Finance Manager


Vegetable manufacturer HAK was founded by the HAK family in Giessen in the country of Heusden and Altena. Since its foundation, the former family business has been processing high-quality fresh vegetables, pulses and fruit here for 65 years. HAK believes that the world is a better place where you can live longer and healthier if everyone eats a lot of vegetables, legumes and fruit. HAK wants to make healthy eating and living tastier and easier with fair-quality vegetables, pulses and fruit that HAK grows and harvests close to home if possible and processes and seasons them at home in Brabant according to the principles of the Green Kitchen. The motto of HAK is “Living from dependence”. In doing so, the company underlines the principle of reciprocity and respect for people and nature in everything the company does.
With the new investor (KDV Group), Hak expects to be able to grow rapidly and expand internationally.
"Under the wings of KDV, the aim is for HAK to grow faster in Europe. HAK will also focus even more on plant-based food. HAK will continue to operate independently under the new owner, says HAK CEO Timo Hogenboom. In collaboration with the new owner, HAK wants to tempt more people to eat vegetables and pulses. With the new investor (KDV Group), Hak expects to be able to grow rapidly and expand internationally."
