Our family-run company was founded in 1888 by Arie Geurts. At that time, Geurts supplied fruit and related products to private customers and fruit processing companies in the area. However, demand for jam and other fruit products became so great that the Geurts family decided to start processing fruit themselves. The family-run company developed into a large factory in Dodewaard. All kinds of fruit and vegetable products were canned here until well into the 20th century.
