A full-service provider for fresh-food logistics.


Varekamp Coldstores was established in 1953 and started as a family business with the refrigerated storage of grapes, grown in the horticultural region of "Westland". Forty years after the company was founded, it merged with Van Rijn Group, which has been in business since 1855. In 2013 Varekamp Coldstores has taken over by the Kloosterboer Group. But since march 2019 the company is out of the Kloosterboer Group.

Key values as business partner

Varekamp Coldstores focuses on the logistics so you can focus on your business. Flexibility and proactiveness are keywords that best describe our business.

The suppliers' barcodes and pallet numbers enable us to track and trace your products at all times. Tracking and tracing is mandatory according to Article 18 of the European Union's General Food Law.

Each step in the order process is fully recorded. Every change is entered in our sophisticated Warehouse Management System. Reports are automatically generated and emailed to you, so that you always have the latest information. This makes our logistics operations fully transparent.

Focus on logistics. Flexible and proactive service. Discrete. Traceable. Transparent. Varekamp Coldstores is trusted at home and abroad. Proof thereof is in the numerous long-standing relationships we have with our customers. Varekamp Coldstores: the 'cool-est' business partner.
