Our history

Founded in 1830

Founded in 1830 P. Visser & Zoon has a proven track record of over 180 years. Our company started in Medemblik, an old port town located in the north of The Netherlands. We started as a small enterprise serving mainly the domestic market with the import of spices and tropical fruits from the former Dutch East Indies. This was the start of an international network that has developed over time. In 2001 Mr Jan Kees Hottentot joined the company  and further expanded the activities within the EU and overseas, assisted by Mrs Rietje Peters and Mrs Karin Kreelekamp.
