Wil Beekers, Beekers Berries
Originally the Dutch grower Wil Beekers started his company in 1991 growing cucumbers.
After five years he decided to make the switch to strawberry cultivation, this turned out to be a great decision. What started small in 1995 has now become an area of 14 hectares of greenhouses where today not only strawberries, but since 2003, blackberries and raspberries are also grown. At Beekers Berries all these types of soft fruit are grown within long-term breeding program agreements. Wil is constantly looking for opportunities and resources to further develop this program to further refine and optimise the quality and taste of his products wherever possible. The intensive research and selection work that comes with it has already resulted in some sensational taste and quality improvements. Besides strawberries, raspberries and blackberries Berries Beekers extended its product program several years ago with various specialty berries. The Strasberry was launched in 2006 and in 2010 the well-known Pineberry followed.
Beekers Berries believe that the wishes of the consumer are a very important value and are fundamental to every decision they make. By listening to the needs of the consumers, they try to serve soft fruit lovers in the best way possible!
