The FD Gazellen Award is given to 685 of all companies in the Netherlands and presented for the nineteenth time by Het Financieele Dagblad (FD). The growth of these companies is measured not only by net sales, which must have increased by at least 20% in the past three years, also employee growth and profitability.
For the third year in a row, Bluem has been elected as one of these fastest growing companies.
“We are of course super proud of this achievement.” says a delighted Johan Blijdorp, sales director of Bluem. “The team has pulled out all the stops to push forward internationally. Our new distributor in Saudi Arabia has made a big difference in 2021. In the Middle East, oral care is the big trend, people there understand better the impact of oral care on overall health. And that, of course, is exactly what our goal is; to help people towards better health!
“We are of course super proud of this achievement.”
“And not only healthy people” adds Nathalie Beck, managing director at Bluem, “also pursuing a healthy business. Three to thrive!” Winning this award three times in a row doesn’t only mean that we are growing, but also that we are healthy as a company. Of course, we see many companies around us raising money and doing crazy things but what we are doing is planned and healthy! 2022 is a challenge due to the geopolitical situation, but again, we definitely have the FD award in our sight. To make an impact as a do-good company, we need to keep growing.”
