Hero Benelux

Hello and welcome. We are Hero Benelux, part of the Hero Group, our Swiss parent company. Ever since 1914, Hero Benelux has been a household name in beautiful Breda. And now, more than 100 years later, Hero is still here. Our production has moved, but we still sell and market the tastiest Cassis, jams, baby food, snacks and dessert sauces from our office on the Teteringsedijk.

We do this with a passion for all the good things nature has to offer. We can hardly do otherwise – this passion is in our DNA. After all, we once started out as a fruit converter manufacturer, and fruit is still high on Hero's agenda to this day.

“The thing I enjoy most about working at Hero is the diversity and responsibility. No two days are the same, and all of them fly by. In addition, we have a very friendly team with a hands-on mentality, and together we achieve great things.”

Working at Hero

That's a good idea either way. After all, working at Hero is a lot of fun. Besides your daily work, it means playing padel together on random Monday evenings, having lunch together (summers in the office garden), fun team activities throughout the year, a legendary Christmas party, and great career opportunities.

A good work-life balance is a priority. That, amid good coffee, great colleagues and a beautiful office building in the heart of Breda, ensures the best possible setting for you to do your job. Do you work from home for a few days? There too, we lovingly provide a Hero-proof workplace.
