Croquade, the Belgian heritage for all food lovers

Philosophy is to sell robust and simple product of a professional quality

We set out to offer our customers exceptional products, inspired by Belgium’s culinary heritage, namely fries and waffles. Today, our products are way ahead of the competition thanks to their reliability, durability and user-friendliness. Did you know that over a million of our fifty-year old waffle maker have been sold on the Belgian market alone (a country roughly the size of New York City)? With its interchangeable hot plates, it is a unique product that makes it possible to whip up several styles of waffles (including “giant” Brussels waffles).
