We continue to work on development and safety.

For example, last week some colleagues went on a training course to learn how to safely use a forklift truck.
💪🏻 Well done guys! 💪🏻

Thank you Joost Slaats for the great guidance.

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!



Circular coffee drinking

In our business, we are used to fighting fungi. But recently we have also become a promoter of fungi: oyster mushrooms.

The residue from our coffee machines is collected and the company Zwamburg uses this as a growing medium for their products. It is another step on the road to a circular economy.🍄 When can we taste the results?



Forklift certificates

Ed, Djesse, Wil and Jean-Paul, congratulations on getting your forklift truck certificates.

I bet Wil had imagined his first days on the forklift a bit different …


Upcoming shows

We will be present at a lot less trade shows this year, due to COVID-19. We regret that we can not meet with customers on these events. Of course you are always welcome to contact us if you would like to catch up, or discuss ideas.

We will be present at the following event.

Potato Europe

1st and 2nd of September 2021
Lelystad, The Netherlands



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.
