My grandfather, Andrew Van Eerden, had a passion for quality produce and a customer-first focus. It was this passion that drove him to start ‘Van Eerden Co.’ in 1920 as a wholesale produce market in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. While Van Eerden Foodservice has evolved and innovated since its founding, we are still deeply rooted in his underlying vision established by my grandfather, father, and brothers.
As a 4th generation, family-owned and operated company, our goal is not to become the largest distributor, but be the market’s preeminent distributor of choice. We are dedicated to our Michigan based customers by providing a unique combination of old school customer service with relevant business solutions focused on your individual business needs.
Today, our commitment to our customers and employees is to provide A Fresh Approach to Foodservice. We aim to fulfill our mission of great people delivering a great experience, by consistently supplying our customers with Fresh Ideas, Fresh Products, and Fresh Solutions.
