Leo Uitdewilligen is a member of Oxin Growers and owns two companies: Uijtdewilligen B.V. and Vergo Kwekerijen. The first company is the oldest, which was originally a lettuce and tomato nursery. This then became bell peppers, and since 2005, chilli peppers. The reason for the switch was to future proof the company, without having to increase in size. Specialisation offered the solution. Vergo was an existing pepper producing company that he took over in 2003, and where he currently grows pointed peppers.
