Pieter Ploegmakers started out in the food industry in the 1950’s. In the 1960’s he went to Australia in order to grow strawberries, an activity he developed in Seymour (Brisbane), where he achieved a great success. At the end of the 1960’s he went back to his home country, The Netherlands, and started to work in his family farm. Apart from growing vegetables, he started to clean, freeze and sell them to leading European multinational companies.
In 1998, the company set up a Spanish subsidiary in Amposta (province of Tarragona, Spain). During many years, the Spanish company of Ploegmakers purchased and processed fresh vegetables from growers in Spain and exported them, cut and frozen, to the Netherlands and to other European countries. The company was specialized, among other products, in organic food for baby industry, an activity where quality, soundness and traceability are essential.
Nowadays, L&P Global has two companies in Europe (Spain and The Netherlands) and one in China (Qingdao, Shandong). Its main business is focused on wine, olive oil and water, as well as the added value that L&P Global can provide to other companies thanks to its experience in the food business. This has enabled many European companies to become quickly established in the Chinese market through L&P Global.
