About Manon Krijnen
Manon Krijnen is the driving force behind Miss Berry. As the daughter of a chicory grower, she started her company after hearing about a soft fruit grower that was looking for a buyer for his class 3 fruit. Manon took it upon herself to find a buyer and she did. That year she supplied the food processer in Germany with 50,000 kilos of overripe raspberries and blackberries.
She quickly saw that there was also a lot of demand for class 3 strawberries and other soft fruit. She contacted more growers. Her solution-oriented manner and her desire to connect the different stakeholders meant that her company grew quickly. Within 3 years the 50,000 kilos of class 3 soft fruit had grown to more than 2 million kilos a year.
