WPK conducts its business in a socially responsible manner, for example in the areas of energy, environment and work. WPK supplies energy to its greenhouses in Made by using residual heat from the nearby ‘Amer Centrale’. Obvious, the aim is to minimize the use of pesticides. The welfare of our employees is an important issue for WPK. Therefore WPK has the necessary certificates: MPS-A for responsible use of pesticides and MPS-SQ for products grown under good working conditions. Finally WPK also has the ISO 9001 certificate.
WPK is also committed to the development of the horticultural sections in Made and the surrounding area. WPK participates in a partnership with other greenhouse horticulture holdings. Under the name ‘Kansrijk Made’ these companies strive for a better positioning of greenhouse horticulture in Brabant. WPK has also participated a number of times to the public event ‘Kom in de Kas’.
Since 2013, WPK is a sponsor of handball club WPK Westlandia from Naaldwijk. Erik and Eviek van der Arend are not only personally involved in the club, this sponsorship activity also fits perfectly in the healthy food where WPK stands for.
