Verkade is originally a Dutch company that manufactured items such as rusk, chocolate and biscuits. Tea lights were also manufactured for some time. The Verkade factories have traditionally been located in Zaandam and are important in the development of the food industry in the Zaan region.
Verkade was founded on May 2, 1886. Then Ericus Gerhardus Verkade opened his Steam, Bread and Rusk factory “De Ruyter”. The name “De Ruyter” was chosen with a bow to the past; the first flour mill in West Zaandam bore that name. The products of the first hour were; bread, rusk, honey gingerbread and Langetjes, later also the tea lights were added. “De Ruyter” is still recognizable in the logo of the Verkade brand. Over time, Verkade switched to making biscuits and chocolate.
