Who we are
DOOR is a professional cooperative society of, and on behalf of growers of fruiting vegetables. With over 40 members and a total of more than 520 hectare of greenhouses we make an impact in the branch. Exporters and service providers help our products find their way to retail- and food services across Europe and beyond. We relieve you of some concerns by providing professional support on all important issues. DOOR focuses on sales, marketing and innovation. Our subsidiary DOOR Partners PLC is responsible for the sale, marketing and quality control of our vine tomatoes, (sweet pointed) peppers, aubergines, vegetable snacks and cucumbers.
We are of added value to our members. Our product groups and brands take centre stage; DOOR is supportive. We facilitate, initiate and create for and on behalf of passionate growers. Our efforts:
- Facilitate members in the sphere of ICT, finance, food safety and HRM;
- Unfold initiatives, allowing members to develop further and more rapidly;
- Explore the market and develop strategies to revalue brands within the chain.
The starting points of our members are the same: an autonomous market position, optimal product quality and the willingness to invest in marketing. Our joint businesses have sufficient scale and competitive prices. At the same time, these are businesses that fit well within the cooperative structure: they welcome the added value of collaborate entrepreneurship. Mainly, this is the driving force. Important, future based research and solid projects are implemented together. The results are long-lasting, thanks to our combined knowledge and expertise.
Within the cooperative we perform important key tasks: Finance, ICT, food safety and HRM. We do this from a flat and transparent organisation.
DOOR Partners is our 100% subsidiary in sales. The co-workers of DOOR Partners are responsible for sales and marketing of our member’s produce. They form the most important link between growers and customers. Their involvement, pride, responsibility and passion for both the product and the company ensures a qualitative high-grade service and customer experience.
