Dutch term or phrase: Fox borrel
Tevens vind ik dat XXX een downwaardse spiraal ondergaat. Ze gaan *Fox borrel* achterna. Te groot bedrijf weinig persoonlijk contact.

Never heard of this expression and according to Google it is not the name of a company -;)!

Sounds like wordplay for Foxboro.

Dutch sense of humour...

Given the structure of the sentence, it is most likely to refer to a company. Foxboro are quite a large co.
