"Verkade: A Culinary Legacy of Craftsmanship and Innovation"
Explore the rich history of Verkade, where craftsmanship and innovation converge. On May 2, 1886, Ericus Gerhardus Verkade opened his Steam Bread and Cracker Factory 'De Ruyter' on the idyllic banks of the Zaan. A humble start with bread and crackers laid the foundation for a success story, regularly expanding the product range.
Born in 1835 as the son of a notary in Vlaardingen, fate led Verkade to a boarding school after his father's death. Returning to his birthplace, the Zaanstreek, Verkade witnessed the industrial challenges of his time. The 19th century brought aging industrial machinery, clinging to windmills. The Canal Act of 1863 brought change, with channelized water and a direct railway connection, allowing Verkade to shape his entrepreneurship from his legacy.
Despite the setback of a fire in 1875, Verkade transformed his fate and traded in oil-bearing grains. As a born manufacturer, he opted for a bread factory, despite his lack of bakery experience, to fulfil the absence of large-scale bread production in the countryside.
On May 2, 1886, Verkade started his bakery 'De Ruyter' on an expansive terrain along the Zaan. Here, not only bread but also crackers were baked, efficiently utilizing the heat from the ovens. The name 'De Ruyter' honoured the past, referring to Zaandam-west's first mill with the same name.
In 1950, Verkade received the prestigious Royal designation, a recognition of his dedication to craftsmanship and quality. Explore Verkade's culinary legacy, where taste and tradition converge in a timeless tale of Royal allure.
