Leo de Kock is your reliable and professional partner in the supply chain from the farm to wholesalers and supermarkets. We make sure everything runs smoothly!
Our core values
Potato virusYour eyes do not deceive you: our incredibly healthy company is infected with the potato virus. But in our case, it's not harmful. In fact, it's pleasantly and positively contagious! We are proud of our potatoes and vegetables and of the expertise involved in their production. We are happy to share that passion and professionalism with you.
ResponsibleWe closely monitor every step in the chain, from grower to retailer. To use a buzzword - transparency. We prefer to call it operational openness. As a fair, pragmatic and decisive entrepreneur and employer, it's something we attach great importance to. We are keen to hear about the current developments from our customers, partners and employees. We take our responsibility for sustainability and food safety seriously. And we firmly believe in the importance of giving the people who grow, sell, process and transport our products the appreciation they deserve.
In controlLeo de Kock is your reliable and professional partner in the supply chain from the farm to wholesalers and supermarkets. We ensure a streamlined process that is closely monitored by our supply chain planners. And nothing escapes the sharp and experienced eyes of the operators of our line of machines. From the team member who grades the potatoes to size to the operator responsible for the inspections… Everyone at Leo de Kock is committed to the healthy and fresh, premium quality produce we promise our customers!
AnalyticalLeo de Kock is typified by a ‘no nonsense’ attitude, but we are certainly not all about what happens at surface level. We like to zoom into the details. Our company is data driven. We collect and analyse valuable key data on our produce and processes. This in-depth analysis leads us to the heart of the matter: how can we supply you with the very best potatoes and vegetables? And how can we take our service and partnership to the next level? Think, then act is the guiding principle at Leo de Kock.
