In 1972, to be precise, the company DE SPIEGELEIRE was founded in Bocholt and an exclusive agreement was immediately signed with the pâté manufacturer Ropa in Kortenaken. From our base in Belgian Limburg, we initially focused on the Dutch market. Pâté was still a luxury product for Dutch consumers at the time and conquering this market was the ultimate challenge. Since then, our Belgian quality pâté has become an integral part of the daily Dutch diet. Over the years DE SPIEGELEIRE has grown into a modern, leading pâté producer with sales markets in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, England, Spain, Dubai, and beyond.
As the second generation, David De Spiegeleire took over the helm from his father in 2003. And so, from father to son, a specialist pâté producer came into being.
