No hygiene regulations can compete with this

16 November 2020

Hygiene is in the spotlight in these covid times. In fact, as far as I am concerned, the subject is finally getting the attention it deserves. The government is constantly calling on people to comply with hygiene regulat...

About guts, decisiveness and positivity

16 November 2020

Nobody failed to notice: there has been a shortage of test capacity for corona in the Netherlands for some time now. This is largely due to the way in which testing is organised. That's why our lab was increasingly appro...

Getting over the corona ditch together

16 November 2020

We back-up everything. It must be packed in 'the cloud' in the meantime. I see a rental company for storage boxes, every loft filled with beautiful stuff (data), but also with a lot of unnecessary junk. If something goes...

Warm contacts

16 November 2020

Are you already getting used to Teams? I am not. I don't think I'll ever get used to it; I'm still a people person.  We miss so many moments of personal contact with each other; both in private life and at work. ...

The grass is always greener next door...

12 October 2020

In my case, the above applies quite literally. Our lawn is a battlefield of various grasses, moss, dead spots and dandelions. The neighbours, on the other hand, can show off a tight, shortened, fresh green patch. Through...

Automation starts in your heart and your head

12 October 2020

Why start automating? Why choose to digitise? We often think about saving money or making your process less vulnerable. Thinking from the customer's point of view is better. What does the customer want and what do you ha...

Never become an expert

12 October 2020

The greatest poison in forward-thinking is experience. If you had been able to ask a coachman from the year 1900 about his dreams, he would have answered something like: "Give me a pair of horses that run four times a...

Robotisation: usefulness and necessity

12 October 2020

Food safety, in other words ensuring food quality, is crucial in the production and packaging of our food. Hygienic design, automation and robotics now play an essential role in this respect.  The food industry i...

Black Hole

12 October 2020

January, February, Quarantine, December; We laugh about it, but that's the way it is. From March onwards, many fell into a black hole and the rest of the year went by in a haze. With ups and downs, heavy declines in turn...

Discovery tours

14 September 2020

'Nothing new under the sun', was what I thought in June, at the start of my summer vacation. The corona crisis quietly muddled on. No big trip to unknown places. No unexpected encounters or new mountain hiking routes, no...

Proteins can change the world

14 September 2020

To keep our bodies going we need nutrients: fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Two of these macro nutrients: the (satured) fats and carbohydrates (starch and sugars), have been under attack for decades, because they are a...

Corona - learn to play outside again

14 September 2020

Due to the lack of physical communication, we are now using Teams, Skype etcetera on a large scale. It works. Although... how do you explain the smell of delicious fresh bread? The smoothness of leather? The tenderness o...

Picture book

14 September 2020

Yeah, we're still there. No room for events. At the time I'm writing this, the Empack has also been cancelled. I didn't expect otherwise, but still. This autumn we will carefully resume our activities with an OSV golf...

Glass sphere

15 June 2020

The corona-lockdowns are slowly being lifted. Carefully we step back into the big wide world. A world marked by new boundaries. How do they progress? We don't know. To me the spring with the world locked up was silent...

Rebuilding society

15 June 2020

Corona is rebuilding society more radically in 12 weeks than the regular economy in the previous 12 years. The expectation is that in a large number of shopping cities the square metres of retail space will be reduced to...
