About van Soest:
It all begon in 1948 when sir van Soest senior started a cooling company for apples and peres in Kesteren. This turned out to be a solid base for future developments and the start of van Soest Chami-Mer. In 1989 the company started with freezing and processing champignons.
In the following years the company expanded en built multiple halls and some new production lines. Anno 2017 Champi-Mer is processing 20th ton of champignons per hour and are the world leading company on deeply frozen champignons and other products with champignons.
