Freshly grated cheese and powdered cheeses

About Grozette


Grozette's pioneering years took place in Nieuwerbrug, a town near Woerden in the Central Netherlands.

In 1963, Mr. van Zijl and Mr. Groot laid the first foundations of what would later become a global cheese manufacturer.

The name Grozette is derived from both founders, namely De Groot and Van Zijl (Grozette).

In 1973, work began on the construction of the current facility in Woerden.

During its early years, Grozette produced grated cheese and cheese biscuits.

After 1973, the company began to specialise in grating and drying cheese.

Grozette currently has around 140 employees.
The company supplies grated and powdered cheese for the retail, catering and industrial sectors in around 30 countries.
