Fred Kloen leaves OTC Organics after 20 years

For personal reasons our Commercial Director Fred Kloen has decided to leave OTC Organics at the end of 2021.

Over 20 years ago Fred Kloen, Edward Out and Nils Tromp founded Tellus Produce B.V. (later OTC Organics) and opened the doors of their first office at the Bronsweg in Lelystad, The Netherlands. Meanwhile OTC Organics has grown to one of the leading importers and exporters in organic fruit and vegetables, together with the team of dedicated, enthusiastic and profession employees.

He leaves the company with trust and faith in the hands of Edward Out, the team and the new shareholders, with great respect and thankfulness for all they have achieved over the past years.

In this letter Fred takes you back to where it all started and tells you about his ground to leave OTC Organics.
