Pop Vriend Seeds nieuwe hoofdsponsor Dijkpop

Creatief partnership 
Dijkpops Joost Buis is blij met de samenwerking met Pop Vriend Seeds: ‘Pop Vriend is echt zo’n bedrijf waar Andijk trots op is. Ze doen zaken over de hele wereld maar we delen de - misschien wel typisch West-Friese - mentaliteit van no-nonsens, aanpakken en gewoon doen. Je merkt ook dat ze het festival kennen; we werken samen aan leuke en vernieuwende ideeën om deze 37e editie weer memorabel te maken’.

Farewell message Lara

Lara: "After 19 ½ years at Pop Vriend Seeds it's a wrap! I've loved it & will miss all the people around the world. But... I'm looking forward to new things in life and I'm sure our paths will cross someday somewhere". 

Competitors become friends!

Seed Valley soccer tournament

In January the 10th Seed Valley indoor football tournament took place. This time the organization was in the hands of Pop Vriend and it was a great success. The ladies had set up the Seed Valley all-stars team together with Bejo. Quite successfully the tournament ended with a third place. The men ended at the 4th place, but Pop Vriend finished as undisputed champions in the third half.

Pop Vriend Seeds shares acquired by KWS

who makes a start in the vegetable business.

Early in the morning of June 19th Pop Vriend Seeds came to an agreement with KWS to sell 100% of its shares to the family-owned German seed company.

Lara Timmerman, our CEO, is excited about KWS. “KWS is a company with a long term history and horizon in plant breeding. I believe KWS will be a good home for our company as they tick all our boxes. They are technology driven, striving to continue and grow our business from the site in Andijk and we are both family companies with the same values about employees and clients.
