Enjoy the unique taste of our butter

Van Ballegooijen Foods

Van Ballegooijen Foods (VBF) is a food group with two business units: Royal VIVBuisman (RVB) and its sister company Van der Pol (VDP). We are one family connected with each other by butter. Royal VIVBuisman produces butter and milk fat products. Van der Pol uses this butter in its dough products.

Van der Pol, founded in 1885, is being called “butter dough specialist”. The Dutch family-run business focuses on manufacturing butter dough products, using butter from its sister company Royal VIVBuisman. This ensures the recognizable Dutch flavour. Since 1987, Van der Pol may also call “Purveyor to Her Majesty the Queen”, a company that distinguishes itself through quality, solidity and continuity, endorsed by the king.

The dough products range from puff pastry and croissant dough to cookie dough chunks. We save our customers time and money, allowing them to focus on their core business. Whether you are a baker that makes and sells artisanal products or an ice cream producer that adds cookie dough chunks to your ice cream: Van der Pol has the perfect product for you and your business!
