Agro Care and CombiVliet, two leading tomato cultivation companies in the Netherlands, have announced plans to merge, subject to approval by the Consumer & Market Authority. The merger, set to be backdated to January 1, 2023, will create the largest tomato-growing entity in the Netherlands, boasting a combined acreage of 500 hectares. Both companies have significant international operations, including locations in Tunisia, Morocco, France, and Brazil. The merger aims to enhance operational scale, sustainability, and profitability, a strategy guided by the expertise of investment company NPM Capital. CEO of Agro Care, Kees van Veen, and Managing Director Netherlands, Roy van Vliet, emphasize the alignment with global sustainability trends and the benefits of a larger operational scale. Following approval, integration will begin immediately, with a gradual rebranding to retain Agro Care as the global name.
