ABOUT KARIKAAS

In March 1984 Karin and Rients Rypma moved to New Zealand from the Netherlands and established a small factory in Loburn, North Canterbury, because the water was so clean and uncontaminated. (And we are still here.)  The name Karikaas comes from Karin and Rients, and kaas is the Dutch word for cheese.

Two families bought Karikaas from Karin and Rients in January 2004. They are the Lamers and the Hawkins families. Diana and Alan have raised their family on the Loburn premises, where Diana is general manager.
