Bodegraven (NL) – March 2019


Van der Heiden Kaas has acquired Fromagerie Brigitte

‘Dutch and French cheeses, a tasteful entity’

Family business Van der Heiden Kaas, distributor of many artisanal cheeses, has acquired Fromagerie Brigitte on February 1st. This has further broadened the product range. In addition to the special quality of Dutch cheeses in many flavours, the acquisition of Fromagerie Brigitte, specialized in the import of French cheese, also brings the French cheese in the product range of Van der Heiden Kaas.

International wholesale Van der Heiden Kaas, located in Bodegraven (NL) offers a wide range of cheese brands, such as the real Dutch cheeses from Stolwijk, Gouda, Edam and Maasdam. Commodities are supplied, from young cheese to extra matured and extra old cheese, but also cheese specialties with many special flavours, with ‘passion for quality’.


Best of both
The Netherlands is a pre-eminent cheese country, but France is also known as a country with a rich experience in making and ripening cheese specialties. Van der Heiden Kaas now has brought together the best of two real cheese countries through the acquisition of Fromagerie Brigitte. Fromagerie Brigitte is specialized in importing French cheese, especially in the cave ripened cheese. The Gris cheese is produced in the Netherlands and ripened in a cave in France.


‘Gris’, but colourful in taste experience
Gris cheese benefits from the ideal conditions in a cave to ripen the cheese. This way the cheese reaches perfect ripening after a few months and can develop its full flavour. ‘Gris’ of colour, but colourful in taste experience.

With this acquisition, Van der Heiden Kaas can serve you as a customer better in terms of knowledge of cheese and the expansion of your cheese assortment. Brigitte Bergmans will remain responsible for the activities regarding the sales of, among others, the Gris cheese.
