Our story


Tradition and craftsmanship since 1975

Irène's croquettes were always a success at parties and especially at Christmas. But when the village butcher also wanted to sell the famous croquettes, Irène and Erik Kelderman transformed the garden garage into a real workshop. The complete production of fresh croquettes took place here.

On the road in 1977

After two years of hard work, business is booming, and an investment is made in a new van to deliver the fresh croquettes. The homemade wooden trays to transport the croquettes are replaced by yellow boxes.

Move to larger premises in 1985

The garden garage clearly becomes too small and the former chocolate factory in Geuzenveldenstraat in Schoten is purchased. The son, Tom Kelderman, takes charge of the renovation and invests in a real croquette machine.


Start of the production of potato puree in 1995

Due to the growing demand in the market for potato puree, Kelderman starts to produce the typical potato puree rolls we know today.

In 2011, Tom Kelderman merged with Johnny Goossenaerts of the Altoni company, known for its high-quality pasta. The values of tradition, passion, experience and craftsmanship were highly valued by both companies. They launch a joint business in a brand-new building in the Sluizenstraat in Schoten.
