Vereijken Kwekerijen leads innovation in horticulture with Intelligent Algorithms



Vereijken Kwekerijen (Nurseries), a leading modern company with seven locations spread over a total of 60 hectares, marks a remarkable shift in the horticulture sector. Guided by a vision of innovation and efficiency, the company has focused on advanced technologies such as intelligent algorithms to maximize productivity and promote sustainability.

One of the most notable aspects of Vereijken's approach is the integration of data analysis into their cultivation processes. Whereas decisions were previously mainly based on intuition and experience, the company has undergone a radical change towards a more factual approach, supported by advanced analytics and intelligent algorithms.

"Intuition means nothing to me as a young grower," notes Stefan Biemans, head grower at Vereijken Kwekerijen. "We want to be able to use data, backed by facts, to make choices." This philosophy has led to significant benefits, with every minute of cultivation being optimized thanks to the power of intelligent algorithms.


Vereijken's collaboration with Hoogendoorn has further strengthened these efforts. By embracing the latest developments in Hoogendoorn’s Intelligent Algorithms, Vereijken stays ahead of the competition, with each new algorithm development offering new opportunities to improve efficiency and optimize production.

One of the most striking benefits of these technologies is the ability to save energy while increasing productivity. By making data-driven decisions, Vereijken can maximize energy efficiency, resulting in better production with consistent energy consumption.

The implementation of IIVO and Intelligent Algorithms has proven invaluable to Vereijken. With one location already embracing these technologies, the company plans to transition the other locations to these advanced algorithms as well.
