85 years of cheese & butter!

85th anniversary

Today, 28th April 2021, is a special day!
The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and it is a beautiful day to celebrate 85 years
of our family business at Kaptein: a very special milestone!

Mireille Kaptein, Managing Director: “This feels very special to me personally. My grandfather Willem started selling cheese in Beverwijk in 1936. My father René, the second generation, added value by introducing slicing and packaging the cheese and butter for the food service. Every generation brings something extra, but always with the down-to-earth approach of a Dutch family business. It's great to see that 85 years later our products are available worldwide. I am proud to be the third generation to work with all my Kaptein colleagues in this wonderful family business. That is why today we toast together both the past 85 years, and the future that lies ahead!”
