Paul-Wouter den Ouden strengthens team Rola Fresh

Paul-Wouter den Ouden joined importer and exporter Rola Fresh on the 1st of October. “With the arrival of Paul-Wouter, we are now at full capacity to provide our customers with the best sweet potatoes, imported greenhouse vegetables and French specialty potatoes.” said Robert Voskamp.

Paul-Wouter and Robert know each other well, they worked together for almost 8 years at their previous employer and before that they had worked together for many years as a customer and supplier. You can say that they work well together. “I am very happy and proud of the arrival of Paul-Wouter. I speak from experience that we are a good team and look forward to making Rola Fresh a great success together,” said Robert.

But what exactly is the success of the collaboration? Paul-Wouter explains “We are both hard workers, open and honest and aim for a high level of service. We click well and are on the same page when it comes to our vision and way of working. So it is really an amazing challenge to build Rola Fresh together and turn it into a successful company.”

Background of Paul-Wouter
Just like with Robert, Paul-Wouter also has “fresh produce blood” flowing through his veins. As a 3-year-old boy he could be found on a pallet of cucumbers when he went to the auction with his father. Even though his father advised him to study for a different trade, Paul-Wouter ended up in the fruit and vegetable sector at a young age.  What should have been a gap year before starting his new officer training, has now become more than 20 years of experience in the fresh produce industry.

“It's just a really fun industry to work in, everyone needs vegetables and it's super healthy. In addition, no day is ever the same and that is exactly what I like very much. Even after more than 20 years, I still experience that, especially this year with the energy challenge that the industry is facing.”

New location
From 1 October, the Rola Fresh office can be found at Leehove 117 in De Lier. A beautiful location just 2 minutes away from the Cool Control loading location in Maasdijk. This allows the team to switch easily and keep track of the quality of the products.
