The highest quality since 1888!

Our history

Casteleijn Stroopwafels has existed since 1888 and has therefore been around for over 130 years! During that period, the company has grown from a bakery without customers to a company with a market that extends far beyond the borders. Grandfather D. Casteleijn started in 1888 with a bakery in Bergambacht, the bakery and the house were built, there was only one thing missing and that was the customers. That was no problem, for he went to the local residents to ask if he could deliver to them, and so the Casteleijn bakery was born.
