About Smoked by Liz
The online delicatessen, SMOKED by Liz, was founded in 2021 by Elisabeth (Liz) Beukers, born and raised in the village of Bunschoten-Spakenburg. I grew up with delicious, pure and authentic delicacies. From home 'on the farm', I inherited the love and respect for natural products. From my family heroes the passion, love and conviction for the entrepreneurial profession!
I was born into an agricultural entrepreneurial family from Bunschoten. From my mother's side, I am part of one of Spakenburg's oldest fishing families. Its origins date back to the early 15th century.
My father, Rut Beukers, is a highly successful agricultural entrepreneur, who successfully founded, expanded and then sold his entire agricultural empire from a single calf. My great-grandfather, Vok Muys, was a very successful, well-known and an extremely influential entrepreneur in the fish trade as well as smokehouse business across Europe. My grandfather, Rut Koops, successfully put the painting craft of the Koops family business back on the map with quality as the main characteristic.
These three men are my family heroes, to this I owe my entrepreneurial spirit and my perseverance. The secret of these successful entrepreneurs: Think, Dare & above all Do. This is now my entrepreneurial motto.

Where is it made?
Our deliciously exclusive, luxurious and authentic delicacies are smoked, how could it be otherwise, in the beautiful fishing village of Spakenburg. Spakenburg's harbours are inextricably linked to Liz's fishing family. This is where the botters on which the fishermen earned their living are located and this is where they were welcomed back after weeks at sea.
Liz's great-grandfather played a key role in receiving the fish catch, trading them and smoking them. Our smoke masters belong to the same influential fishing family of Liz and have inherited the vision of developing an honest product while respecting our nature. Passion, conviction, love and respect for the product. You can taste that!
