The history of De Kruidenaer goes back to the year 2003, when Jacqueline and Christ Monden decided to launch a company for fresh herbs. They were no strangers to growing fresh herbs, because up to that time, they had been involved in growing tomatoes and paprika. However, a new challenge was required, and was found in fresh herbs.

The diversity in species and their options for use, the desire to offer these herbs as Dutch products and their delicious scents were a few of the driving motives. The company was called De Kruidenaer, and it has not stopped growing since its inception.

Over the years, the assortment of De Kruidenaer has continued to expand. Today, it offers almost thirty different species. Several new species are currently being developed, enabling De Kruidenaer to meet the demands of its customers, which it considers to be of the utmost importance.
