History of Weyers
The company Weyers originates in 1969 as a true family company, They just startet with potatoes. At 1995 the Weyers GmbH was founded. The Weyers Group is now in its third generation. Robert Weyers heads the family business together with his wife Anja. A new, fresh breeze insures a good cooperation between proud growers and satisfied customers.
Today, the Weyers Group is made up of the following pillars:
Sunfresh GmbH: Production of fresh fruit and vegetables which are marketed exclusively by Weyers GmbH
Weyers GmbH: Customer-oriented procurement and sale of vegetables
Erzeugergrossmarkt NRW GmbH: Procurement and sale of locally grown, German vegetables
Sunfruits International B.V.: Procurement and sale of fruit
Warehousing Venlo B.V.: Handling and storage
Pakstation Venlo B.V.: Packaging
Venloer Transport GmbH: Transport and planning
Weyers disposes of its own cultivation areas near the sites of Venlo (Netherlands) and Weeze (Germany). Thanks to this, our company receives the necessary products straight from the horticultural and agricultural businesses local to the Rhine-Maas region in which Weyers is located.
Weyers also cooperates with contract farmers and maintains ties with leading international suppliers. The long-term contracts were concluded on the basis of the supplied quality and the necessary quantity of goods. This allows Weyers to deliver fresh products throughout the year.
The most important thing however is the natural chain. To respect our environment, Weyers chooses this method of cultivation, harvest and production. As regards cultivation, this means that decisions are made in terms of breed, cultivation method etc. that ensure the supply of optimised products for the customer and eventually the consumer.
This new attitude towards food safety and supply chain management will become increasingly important in the future. Weyers GmbH is well aware of these challenges. We see the sale of fresh produce within a closed supply chain as a crucial factor that will allow us to maintain an important role in the fruit and vegetable sector in the near future.
Our efforts are focused on cultivation as well as the final customer, in particular retailers. It is becoming increasingly clear that good business relationships with "the source" are extremely important to the final customer. The direct connection between the final customer and the producer/supplier offers an optimal tuning of supply and demand in terms of quality and quantity. Furthermore, an extended service package is important to us. Proper packaging, good logistics, professional marketing support, certified quality management and a closed tracking and tracing system are indispensable tools to achieve this.
company policy/customer orientation
What comes first and foremost for the Weyers-groep is a long-term relationship based on trust and reliability, with our customers as well as with our suppliers.
It is our most important duty to satisfy the wishes and needs of our customers. We regard ourselves as competent partners in terms of freshness, availability, punctuality, sustainability, innovation, product safety and the legality and quality of products.
Another important duty for us is to satisfy the natural needs of the end users for transparency, product safety and sustainability.
Embracing the principle "from farm to fork" we commit ourselves to close, long-term business relationships with our suppliers for a direct, short, traceable and transparent supply chain. Ideally our products come from contracted farmers of whom we direct the cultivation by means of the requirements of our customers and through meticulous seasonal planning. The related plannability and certainty which we provide for our growers form the basis of their production capacity and above-average strong quality awareness.
Both our business partners and our employees must be able to trust our performance continuously. For us, efficient and profitable business operations form the guarantee of economic stability and the basis for further development and innovation in the sense of continuously increasing requirements and duties which both customers and suppliers as well as end users and the environment set for us.
We take our social responsibility very seriously indeed. Therefore it is not only within our group but also with our business partners that we attach great value to a sustainable production whereby any waste of resources is prevented as much as possible and whereby social standards are adhered to. For this reason we expect from the growers who supply to us that they satisfy the voluntary additional assessment (GRASP requirement).
Our group consists of companies that carry out highly varied duties in the production and supply chain. This allows us to guarantee that down from the cultivation up to the delivery to our customers we can always exert direct and immediate influence on the quality of the performance, whereby we have optimal flexibility and independence.
Thanks to this setup the separate companies within the group profit from the strength of a collective performance and way of doing business and from the advantages of shared competences and experiences.
