A few personal words.

"Fruit and vegetables are not just tasty, natural products, but are also essential to health and well-being. Our market potential is huge, with Germans currently eating only 50% of the recommended daily amount of fruit and vegetables."

Dirk Allerding, Managing Director

"Fresh produce is an exciting business. We see ourselves as the link between customers and global producers. Together with our partners, Fyffes, Capespan and Gemüsering Gruppe, as well as our Spanish brand, Tobsine, we offer our customers direct access to fruit from overseas as well as vegetables grown locally. This alliance has also helped us to develop a unique distribution and ripening network in Germany and Europe. Our customers benefit from highly professional, efficient solutions due to the direct and safe procurement of fresh produce from a single source. This is all the more important since a retailer's fresh produce department not only has the highest revenue, but is also of great strategic importance."

Jens Allerding, Commercial Director

Organising and safeguarding the work processes in a decentralised, medium-sized business like vanWylick is a great challenge and responsibility. With this in mind, the Finance, Controlling and IT department sees itself as a service provider for our branches, commerce and management.

Act by fact – that’s what our employees rely on, and it’s essential in our marginal cost business with fresh produce, enabling us to make the right decisions. To accomplish this, we need our IT systems to deliver optimum figures within the shortest possible time. We ensure this by having the department work in teams that are constantly improving our systems and infrastructure.

Till Bornhausen, Chief Financial Officer, Member of the Management Team

Supplying our customers with top-quality fresh produce is our daily mission and motivation. The stimulus in our industry is the speed and change – and the flexibility this requires at all levels. It never gets boring. Each new day demands quick decisions that can only be managed effectively with flat hierarchies. Self-initiative and a freedom to act are important values in our company.
