Foundings of the company

In the early 1980s, there was a regional manager of a large supermarket chain who sensed an increasing demand for Turkish and Surinamese products. He realized that, ‘Foreign customers naturally eat very different products than what we sell here’. Chanced upon this opportunity, he began importing these products and started selling them to retailers. The demand for foreign foods is constantly changing. The cultural mix is becoming more colorful, while Dutch people are also starting to eat more “international food”. Engel Foreign Food is now the largest importer and supplier of international food products and we are:


  • Market leader of Instant Noodles in the Netherlands
  • Exclusive EU/UK importer of Chupa Chups drinks and Mentos drinks
  • Largest European producer of Aloë Vera drinks
