The Hillenraad100 provides an overview of the hundred leading companies in the knowledge and capital-intensive greenhouse and horticulture industries. Anthura is officially quoted for the past 10 years. Only one percent of the enterprises in the Dutch horticulture industry is quoted in the Hillenraad100. A listing in the Hillenraad100 is therefore an acknowledgement of leading entrepreneurship.
On Friday, November 3, the 15th edition of the annual Hortigala was held in the Rivièra Hall at Blijdorp Rotterdam Zoo. The traditional highlight of the evening was the announcement of this year’s Hillenraad 100.
Powerhouse or nodal firm
This year’s jubilee theme is Powerhouse or nodal firm. The basis for future success becomes visible, i.e. distinction between, and the choice for, a powerhouse or nodal firm. A powerhouse is big and makes the rules. A nodal firm occupies a crucial position in a larger whole. This ‘node’ is small but essential.
5th place Hillenraad 2017
We are proud of our 5th place in de Hillenraad100. Anthura is highly rated in terms of strategic power, professionalism and potential. Jumping no fewer than three places in the top 10 is quite a performance, and a well-deserved one.
For over fifteen years Anthura is listed in the Hillenraad 100 and for ten years it has even a top 10 quotation of the top 100 of all times.
Anthura congratulates all other horticulture companies with their quotation in the Hillenraad 100 of 2017, particularly Ter Laak Orchids with the Sustainability Prize.
