Our journey since 1922; first decade 1922-1930

Date: 1 December 2021

NNZ celebrates its 100th anniversary in October 2022. We will be sharing ‘our journey since 1922’, starting today with our first decade:

1922-1930
 
Our 1st decade revolved around pioneering: Founder Rien Boot (1889-1964) brings the story of NNZ (Noord Nederlandsche Zakkenhandel) to life in 1922. The first branch in the Groningen warehouse Libau is followed in 1924 by a building on the Hoornsche Diep in Groningen. Pioneering steps include: trips abroad to the Baltic States, the Czech Republic and Hungary. And the purchase of jute bags and jute cloth in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. In 1928 a turnover was made of NLG 334,000.
