Het team

VanBoven is eind 2018 gestart door drie vrienden: Kaz, Eric en Bas. Zij hebben de handen ineengeslagen om de kracht van data te ontsluiten in de groentesector. Samen met een groeiend team van jonge ambitieuze engineers zetten zij zich in voor een slimme, duurzame en groene toekomst. VanBoven werkt nauw samen met toonaangevende partijen in de keten van verse groenten: onderzoeksinstellingen, grote telers en retailers.
