Services and partners

Organising a great event calls for stamina. Creativity. Professionalism. It’s all about teamwork. At the Van Nelle Fabriek, we have longstanding partnerships with industry professionals at the top of their game.

Creative caterers always on the lookout for new culinary experiences. Technicians skilled in delivering cutting edge AV technology – everything turnkey. We work with Traffic Support partners to ensure the safety of our guests. They manage every aspect of traffic, keeping everything moving in the right direction. Our Crowd Safety partner safeguards your personal safety. We also work with a charitable organisation, Stichting Jarige Job, they can add a broader social context to any event.


Catering Lokaal believes in supporting the local entrepeneurs and that they can't be missed in our society. Catering Lokaal is possible to service on each service level; whether it is a congress or (sustainable) foodfestival, a (trade) fair, staff party, walking diners or served out high end diners. The difference is that they don't get their products from a wholesale supplier, but from the local entrepeneurs themselves. Think about all the beautifull products of the entrepeneurs in the Fenix Food Factory! Catering Lokaal brings craft, specialism and passion to the table and that's what you will taste as well.

Hete Peper believes that food is more than a meal. Food is enjoyment, food is inspiring. Food is a way to connect and interact. Our quest for new inspirations, for that unique, specific flavour, never ends. No matter how challenging the brief, we deliver an unforgettable dining experience. We create innovative, inspiring food, bespoke for every client’s requirements. Our mission is to provide flawless service and a mouth-watering menu. We understand that each event is unique, and always craft exceptional dishes – you can taste the passion and creativity in every mouthful.

Van der Linde believes that a successful event is only successful if all your expectations are exceeded. A unique experience is a must, and often relies on precision and an eye for detail. These are the kinds of challenges we love, and we’re here to help you from start to finish. We develop bespoke concepts, or offer a choice of ready-made alternatives designed in-house. We take care of the complete catering on location in combination with the right décor, decoration and styling. Van der Linde Catering + Events specialises in 'Dutch Cuisine'. A contemporary culinary style based on sourcing local products with a story behind them, which we select for their quality, taste and origin. As far as possible, we use 100% organic, sustainably produced, animal-friendly and fair-trade products. And that’s what you see, feel, smell and taste!

Van Nelle goes Vegan with 'Vedge'

We are the first meeting and event location in the Netherlands to offer a full vegan catering option. Veganism is a fast-growing diet choice, as people increasingly choose to live a more conscious lifestyle, and reduce their impact on the planet. We designed our full vegan menu to give people an organic, ethical option, and a great culinary experience. Van Nelle Fabriek Events, Chef Friedjof Kempenaar and Grand Catering developed ‘Vedge’, an entirely vegan catering option.

Many people are amazed at just how delicious vegetarian dishes turn out to be, and even the staunchest of meat-lovers enjoy our veggie offerings. ‘Vedge’ is a great option for small groups, and for events with thousands of visitors.
