Frespo (renamed from Aviko Cuijk) has been successfully part of the Aviko Group for decades and has been carved-out by Nimbus. Frespo will continue its successful strategy focussing on steam fresh and pre-cooked potato products for the Foodservice and Business to Industry markets across Europe. Nimbus will support Frespo to transition into a focussed and customer centric stand-alone organisation. Nimbus will continue to invest to support Frespo’s growth ambitions and is looking forward working together with its key stakeholders, including the customers, suppliers and employees. The business offers high quality fresh products and operates a very talented team. The end-market and customer demands offer significant opportunities for Frespo to continue and accelerate its growth.

"With Nimbus as new owner of the Cuijk site, we expect a bright future to lie ahead for the factory and its employees. The site has a good customer portfolio, professional machinery and, above all, committed employees with a great deal of knowledge and expertise. As part of Nimbus, the plant will have the opportunity to focus on fresh speciality products and invest in its future”, says Maarten van Delst, CEO Aviko Group.

Nimbus is pleased that it has already appointed a new management team whilst the commercial and overhead teams will be further built. Anouk ter Laak will be the CEO and brings extensive commercial and operational experience, while Coen Coremans as the CFO brings extensive finance experience. “Frespo has great potential and together with Nimbus we can shape our future and realise the heights of our ambitions. We are excited to continue delivering delicious, high quality and varied products to our customers and to continue to work closely with our suppliers. Our strategy is to focus on building a great team, an efficient operation and growth via innovations, our existing and new customers and markets,” says Anouk ter Laak.
