De Vries Van Oers
De Vries Snacks and Van Oers Snacks joined forces under a new group, De Vries Van Oers, in June 2015. Both family businesses have long been active in the OOH market for frozen snacks in the Netherlands and Belgium. While De Vries Snacks primarily known for the well-known product brand names like Mexicano® and is strong in the snack bar sector, Van Oers is primarily well-represented in the Petrol, Catering, and Leisure channels. In addition to a wide range of catering products, Van Oers is also strong in salads for in-flight catering, among others.
CEO Kamiel Steendijk confirmed that the addition of De Vries Van Oers will further strengthen the IZICO Food Group’s foundations. “With the De Vries Van Oers range, we are more capable of offering our partners in the OOH market a complete portfolio. Plus, the wealth of experience built up by De Vries Van Oers will be a valuable addition to the IZICO Food Group.” Willem van de Vorst, CEO of De Vries Van Oers adds, “After De Vries and Van Oers joined forces, I was pleased that we could now add our group to that of IZICO Food Group. I believe that it is a step in the right direction for both parties in a competitive and consolidating market.”
IZICO Food Group and De Vries Van Oers are taking advantage of each other’s strengths and complement one another in many ways. They see a very bright future together.
