N.V. VCM was established in 1947 in the District of Commewijne in Suriname. Plantation Rust en Werk was a sugarcane plantation owned by Jamin, a Dutch candy company. In 1978, along with 10 other plantations, René van Alen, an industrialist, and his wife Betsy van Alen-Samuels, purchased it to establish an agricultural business with export potential. Plantation Rust en Werk is the home base of the N.V. Verenigde Cultuur Maatschappijen (N.V. VCM).
