What started with a single vegetable store by Achiel De Witte some 40 years ago, has grown into an international group that imports fruit and vegetables from over 75 countries and exports them to more than 15 countries. The company’s headquarters are in Brussels, there are 24 branches throughout Belgium and the Netherlands and they have almost 600 employees. “Fruit and vegetables have always been a part of the De Witte family,” explains Stijn Vermoere of Group A. De Witte. “So it was a natural step for Achiel to have a shop of his own. From there, the growth just came organically.
