In Holland the private producer of the analogue cheese brand Kees has been declared bankrupt. Keesmakers (Dutch for cheese makers) was founded in 2010 and made cheese in which part of the milk was substituted by vegetable ingredients, in particular oil and using vegetarian rennet. In 2014 Keesmakers started a cooperation with the Dutch dairy cooperative DOC in which DOC got nine percent ownership of Keesmakers and took over the production of Kees. In time between DOC has been taken over by the German dairy cooperative DMK. In 2015 an investors company bought 38 percent of the ownership of Keesmakers. The trustee is looking for acquisition candidates for Keesmakers.
