Your partner in British Dutch Business


Join us for the Netherlands City Lunch on Wednesday 21st of September 2022 at the Dutch Centre in London. 

This month we are delighted to be joined by guest speaker Ben Greensmith (Lord Chocolonely iii) from NBCC member, Tony’s Chocolonely. Tony’s Chocolonely is a Netherlands based brand, but they have recently launched in the UK and are fast becoming a household name. Ben will share the story of how Tony’s began, the success in the Netherlands but mainly about how they have established a new brand in a crowded market here in the UK. This will be a real insight into setting up your business in a new country and the journey Tony’s Chocolonely has been on. Ben will also talk about what it’s like to be an Englishman in a Dutch company.
