About us

Henk de Leeuw, “The Lion”

Henk “Lion” De Leeuw is the reason why Polproduct exists – he was the one to start the company in 1958. He was a true legend in the fruit industry and was known both in Western and Eastern Europe.

While there are many peculiar and funny stories to tell about Henk, one of the funniest oneĀ“s is definitely “the frog story” pictured in the interview taken in 1968. Henk ordered a container of strawberries, but instead ended up with a container full of live frogs. So he decided to give the frogs a new home and emptied the container in the lake.

Unfortunately, Henk passed away in October 2020 after living an amazingly adventurous life of 86 years. He will always remain in the heart of his colleagues and more importantly, in the heart of Polproduct! Thank you Henk!
