Verkade CookiesVerkade has been making cookies and chocolate since 1886. Ericus Gerhardus Verkade opens his Steam, Bread and Rusk Factory under the name De Ruyter. De Ruyter was a reference to a mill in Zaandam, still recognisable in the logo of Verkade. Bread no longer makes the brand, but biscuits and chocolate all the more. What about tea and coffee? Verkade has a wide choice of biscuits, bars and savoury snacks.
