Biscuiterie Declercq is a third-generation West-Flemish family business.
The production of our industrial ice cream cones, galettes, tulips and the like is still based on our family recipes, passed down from generation to generation. Even though we keep expanding our modern equipment, we remain faithful to the traditional flavours.
As an industrial company with family roots we are always available and approachable: we can find the right solution for every request thanks to our flexibility.
The production of ice cream biscuits takes place with attention for the various quality certificates. We improve the quality of our products day after day. The family recipe, a personal approach, and guaranteed quality are still paramount to us.
Continuous innovation has enabled us to grow into a leading industrial producer and supplier of ice cream biscuits. Wholesalers of desserts can contact us for ice cream cones and more, produced according to family traditions.

His son, Willy, joins the bakery in the meantime. They together buy their first automatic machine.
