ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE

The BKD is an NDPB (non-departmental public body) that carries out its statutory duties by order of and under the supervision of the Dutch LNV Ministry (Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality). We have a board that is assisted by both a sector council and two advisory committees (cultivation and trading). In addition, the Management Team carries out the day-to-day management of the BKD, which team manages our 85 permanent and 30 flexible employees (namely our field, office and laboratory staff).

The board

The board consists of an independent chairperson and five board members, one of whom is independent too. The remaining board positions are divided between the KAVB (3) and Anthos (1). (Note: KAVB is the Royal Dutch General Bulb Growers’ Association and Anthos is the Royal Dutch Trade Association for Nursery Stock and Flower Bulbs.) The chairperson chairs the board meetings.

The sector council

The sector council assists the board. The board is made up of members of the KAVB (T. van den Berg, M. Oijevaar, L. Poel, H. van der Slot and advisor A. Versloot), Anthos (M. Dignum, H. Glorie, R. de Vries and advisor H. Kloosterboer), Plantum (R. Vletter) and Glastuinbouw Nederland (J. van Ruijven). J.K. van Ast is both chairperson of the board and chairperson of the sector council. The sector council can advise – both upon request and on its own initiative – about cross-crop issues (provided that they come under the BKD’s inspection regime), on budgetary and rate-related issues and on the BKD’s service level. When it comes to other issues, the sector council only issues advice upon the board’s request.

The advisory committees on cultivation and trading

The KAVB is a specialist in all matters relating to cultivation, whereas Anthos’s field of expertise is that of trading. This is why these two organisations have provided members for a Cultivation advisory committee and a Trading advisory committee respectively, which committees naturally advise the BKD board on matters concerning their own specialist field.
