Rocket launch in France

This is rocket science on a potato farm.

How do farmers deliver potatoes without sprouts 40 weeks after harvesting, while in your kitchen potatoes sprout within 1 or 2 weeks? With our fogging machines we help farmers to keep potatoes free of sprouts, to avoid weight loss and to avoid waste of food. The fog in the picture is made from orange oil. This biological product keeps potatoes free of sprouts.

For science lovers:
The dropletsize range of the fog is between 1 to 10 micrometer in diameter. 1 potato only needs 8,5 microliter of orange oil to avoid sprouting for a few weeks.
In volume: 8,5 microliter is about the size of 1 sugar grain. This 8,5 microliter is devided in roughly 1 billion dropplets by our fogging machines !

UPL invited us to test the droplet size of our machines in combination with their orange oil product Argos. The measurements have been done by an independent research team of CERTAM.
The first results confirmed what we already measured in our own test facility: Fogging is a very efficient way to help farmers to avoid food waste.
A special thanks to  Marc Bonnet.

New innovation for poultry breeders and veterinarians.

Poultry farms have a new cordless sprayer available for vaccination.

For many years veterinarians and farmers are looking for a portable, light weight and cordless sprayer that is easy to use, without the inconvenience of extension cables.

The FVX-sprayer has a built-in fan and combines the advantages of ULV fogging machines with a larger distance range and less wetting of birds and the advantages of cordless battery backpack sprayers.

Vaccination tests have been done at poultry farms to measure if the FVX-sprayer can be the alternative light weight, cordless sprayer that farmers and veterinarians are looking for. Curious about the FVX-Sprayer?
The results of the tests can be found in the following whitepaper.

Viv Europe 2022

34 Years ago, my father, a poultry farmer, visited the VIV in Utrecht, an exhibition for poultry and livestock industry.
On the exhibition he saw a machine that could solve his problem with disinfection of his poultry houses. The contact he made on the VIV, was the start as a distributor of #Pulsfog Fogging machines and resulted into the company we have today, because he worked hard and was prepared to go the extra mile for his customers.

Now 34 years later his company is continued by his 3 sons, with 17 people, serving yearly over 1000 customers in more than 45 countries. It changed our lives. Visit us this week, we are looking for distributors, maybe we can help to change your life.

PotatoEurope Netherlands outdoor exhibition 1-2 September 2021 to be cancelled


Due to the current developments in regard to the coronavirus pandemic in the Netherlands and the associated lack of official approval from Dutch authorities to hold the event, PotatoEurope 2021, an outdoor exhibition on 25 hectares, scheduled for 1-2 September 2021 in Flevoland, Netherlands, has been cancelled. The decision to cancel the event, which takes place in the Netherlands every four years, was made following in-depth discussions between the organizer DLG Benelux and exhibitors.

“We very much regret that PotatoEurope Netherlands 2021 cannot take place as planned, despite thorough professional preparation as well as strong support on the part of the industry. In view of the ongoing uncertainty in the Netherlands surrounding the overall situation of the pandemic and the resulting lack of official approval, the required conditions for holding PotatoEurope 2021 have, unfortunately, not been met. As a consequence, we have made the decision, in close coordination with our exhibitors, that PotatoEurope Netherlands will not take place on 1-2 September 2021 as planned,” said Kuno Jacobs, Managing Director, DLG Benelux.

“Last month in June, several positive signals indicated that the situation in the Netherlands seemed to be progressing well, which resulted in the lifting of various restrictions associated with the pandemic. Unfortunately, it did not turn out as hoped,” added Jacobs. Organised by DLG Benelux, PotatoEurope Netherlands was scheduled to take place at the at the location of Wageningen University & Research (WUR), Field crops in Lelystad. Field work constitutes a major part of the outdoor exhibition, which also includes trial plots and outdoor exhibition tents.
The next edition of PotatoEurope will take place on 7 & 8 September 2022 in Bockerode, Germany.

Mini interview with our Intern Jorik

Jorik recently successfully completed his graduation internship. We asked him what his experiences with us were.

Jorik, stage afgerond

Why did you choose for Frans Veugen Bedrijfshygiëne?
School provided us with a list of companies where we could do an internship. I ‘investigated’ the companies i liked; what do they do? What kind of activities? I used this information to make my choice. I asked Frans Veugen for an interview and was given a tour.

How dit you experience this internship?
Fun and instructive. They let you experience a lot, you are not treated as an intern, yet you are treated like an intern. You get to work along just like any other employee but you get the time/space to investigate everything yourself. Here you don’t get standard intern chores (cleaning, getting coffee etc.).

What did you like to do most?
Mini projects. Also I have developed a control cabinet fot testing CDS.
Also this was my graduate project.

What was most instructive? What did you learn the most from?
At the beginning of the internship period, I made a lot of control cabinets.
That was a nice build-up to my school assignment/project.

Do you have tips to share for others?
Just do your best! Take interest in the tasks you want to learn. You can experience so much here and master so many tasks.


Telers, word niet virusmoe

Last week a Dutch publication came online: Telers, word niet virusmoe.

The tomatovirus, ToBRFV, is still relevant today. Disinfection is important; we see an increase in area disinfection. Not only in the greenhouse but also in the spaces outside the greenhouse, such as corridors. With a good focus and periodic disinfection we want to achieve a healthy sector.



Photos of photo club Nederweert

Last week, two members of the Nederweert Photography Club came to our company to do an architectural shoot. We would like to share some nice snapshots with you!



Open Days were a great succes

We would like to thank every visitor of our open days for their presence and presents. We received a lot of positive reactions and we had a great time ourselves. Spread over 2 days we hosted 600 guests from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and even from Russia and Israel.

We hope to see you soon at our company!


Surprise party for owners Frans Veugen Bedrijfshygiëne

Recently we had a surprise party to celebrate our move into the new building. The owners were lured out of the building using a ruse, while family, staff and friends gathered in the new building. Then we celebrated with champagne, gifts and dinner in a restaurant. The local news agency was at the scene to capture pictures.
