A unique opportunity to get to work with fresh green beans, to give a taste twist to vanilla with your own fermentation. This leads to unlimited possibilities. Think of combinations with rose petals, pistachio peels, rice, smoke or a very hot sauce.


Vanilla (Tlilxochitl) is native to Mexico. In ancient Mexico, the Totonacs, in the region now known as Veracruz, were considered producers of the best vanilla. The Mayas and Aztecs had developed a divine drink made of chocolate and vanilla. The Spaniards were so fond of this that Hernán Cortés (conquistadores) brought the vanilla and chocolate back to Spain and introduced it to Europe.

Rob Baan

"Vanilla crops outside, think of Madagascar, are more likely to be damaged by bad weather such as typhoons. Theft is also a problem: the beans are regularly stolen because of their high value. For these reasons, the beans are picked unripe which results in the thin dried sticks you buy in the supermarket. We wanted to do better, so we started producing vanilla in Dutch greenhouses. Only in this way can you imitate the ideal growing climate year-round without risky natural conditions and without pesticides or other chemicals. The result? Four to five thousand square meters of beautiful, rich and buttery vanilla beans of the highest quality."​
