The origin of ERU Foodservice
ERU was founded in 1824 by Egbert Ruijs (E RU), a true cheese lover. For over 100 years, sliced cheeses and cheeses were sold, and in 1938 the first plant was opened for the production of processed cheese. This processed cheese proved such a success that ERU eventually started increasing its focus on cheese spreads. In 1959, Goudkuipje was introduced. This soon became EUR’s flagship product, with more flavour varieties being introduced over the years. In the 1990s, ERU launched its Goudkuipje portion packs. This marked the company’s first foray into the food service market, responding to the growing need for portion packs in this sector.
