These are incredibly challenging times for the horticulture sector. The corona crisis has hit many companies hard, and we are all making a concerted effort to get our sector flourishing again. Transparent, sustainable practices are just as important as ever, and certification plays a part in that. Over the past few years, the MPS Group has been working on a “new MPS” that is capable of facing the challenges. And despite the recent increase in competition from similar organisations, we have every confidence in the future.

With our team at MPS now ready to rise to these challenges, this is therefore an appropriate time to reflect on the positions and personal ambitions of the people who have brought the organisation to where we are today. With this in mind, our CEO, Yolande van den Boom, has decided to seek a new challenge. As of today, our deputy director Harold Beek will be the designated contact and will be assuming executive duties while Yolande van den Boom focuses on the handover.

Yolande would like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners in the sector for making the past four years so enjoyable and fruitful. “Working for MPS and with all of you in this wonderful sector has given me so much pleasure every single day.” She wishes all staff and management of the MPS Group much success in achieving their goals and has every confidence that the MPS Group will retain and build on its excellent market position and will succeed in its ambition to support the international horticulture sector becoming more sustainable.
