In everything we do, Van Asseldonk Mushrooms is but a small part of a whole bigger picture. We enjoy collaborating in the cooperative. As a member of the cooperative CNC, we are provided with the basis for our cultivation, namely the fully-grown compost. As a member of a cooperative you undertake together and you jointly own the cooperative and the companies that belong to it. You share knowledge and risks with them. With all the companies with which we do business, we always try to work smarter, better, closer, more efficiently, to battle rising costs, to raise product quality and to work for a safer and more environmentally friendly process. Together with our partner companies, we have often realized various innovations in co-production; for example, sorting machines, cutting machines, screens for air movement, bat machines, better cloth cleaners, better scissor lifts, et cetera. An important part of our cooperation also happens because we are part of and make use of the entire agri-food network in the Netherlands. We use our general knowledge, the newest education, technologies and residual products from other farmers, etc. Without this, we would have not have been so successful. In conjunction with our customers we determine their needs and identify what they find important and how we can best meet their demands. We are located in the municipality of Boekel and the province of Noord Brabant and in the area of the Aa and Maas water board. We always consult with these government institutions in an open and future-oriented manner. This helps us determine future plans that are then widely supported and more than meet everyone’s objectives. Our hard-working and committed employees live in Boekel or in the immediate vicinity. With this employment, Van Asseldonk Champignons makes a healthy, modest contribution to the local economy and community. In sponsoring the youth of soccer club Boekel Sport and sponsoring the most important cultural event in our village of Boecult, we also more than contribute socially to our healthy local community.
