All about Karpa

Straight from our healthy soil, we create yummy, organic, local, seasonal food.
You may wake us up in the middle of the night to hold us accountable for our
5 Karpa promises:

Karpa strongly believes in the power of Mother Earth and all she provides us. The nourishment we get from our soil is not only pure but also very delicious. By having our local farmers and chefs work together, bringing all the flavours and colours of the season together, we can turn these products into yummy meals.
We bring the taste of real food!

Karpa. Good soil, good food, good people

Who planted the Karpa seeds?

Karpa was founded by [Kitchen and entrepreneur rebel] chef and award-winning cookbook author Jonathan Karpathios and ex-CEO Wessanen Benelux and entrepreneur Xander Meijer. They both want people to reconnect with real, pure food. Also make people more aware of what food can do for your health and vitality, maybe now even more important than ever. Veggies and healthy food are not boring. Jonathan and his team bring you the best meals that are a true party to your taste buds.

Both Jonathan and Xander are also very much invested in changing our food system. By working closely together with local farmers we’re working towards a short supply chain. Farmers who are interested in shifting to biodiverse farming can reach out to these guys too. Since they both have a lot of experience with fair food and extensive knowledge in turning exhausted soil into healthy rich soil.

Hi, we are Chickpeas

Hi, we are

Even though we’ve been around for thousands of years, only quite recently people even call us Super Foods. Maybe it’s because we are so full of nutrients, like exceptional levels of magnesium and vitamin B6 for example or maybe because chickpea plants can help restore exhausted soil. That’s probably why Karpa is such a big fan! You know what they say..Good Soil, good food, good people!
But I think it’s mostly because we look so good…and taste even better
