Rosti Mepal is a brand name of Mepal BV., A company dedicated to the production, design, manufacture, and distribution of plastic consumer products.

At the end of 1949, the Dane Egon Wolff founded the Dutch company Mepal Services in The Hague. At the time, the company had the sales rights for the Danish company Rosti. Mepal Services soon began developing and producing its own line of plastic products. Melamine formaldehyde was used as the plastic. The name was then shortened to Mepal and was registered as a trademark for the entire Benelux. The products were designed by freelance designers but since 1971, Mepal also employs its own designers. In 1963, the company moved to its current location.

The Danish company Rosti took over the company in 1976. In both companies, there was a completely different culture. Where Mepal concentrated on consumer products, Rosti focused on industrial supply. Rosti found the consumer products not profitable enough and therefore all attention went to the industrial branch. In 1986, Mepal grew out of its current premises and a decision had to be made about expansion or new construction. Although the new plans were ready, the Rosti group refused to invest in the new building. Against the wishes of the management of Mepal in it was decided to move the production to Denmark.
