Merba started in 1920 as an industrial bakery and remained so ever since. With a great emphasis on innovation and development, the factory has grown from 5.000 m2 in 1979 to 50.000 m2 in 2010. In this period of 30 years, Merba moved the factory within The Netherlands to Oosterhout. We increased our production capacity and we introduced several new products into the international market.
Because of our efforts to continuously expand our production capacity by focusing on differentiation and optimization of our products and processes, we are able to increase our quality and efficiency. Although we supply high volumes of cookies world wide, Merba remains flexible with regards to different product specifications for recipe, size, weight and packaging material. We are able to achieve this flexibility by advanced machinery and equipment combined with our well-trained personnel.
Merba’s mission is to produce high quality bakery products, mostly under private label and with a good price-quality ratio. We achieve this with an automated and robotized process flow and machinery park. We focus on labour reduction combined with high production volumes, our growing export market and our high standards for quality, food safety and sustainability.
