A real Dutch treat. For years and years, they’ve been a favourite treat at celebrations, parties and special occasions. In the Dutch province of Brabant – known for its love of the good life – the apple turnover was the start of something great. It was in the town of Beugen — right next to the German border — that Mr Meulensteen, as the local baker, felt an urge to make people happy by creating something new.
Read about Mola’s history
By working hard, using only the best ingredients and following traditional recipes, Mr Meulensteen’s adventure became a success. It spread throughout the region and then far beyond.
That was in the early 70s. A lot has changed since then. A whole lot of things. But some things have stayed the same. One of them is Mola’s drive for developing wonderful new products while always keeping that sense of tradition alive, remembering the importance of tried and true recipes, and using only the best ingredients. A look behind the scene
By this time, the company’s product range has expanded and the baker’s cap has been passed down to sons Geert and Vic Meulensteen. Step by step, they have made the company what it is today: a modern producer of traditional unbaked bakery products.
By now, the apple turnover has also been joined by dozens of other sweet and savoury bakery products. Cherry pastries, croissants, vanilla pastries, sausage and Dutch ‘frikadel’ rolls — just to name a few. Everything is prepared using fresh ingredients according to traditional recipes and then flash frozen, ready for baking in-store bakeries and warming the hearts of consumers.
