About Van Zelst automaten

Van Zelst automaten is a family business that in 45 years has grown from a good marriage in a Brabant living room to a rural company with more than 7,000 customers. Van Zelst is a total supplier for work and catering and supplies various coffee machines in addition to coffee machines.

For us, coffee is inextricably linked to family values. Coffee represents relationships, cosiness and warmth. Our family places great importance on helping each other, to stay close and to care for future generations. Clean drinking water is indispensable for all this.

One litre for one litre

In our program One litre for one litre you can convert the water saving or water consumption of your product, service or organization into an equal amount of litres of clean drinking water in developing countries. Choosing a selection of customers or donating more litres is also an option. Transparency is paramount and we are happy to help you communicate about it!
