Herwig Dejonghe, CEO and owner of Antarctic Foods and Foodies, with head offices in Belgium (Roeselare) and a frozen vegetable production unit in the Aquitaine region of Southwest France (Bordeaux/Ychoux), speaks about his “re-birth” in the frozen vegetable business in the best agricultural area of France. The former CEO of Pinguin bought this state-of-the-art factory from the Pinguin Group in January of 2015. The new company name, Antarctic Foods Aquitaine, stands for top frozen natural vegetables. The production facility specializes in supersweet sweetcorn, baby carrots, sliced and diced carrots, green beans and green peas for the food industry and artisans. Due to the extremely favorable climate, farmers in the Aquitaine region offer important quantities of organic vegetables.
