Foppen, a former family company, has a rich and colourful history. In 1918, 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 2000, 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.
