Heiploeg: Your partner in seafood enjoyment!
The origin of the Heiploeg – one of Europe’s leading shrimp processors and distributors – goes back to before 1900 when the family businesses Heidema and Van der Ploeg were founded in Zoutkamp, the Netherlands.
Heiploeg became the name of the company in the early 70s which was the result of the cooperation between Heidema and Van der Ploeg.
In 1999 Heiploeg's ultra-modern processing plant just outside Zoutkamp became operational. The Heiploeg plant in Zoutkamp now is Heiploeg's specialised plant for chilled seafood products and is also home to Heiploeg's transport division Heitrans.
Heiploeg has its own state-of-the-art peeling facility in Tétouan, Morocco, for the hand-peeling of North Sea shrimp.
End of 2012, Heiploeg opened an office in India, to have a presence in Asia, the most important sourcing area for tropical shrimp.
Heiploeg employs some 2,500 people and has an annual output of approx. 35 million kg of final products made from shrimp and selected other shellfish and crustaceans, such as crayfish, mussels and scallops.
Heiploeg is Europe's leading shrimp supplier and Europe's no. 1 in North Sea shrimp, enabling European consumers to enjoy a broad range of high quality shrimp products, produced from shrimp sourced all over the world and distributed via retail and food service outlets, wholesalers and food processing companies.
