It’s not just about the company; it’s about the people who contribute to its growth and success every day. Our employees are our most valuable asset.”
Reflecting on the company’s mission, Idema added, “Earlier this year, during the jury’s visit, we had the opportunity to showcase what our company stands for.

We convey this message both online and in physical retail spaces, as evidenced by our collaborations with retailers throughout Europe.
