At Looye Kwekers taste tomatoes are grown and packaged with the utmost care and quality.
"Growing tasty tomatoes can be hard work. Particularly for Mother Nature. At Looye Kwekers we do our very best to give her a helping hand. And we do that in our own unique way – with a gentle touch, a keen eye and always working as a team. Because together we get the very best out of each other, and that means we always get the best flavour out of our tomatoes.”
High season is between November and June. Then you can work more hours (on average 40 - 45 hours). Christmas and Easter are very busy. It can be difficult to take a vacation.
"Our ambition is for people to enjoy exceptionally flavorful tomatoes. We have been doing this as a family business for 75 years and we are super proud of that!"
