About Us.

The Dutch side of the business, known as Vitaal Europe, operates from two trading offices: one in Emmen in the north of the Netherlands and another in Poeldijk near Rotterdam.

Having the two sites provides local expertise in both glasshouse production and open field.

Poeldijk Office

In 2004 we set out on a strategy to develop a European fresh produce trading network.

This led to the establishment of Vitaal Europe, now a major part of our business operating from a trading office in Poeldijk, one of Europe’s largest produce trading estates strategically positioned between Rotterdam and The Hague.

Our Poeldijk team offers a wide range of produce and collaborates closely with our Spanish business in Almeria to ensure a year-round supply of greenhouse crops.

Emmen Office

In 2009 we extended our presence in the Netherlands with a new trading office in Emmen.

Situated in the northeastern Drenthe region, our Emmen office specialises in the sales and procurement of open field products. While the UK remains an important market, the majority of sales are made into Eastern Europe, the Baltic states and Scandinavia.

Located near the German border, Emmen benefits from proximity to some of Europe’s largest cauliflower and iceberg lettuce producers.

In terms of logistics, our Emmen office operates differently from our Poeldijk depot, focusing on customers procuring full loads directly from trusted growers.

Working under the Nationwide Produce PLC group banner provides security and buying power to both offices. This allows the team to supply their customers quickly with the best produce at a competitive price.
