Place of Origin

Maker Roodenrijs, Delft (ROKA)

Maker Details ROKA Cheese Crispies was founded by Jo Roodenrijs in 1946, as a sidebusiness to his patisserie shop in Delft, the Netherlands. The company specialized in the production of very high quality, crispy puff-pastry biscuits, abundantly flavoured with over 30% matured Gouda cheese and packed in an attractively decorated tin, with excellent storage qualities and providing an exclusive image. By 1955 the ROKA products were sold in 32 countries and the original bakery could not cope with the growing demand any longer. In the past 20 years the company has grown solidly and in 2002 it was sold to a third party.
