When tradition meets innovation

Taste Westerlund is the name of the new family holding company founded by Jean-Jacques Westerlund in 2009.

In 2008, the well-known Antwerp-based Westerlund Group was sold to Euroports, ending more than a century of the family’s involvement in marine terminal operations and logistics.

The Westerlund Group was a world leader in the handling and logistics of forest products serving paper – and pulp  producers and consumers through its port terminals in Antwerp , Rouen , Tilbury and Changshu. The same year when the company was sold to Euroports, it handled over 9 million tons through its several locations worldwide.

The company name TASTE is derived from the names of Mr. and Mrs. Westerlunds’ two children: TAnguy and STEphanie.
