Verkade, a genuine dutch brand.
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 carried that name. The products of the first hour were; bread, rusk, honey gingerbread and biscuits, later on, they also produced tea candles. "De Ruyter" is now still recognizable in the logo of the Verkade brand. In the course of time, Verkade switched to making cookies and chocolate.

In 1950 Verkade received the predicate, Royal.

The nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) is an annual, creeping and sometimes climbing herbaceous plant of the family Tropaeolaceae.

The smooth, grey-green leaves are reminiscent of a coat of arms. That contributed to the naming because the botanical name Tropaeolum is derived from the Latin word "tropaeum", which indicated a tree hung with weapons as a sign of victory.

Flowers, leaves and seeds are edible and are reminiscent of horseradish with their pungent taste. The nasturtium is also counted among the spices. The leaves can be salted and the flower buds and green fruits can be marinated.
