Necessary steps have recently been taken to realize this ambition. “We recently bought the vacant buildings of Chicken Slaughter Frisia, which also employs 25 former Frisia staff in Machandal, bringing the total number of people working for us to 120. The buildings will be used for storage, but also for future production.” We also have the right to first purchase land of several thousand square meters on our own premises. “
The company offers 400 to 500 biodynamic and organic products to wholesalers and distributors. Most of these cross the border, mainly to Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan and Australia. Machandel not only fills glass jars safely, but also fills sauces, soups, nut butter and pickles.
Machandel works with about 100 organic and biodynamic horticultural and agricultural farmers. “The long-term relationship of trust that we have with them and our customers is the pillar of our success,” he says, adding that in principle we are strategic partners and expects the demand for organic food to continue to increase.
