Our story begins in 1953 when Mr. Herman Barentz from Amsterdam, The Netherlands had a bright idea. Through his great connections to the Roquette company in France he got the opportunity to represent their business activities in The Netherlands.
Soon thereafter, this one supplier led to another and to even more suppliers, resulting in a broader ingredients portfolio, resulting in even more customers.
Eventually, the growing business in The Netherlands leads to an expansion into Belgium and Luxemburg, 25 years after the inception of the company.
Three years later, Barentz Germany opened its doors and soon thereafter, Barentz Poland and Barentz in the Czech Republic were a fact.
Now Barentz is operating in some 60 countries on all continents, growing fast in the Asia Pacific region and in North and Latin America.
But no matter where in the world Barentz is operating, the ambition and vision remains the same, to help customers grow their business and to be their preferred ingredients partner!
