De Zuivelarij was founded in 2014. The intention was to make small-scale, as a hobby, dairy from nearby farmers. The first product, Berloumi, was quickly picked up by well-known cheese and food shops and afterwards by the Belgian wholesalers.

But we are also fascinated by innovation, food safety and creativity. It is the reason why we want to continue growing.

In 2016 we invested in a production line to be able to produce Berloumi more easily and ecologically.

Meanwhile there are also viVie, Ricotta from Berloumi, BerloumiBio, Berloumi Goat and Labneh. All of them with milk from other farmers. We specialize in, non-current, worldly dairy products with culinary applications.

Nowadays, Berloumi is found in about 500 food shops all over Belgium and at the retailers Okay, Spar, Colruytand Delhaize. Labnehis distributed by Delhaize and specialty stores.

In the Zuivelarij we work with local and often organic products. In the next years, we want to invest further in new technology and appliances, develop new products and make ecological investments. We want to remain the main Belgian halloumi producer and look carefully across borders.

Because in development and progress lies the true craft.

In 2019 The Zuivelarij got the HIB-label (Handmade in Belgium), and won the award of HIB-company of the year in East-Flanders. We did not win the national award but we still loved this beautiful video.
