“Of the companies that comprise Van der Mey Vers Vlees and Bacon Export, Gebr. Van der Mey Vers Vlees BV uses the services of Frigo Nieuw-Vennep. Every week, we process over 400 tons of pork with approximately one hundred employees. In our own cold store, with a storage capacity of 800 tonnes, we store our working stock, among other things. The rest goes to Frigo. We are mainly talking about boned pork, which, with Nieuw-Vennep as a stopover, is destined for Asia in general and China in particular. On average, Frigo has about 500 tonnes of deboned and refined pork ready for shipment to end users on the other side of the world. We have our own shock milling capacity, but often have it done in Nieuw-Vennep.
It goes without saying that we are satisfied with Frigo Nieuw-Vennep’s services: we have been customers for forty years and hope to remain so for many years to come. Both family businesses have a lot in common: loyal employees, short lines of communication, no superfluous management layers and a no nonsense mentality. Every day, we receive an e-mail with an overview of our stock at Frigo. Arno and Peter/Theo have a lot of contact on behalf of Van der Mey and Frigo respectively. One word is enough, they can read and write together. Actually, everything has been running smoothly for forty years. Of course, there are always problems. But at Frigo it’s always solved in consultation.
