Kaaij Greenhouses UK – RedStar tomatoes
Brothers Cor and Dirk van der Kaaij have established Kaaij Greenhouses UK Ltd as the UK arm of their long-established Dutch operation, RedStar.
RedStar is one of the most successful tomato companies in Holland. Their focus on speciality varieties, particularly 'on the vine' has seen their production area grow to almost 58 hectares, 46 of which produce 52 weeks a year with the aid of artificial winter lighting. Besides cultivation, they are also active in the packaging, sales and marketing of their tasty tomatoes.
As a specialist in tomatoes, RedStar has a clear focus on taste. With the very best varieties as their basis, every year they work on refining and improving their products even more with innovations in plant breeding and care.
Not content with limiting their operation to Holland and the UK, they are also major shareholders in Cualin Quality, a 28-hectare Spanish operation that compliments their winter home cropping.
Through their partnerships and their own production in Holland, RedStar can guarantee the best possible fruit quality both nationally and abroad.
At Thanet Earth, Kaaij Greenhouses UK Ltd own and operate the UK's largest single unit greenhouse and manage the tomato growing operations of the new fourth greenhouse. They grow a full range of 10 different speciality vine tomatoes.
