Hakkert Product Support (HPS) assists manufacturers in the successful launching of new products including chemical and organic crop protection products, fertilisers, plant strengtheners, etc..
“Large manufacturers employ people with specific knowledge and contacts in the various sectors. Smaller manufacturers and importers often do not have access to this knowledge or these contacts. Hakkert Product Support is an interesting partner, in particular for this group of companies. My background and working experience give me intimate knowledge of the sector, and I know what is required to successfully launch new products onto the market. In collaboration with the client, HPS devises a strategy for research, promotion, communication, positioning and distribution of the product. Dependent on the product and the wishes of the client, HPS targets intermediaries, growers or both. Thanks to its extensive knowledge and contacts, HPS can bridge the gap between the manufacturer and the grower and in this way stimulate the grower's demand for your product.”
