre, grows a special sweet variety of carrot. It delivers these washed carrots to its partner, the Royal Vezet. This company processes and packages the washed carrots and ensures that they end up on Albert Heijn's shelves. Mart Ouwehand, therefore, does not have to engage in free trade and can focus on their customer. "We have been dealing with each other for more than ten years. Royal Vezet is a reliable partner and we ensure we are always standing at the ready for them", says Mart. This does not mean that there are no developments. He has, in consultation, taken over a part of Vezet's operations. "We now have, in conjunction with Vezet, a packaging line that washes, cleans and packages A-class carrots."
The Katwijk Washed carrots Centre offers washed carrots in different sizes. The cut carrots are sold in 150 gr, 300 gr en 500 gr packets. Weekly, the Katwijk Washed carrots Centre supplies a total of 150 000 kg of carrots to Vezet.
