COROOS is a Dutch family company since 1957. We process fresh vegetables, fruit and pulses into healthy, plant-based, tasty and sustainable food every day. On an average day, more than 650 people work at our two modern production sites in Geldermalsen and Kapelle.

Our mission: To contribute to people's health with convenient, tasty and accessible plant-based food, made with respect for our planet.

The products we make within COROOS are mainly sold under private label in all well-known supermarkets in Europe. Private label means that the product is sold with the name of the relevant supermarket on the label.

In addition, COROOS sells equivalent products under its own brand Servero in the Netherlands and via COROOS Export outside Europe.

COROOS is also a supplier of high-quality basic products in bulk packaging or bulk for further processing within the food industry. Based on the business-to-business principle, these products are supplied to food professionals and food Industries.

Using the extensive knowledge we possess within COROOS and driven by innovation, we have developed unique and patented preservation methods. This enables COROOS to produce very high-quality products from 100% vegetables, fruit and pulses. COROOS drives the protein transition as a producer of various legume spreads and basic raw materials as an alternative to animal proteins.

With all these activities, COROOS realises an annual gross turnover of around €300 million.
