OUR HISTORY

1929

De Graaff Cheese

Our history goes back to 1929, when Cornelis de Graaff went into business in the town of Enkhuizen in North Holland. By specializing in the packaging of cheese, from generation to generation we have built up the knowledge and expertise that we use in our modern packaging plant every day.

Van der Sterre

Vandersterre has been refining and selling Dutch cheese since 1946. That was the year when Piet van der Sterre started his enterprise in the cheese village of Bodegraven. Ever since, this high-quality naturally matured cheese has been popular both inside and outside the Netherlands.

2017

New Meerkerk location

The maturing of cheese on wooden shelves is a skill that we mastered since the very start. Whereas the cheese used to be matured in a farmhouse cheese attic, we now mature it in the traditional way in our new premises.c
