Verkade was founded on May 2, 1886. Then Ericus Gerhardus Verkade opened his Steam, Bread and Rusk factory “De Ruyter”. The name "De Ruyter" was chosen with a bow to the past; the first flour mill of West Zaandam bore that name. The products of the first hour were; bread, rusks, honey gingerbread and Langetjes, later the tea lights were added. "De Ruyter" is still recognizable in the logo of the Verkade brand. Over time, Verkade has switched to making cookies and chocolate.
In 1950 Verkade received the designation Royal.
