The regional business journal Bedrijvig Oss has published a comprehensive article about the ‘sense and nonsense of tenders’. The article featured in-depth interviews with two experts: Pim Ketelaars from innovation agency Hello New Day and – for the local perspective – our own CCO Mark van der Burgt. The gist of Mark’s story is: tenders definitely make sense, as long as the focus is on making a difference together.
Rani leaves Vetipak after almost 10 years
With pain in our hearts we have to inform you that our loyal receptionist Rani is leaving us. For almost 10 years, Rani -also known as “the tropical surprise of Vetipak” according to her colleagues- was the face and voice of our head office.
In those 10 years, Rani brought a smile and a good atmosphere, but she was also extremely professional with customers, suppliers and her own colleagues. It was always a party to call the head office in Oss, because then you got Rani on the phone. She took the time for everyone and people on the other end of the line always appreciated that.
Rani fitted well with the Vetipak DNA, she thought that the G of Gelijkwaardigheid (equality) was very important. If there was no equality in the workplace, there was no room to make a difference together. And if she didn't agree with something, she just put on her "Sorry I'm not listening" t-shirt. Because Rani didn’t only communicate by phone, but also internally via her private collection with the most enjoyable quotes on her t-shirts. Every time a surprise for us…
Rani, we thank you for your efforts in recent decades and we wish you all the best and good luck in your new challenge. One thing is for sure; at the Vetipak parties we don't have to buy as much Hugo as usual!
Fridaymorning August 16 is Rani her last day at Vetipak.

Vetipak and the coronavirus pandemic: pushing on to the finish line
March 2020: most Dutch people believe that the new coronavirus won’t be that bad. Just be careful for a few weeks, and the worst will be over soon... But at Vetipak we had other ideas. We formed a coronavirus team even before the first lockdown was announced. March 2021: a look back on the past 12 months.
