On June 11, 2018, the shareholders of Foppen Groep B.V. in Harderwijk and Klaas Puul Beheer B.V. in Volendam reached an agreement on a merger between the two companies. Both Foppen and Klaas Puul are renowned companies in the salmon and shrimp processing branch and have a long history as family-owned businesses in the food processing industry. Together they will continue under the name ‘Dutch Seafood Company’.
The current management teams of Foppen and Klaas Puul will be in charge of the new combination, led by CEO André van de Padt. “The merger of these two wonderful organisations will provide us with a stronger market position and it allows us to serve our clients even better. By applying and implementing all our expertise and experience into our processes, we can respond even better to the market requirements and opportunities”, says Van der Padt.
