Who is Wim Heemskerk?

History
Wim Heemskerk (1969) enjoyed managing a wholesale business in fruit and vegetables for nineteen years. During this time, he managed to expand the business into a modern and ultra innovative company, active in the food and non-food industries. The company served the Dutch catering industry, institutions and retail companies. In addition to this, the company imported vegetables, fruit and subtropical fruits from many countries all over the world. This resulted in excellent contacts abroad, spanning many years.

Developments
Under his management, the company developed several new and innovative food and non-food product lines. These were successfully introduced in the market, often under the company’s own label. Thanks to this rich experience, Wim Heemskerk is perfectly capable of helping entrepreneurs. Businesses in need of consultancy and expert supervision in their product and concept development will find working with him a pleasurable experience. They will also learn how to introduce these products successfully in the market.
