The demand for locally grown and healthy food continues to grow in the U.S. Moreover, the U.S. continues to be a strategic hub for global decision-making in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA). Van der Hoeven Horticultural Projects, therefore, has opened an office in the U.S.
The office will be located in New York City. From this office, Van der Hoeven will support its customers and stakeholders throughout the entire CEA value chain with integrated design, build, and operating solutions.
In close collaboration with customers, Van der Hoeven assesses projects throughout the infrastructural design life from both financial and sustainable perspectives. This approach minimizes the footprint of the crop and provides viable financial returns. Projects will be de-risked and made future-proof by applying the most advanced technologies, accustomed to project needs. Bas Duijvestijn will be heading the office and will relocate to the U.S.
Michiel Schoenmaeckers, CEO Van der Hoeven: “Our mission is to provide a sustainable taste everywhere. The aspiration of this move is to be closer to our customers and stakeholders in order to advance the dialogue on a project basis towards responsible decision-making for tomorrow’s food infrastructure. We wish Bas and his team the best of luck in his assignment.”
