The Dutch Limited company Yellow Pallet B.V. was first established in January 2012. With the support of Startlife, Oost N.V., Wageningen University and Research Center and impact investor BothSidesNow, Yellow Pallet has been able to conduct research, execute the required tests and to establish the business. Yellow Pallet works exclusively with very experienced strategic mechanical engineering partners to realise the factories and services that produce blocks and pallets from banana fiber.
Hein Van Opstal (MSc) and Gert Kema (MSc, PhD) were the founders. Gert is currently employed by Wageningen University and Research Center and coordinates global research programs aiming at disease management in banana production.
Yellow Pallet is supported by a group of experienced private impact investors and funds.
