Kaptein Processed Cheese Factory
The Kaptein Processed Cheese Factory (PCF) manufactures four core products: cheese spread, smoked cheese, processed cheese blocks and industrial cheese, for use right across the food industry. We work closely with recognised suppliers of superior raw materials, resulting in a constant supply of only the best ingredients. Thanks to far-reaching automation, we are able to achieve high levels of efficiency, quality and hygiene from production through to packaging and the end product itself.
A rich history
Eyssen is a family company and was established on 28th August 1883. J. Eyssen, born in 1856, was the inventor of conserved grated cheese. He wanted to find a way to make cheese suitable for export to the the tropics and, after much costly experimentation, succeeded in producing a sustainable, tinned product in 1900. In 1905, the company was granted permission to use the name ‘Royal Factory for Eyssen’s Preserved Cheese’. With over 125 years’ knowledge and experience, the Eyssen Cheese Factory has become one of the most important producers of processed cheese products, not only in the Netherlands but on a much wider scale. Since June 15 2015, the new official company name of Eyssen has changed to Kaptein Processed Cheese Factory (PCF).
