Our brand name “vandeMeester”, means “from the master” in Dutch. This is because all of our baking mixes are developed and perfected by the master himself, Dirk Okhuijsen. With over 20 years in experience in party & event catering in products, such as: pancakes, poffertjes, stroopwafels, crêpes, churros, donuts and waffles, we have served hundreds of thousands of guests in over 10.000 top notch events. vandeMeester.com started to develop authentic new recipes in 2013, which resulted in a cooperation with an industrial mixer for the baking mixes.
Currently we have a full range of premium baking mixes, equipment, full support and training for the fast food and confectionary industry, leisure and the hotel industry worldwide. We work together with big names in the baking mixes industry for our production of mixes. Thousands of kilos are sold weekly and find their way all over the continents by truck, train airplane or boat.
We are a official dealer for equipment such as Neumaerker, a German company specialised in equipment for waffles and pancakes. We are also constantly exploring and inventing new ways to improve the equipment or baking methods, so our clients can directly benefit from this. A result of this, is the Easy-Pancakes concept; a more efficient way to make pancakes. A second example is our gas operated poffertjes grills. These are improved for less gas usage, with a saving of over 50%. It is our mission to improve and invent how to be more efficient, how to work faster and smarter.
Apart from baking mixes, vandeMeester.com also offers professional training. We offer academy training for chefs and entrepreneurs and teach how to make stroopwafels, pancakes and waffles. Many of our new clients are start-ups and are not only looking for a supplier, but also for help and guidance. This is exactly what we love to do: to help our clients to become successful.
