Foppen, a former family company, has a rich and colorful history. Jan Foppen (the first generation) was first granted a ‘permit to vend fish’ – as they used to say in those days. Their smoked eel was sold from a cargo bike, as well as from the company smokehouse in the center of Harderwijk. The company grew rapidly and, before long, we began selling several more types of smoked fish, smoked salmon in particular. In the year two thousand, a new factory was built in Greece to meet the increase in demand. This means that we can offer a full range of salmon products worldwide for retail, food service and industry.
Tradition in taste
Foppen has a long tradition of skilled craftsmen, all of whom were born into the fish industry. They knew from day one how to make smoked eel with the best flavor. It’s an age-old formula based on natural methods, and it forms the basis of our current range of smoked fish.
And because the company has stayed in the Foppen family down the generations, we have stayed true to this tradition until this day. Foppen has grown to become an international company, and we now have around 400 colleagues working in Harderwijk in the Netherlands and Preveza in Greece.
