ARK
In 1920, Ark’s was a traditional bakery that made rusks and gingerbread. The ARK family consisted of five sons and two daughters. Two of those sons, Gerrit Jan van Ark and Martinus Johan van Ark, decided to build a factory in 1931
on the Zwolseweg. Ark’s Beschuitfabriek is still there today.

At Ark's, only rusks and gingerbread were made in the beginning. In 1938 biscuit/cookies were added. Ark’s initially supplied the bakers and later also the grocers throughout the Netherlands. Ark’s products were particularly popular in provinces such as Overijssel, Zeeland, and South Holland. In 1975 the factory was taken over by Bolletje. The Ark’s products were a welcome addition to the Bolletje range!
