Executive Assistant Angélique Nooijen, who is based at Vepak’s Menhirweg site, has one of the most dynamic jobs going at our company – one where flexibility is the name of the game. And if that isn’t enough, this talented all-rounder is also involved in marketing communications. To find out just what Angélique gets up to on a typical workday, we tagged along with her for an entire day.
Audit FSSC2200: food safety guaranteed
Food safety is of course an important theme at Vetipak. That is why we are proud of the positive results of the FSSC2200 audit, which independently tests us against it.
The FSSC2200 audit of the ISACert certification body took place at our locations in Oss and Veghel at the end of June. The audit is specifically aimed at food safety. We have been tested against the newly released standard versions of the FSSC22000 (V5) en ISO22000 (2018). These standards focus in particular on the PDCA cycle and on risk-based thinking, both at the level of the overarching management system and the operational HACCP plan.
Of course there was a strict corona protocol. For example, interviews in the production environment were replaced by remote demonstrations. Thanks to these measures, we were able to go through the planned audit program completely and the auditor obtained a good overview.
And the result? As expected, it was very positive. We were given a few small minors for improvement, which we of course immediately addressed. Another result we are proud of!

Solved: Emergency Job for Nationwide Consortium
It’s a Wednesday afternoon. We receive a call from the National Consortium for Medical Devices, based in Den Haag. They’re urgently looking for large-scale packaging services. And not only do they need these services “yesterday,” they want the reassurance that the packaging operations comply with the strictest quality and hygiene guidelines. “Can you handle this sort of thing?”, they ask us. Six days later, we’ve massively upscaled our Personal Care division, to the point where we can now deliver tens of thousands of kits a week.
Oss takes the lead in circular packaging
Just like Vetipak, the municipality of Oss is very active in the field of sustainable packaging. Due to the strong presence of the packaging industry in the area, the municipality has even launched the Oss Circular Packaging Innovation Program. A publication on this subject recently appeared in FOOD Locations, for which our CCO Mark van der Burgt was also interviewed.
