According to Reuters, Picnic has raised 600 million euros ($706 million) from investors in 2021, including The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Trust, to help speed up its expansion.

Picnic relies on its distribution model and technology to distribute food through electric Picnic vehicles (ePvs).

In April 2022, Picnic announced that it has opened its automated warehouse (FCA) to fulfill more than 100,000 customer orders per week.

“It still isn’t clear what the cause of the fire was or whether it is tied to the protests — though some have speculated it is in retaliation over the career-destroying nitrogen policy brought in by the Rutte government,” according to the Canadian website Counter Signal.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that thousands of Dutch farmers are blockading highways and food distribution centers to protest new Nitrogen rules that will force approx. 30% of Dutch cattle farms are out of business, according to government estimates.

Farmers sprayed the town hall of Lochem with liquid manure.

Dutch farmers have issued an ultimatum threatening to block the country’s airports, ports, and distribution centers.
