Discover our history
The two production locations of DOC Kaas B.V. are both located in Hoogeveen. On the Alteveerstraat, we have been producing dairy products since 1896. It is a historic building, but thanks to the modern production facilities it is also very contemporary! A little further along in Hoogeveen, at Zuivelpark, is our largest production site, which came into use in 2003. The company’s headquarters are also located here.
