Promoting European flax in India
Alex Vanneste is President of Belgium-based N.V. Jos Vanneste, wellknown worldwide for flax fibres, pure linen yarns and linen tops used for blending with other fibres. N.V. Jos Vanneste produces a monthly capacity of 300 tonnes of fibre production, 1,000 tonne for trading and 120 tonne for yarn selling in all parts of the world. Trading and promotion of different flax raw materials have been the roots of “Jos Vanneste” company. Through its centralised location in Kortrijk (Belgium), the middle of the three main quality flax producing countries, N.V. Jos Vanneste is still convinced that this historical flax world centre will stay a main distribution axis for the trading of flax. Trading in flax is part of its family tradition and it is a personal challenge and big passion of Alex Vanneste to keep that activity florising over the next decades.
