Even Barack Obama enjoyed Belberry quality every time he stayed at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The jams as well as the company’s other artisan products are available in forty countries around the world. In 2014, the artisanal ketchup was named the best innovative product at SIAL in Paris, the world’s largest food trade show. In 2014, Belberry won both a Tavola Award and the title of best SME in West Flanders. As a ‘maître confiturier’ Thierry has worked his luxury preserves magic for Albert Adrià, Sergio Herman and Geert van Hecke.
Thierry Vanderfven succeeds in combining the role of passionate ‘maître confiturier’ with that of a dynamic entrepreneur. Even though Belberry is internationally praised and some of his premium products were featured in Oprah Winfrey’s “O” Magazine he strikes us as very much down-to-earth.
From our first meet up, until the public launch he has been demonstrating great support for the HERITAGE-project.
IN HIS PRODUCTS, THIERRY COMBINES CREATIVE RECIPES WITH QUALITY INGREDIENTS. HIS BRAND ASPIRES INTERNATIONAL AMBITION, ROOTED IN BELGIAN TRADITION.
‘Maître confiturier’ a legacy from father to son. Thierry was raised in his parents’ greengrocers in Kortrijk. His father, André, used to prepare traditional jams and jellies which were widely reputed for their quality. In 1990, Thierry took the helm and decided to fully focus on a product range of luxury preserves. This allowed him to pursue his passion without restrictions. In no time he managed to innovate towards the internationally renowned brand he is the proud owner of today.
Recognised as premium quality, appreciated worldwide. Thierry gets a lot of satisfaction when he sees his products being enjoyed in the most premium settings around the world. His greatest satisfaction, however, is the privilege to manage his team of passionate employees. Using traditional cooking methods, he values their contribution in the creation of quality preserves.
WORLDWIDE PRAISED FOR OFFERING ONLY THE BEST, THIERRY HAS EARNED HIS WAY INTO THE MOST UPMARKET DEPARTMENT STORES, 5* HOTELS AND EVEN IN OPRAH WINFREY’S “O” MAGAZINE.
